Last Saturday's Week 0 games served as a fun undercard for the start of the 2023 college football season, but now the main event -- Week 1 -- has finally arrived. This week's schedule kicked off Thursday with 11 games involving at least one team from the Football Bowl Subdivision.
CBS Sports Network's Week 1 coverage rolls on with four games on the Saturday slate. It all begins with Liberty taking on Bowling Green for the start of the Jamey Chadwell era. Western Kentucky then hosts South Florida, followed by Washington State playing at Colorado State. Coverage concludes with San Diego State looking to improve to 2-0 on the season when the Aztecs host Idaho State.
Here's a deeper look at the action that will air on CBS Sports Network in the coming days.

Idaho State at San Diego State
Storylines: San Diego State survived Ohio in Week 0 by holding off the Bobcats at home for a 20-13 victory. The Aztecs offense left something to be desired, but quarterback Jalen Mayden established a firm connection with wide receiver Mark Redman with a pair of touchdown passes. Hosting Idaho State, which competes in the Football Championship Subdivision and only won a single game last season, should give San Diego State a good opportunity to sort out any kinks before the Aztecs play back-to-back games against Pac-12 teams. San Diego State hosts UCLA in Week 2 before traveling to No. 18 Oregon State in Week 3.
