Week 4 of the 2021 college football season has arrived, and it brings another loaded schedule on CBS Sports Network spanning Friday and Saturday. On Friday, No. 22 Fresno State rallied to beat UNLV 38-30 following Charlotte kicking off the action with a 42-39 win vs. Middle Tennessee to pick up its first Conference USA victory this season.
Saturday’s tripleheader kicked off at noon with Army vs. Miami (Ohio). The busy day continues at 3:30 p.m. with a high-powered Wyoming squad traveling to UConn. Finally, Western Kentucky will host Indiana at 8 p.m. with the Hilltoppers gearing up for a home game against a Power Five opponent. For the Hoosiers, the game represents a chance for the preseason No. 17 team to get back on track after a disappointing 1-2 start. With a game at No. 6 Penn State coming up in Week 4, Indiana needs to generate momentum, but WKU’s pass-happy offense will pose a challenge.
Here is the full rundown of all the Week 4 action on CBS Sports Network with all times ET.
Miami (Ohio) at Army
Storylines: Army is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2016 behind its usual efficient option attack and a stifling run defense. Miami (Ohio) is 1-2, but opened with road games at Cincinnati and Minnesota. Considering the level of competition, the Redhawks have done a decent job of generating explosive plays. They haven’t been great at defending the run, though, which means this could be a high-scoring game. Army won the last meeting 31-30 in 2018.
Wyoming at UConn
Storylines: UConn scored its first touchdowns against FBS opposition last week in a 52-21 loss to Army. Those scores came in garbage time, however, after the Huskies fell behind 42-0 at halftime and Army pulled its starters. But perhaps the momentum generated in the second half can propel the Huskies this week. They’ll need all the mojo they can find against a 3-0 Wyoming that scored a combined 95 points in the last two weeks.
Western Kentucky vs. Indiana
Storylines: Indiana began the season with lofty expectations, but it needs a get-right game after losses to Iowa and Cincinnati. The Hoosiers can’t get caught looking ahead to next week’s game at No. 6 Penn State, though, because Western Kentucky poses a tough test. The Hilltoppers and their pass-obsessed attack generated 435 yards through the air in a close loss to Army during Week 2. Indiana is 3-0 all-time against WKU, including a 38-21 road win in 2010.
