Five games played in a span of two days this weekend will see games from three FBS conferences on CBS Sports Network as we crawl deeper into the 2021 college football season. We're to the point where teams are clawing for bowl eligibility and position in their conference standings. The action started Friday night with an in-state battle, as Nevada defeated UNLV 51-20. Then, on Saturday, the network will show a four-game marathon of action spanning the whole day.
First up will be a MAC showdown between Bowling Green and Buffalo as the Bulls look to build off of a beatdown of Akron last weekend. Then, in the afternoon, Louisiana Tech and Old Dominion square off in a game between Conference USA foes in need of victories. The evening window brings a game between Boise State and Colorado State as the Rams seek their first-ever victory against the Broncos.
Finally, the late-night game provides what should be a thrilling showdown between two of the Mountain West's top teams as No. 21 San Diego State hosts Fresno State. It will be a test of the Bulldogs' prolific offense against the vaunted Aztecs' defense.
