The back half of the 2023 college football season is here, and CBS Sports Network is once again home to a great slate of games in Week 8.
Following a break from the FBS action Thursday and Friday, things ramp back up Saturday with three games in the lineup. The MAC takes the spotlight in the noon ET window when Ohio hosts Western Michigan. The Bobcats were rolling on a five-game winning streak before an upset loss at Northern Illinois in Week 7. They’ll now look to restore some momentum at home against a Broncos squad that has dropped five of its last six outings.
The afternoon window features a nonconference meeting between UConn and South Florida. The Huskies, coming off a bye, defeated Rice in Week 6 for their first victory of the season following an 0-5 start. Meanwhile, the Bulls are looking to avoid a three-game losing streak after falling to UAB and FAU across the past two weeks. Coverage concludes with Mountain West action in the evening slate when San Jose State hosts Utah State. The Aggies lost a close one against a formidable Fresno State squad in Week 7, while the Spartans cruised past New Mexico to snap a three-game losing streak.
