Austin Peay in Western Kentucky

Date: Saturday August 27 | Time: Midday
Location: Houchens-Smith Stadium – Bowling Green, Kentucky
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports App

Scenarios: After a season of prolific offensive production, Western Kentucky is restarting again due to the departures of quarterback Bailey Zappe and offensive coordinator Zach Kittley. This will be the first look at West Florida transfer quarterback Austin Reed, who posted eye-catching numbers at the Division II level but will now face a sharp increase in competition. Austin Peay is coming off a 6-5 season and moving from the Ohio Valley Conference to the Atlantic Sun this season

Idaho State at UNLV

Date: Saturday August 27 | Time: 3:30 p.m.
Location: Allegiant Stadium — Las Vegas, Nevada
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports App

Scenarios: UNLV enters the third season of coach Marcus Arroyo’s tenure with just a 2-16 record over the past two seasons. The Rebels should be able to progress in 2022, however, as they sack quality producers to partner with a fine transfer class. The big question is at quarterback, where Tennessee transfer Harrison Bailey and redshirt sophomore Doug Brumfield vied for the job early in the season. Idaho State is coming off a 1-10 season, and it would be a surprise if the Bengals could hang on to an FBS opponent.

Charlotte to Florida Atlantic

Date: Saturday August 27 | Time: 7 p.m.
Location: FAU Stadium – Boca Raton, Florida
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports App
Spread: FAU-7 | Will the Owls cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 0 screenings here

Scenarios: This is a battle between two Conference USA programs looking to get back to bowling games after disappointing 5-7 finishes in 2021. This should be a solid quarterback battle; Charlotte’s Chris Reynolds and FAU’s N’Kosi Perry have both made Conference USA’s list of preseason players to watch after productive campaigns in 2021.

Vanderbilt in Hawaii

Date: Saturday August 27 | Time: 10:30 p.m.
Location: Clarence TC Ching Resort – Honolulu, Hawaii
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports App
Spread: Vanderbilt-6.5 | Will the Commodores cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 0 screenings

Scenarios: Legendary former Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang begins his head coaching career with an exhibition game against Vanderbilt after spending the past 10 seasons as an assistant at various levels of college football. He appears to be facing an abrupt rebuild after an unceremonious end to Todd Graham’s tenure, which featured a massive exodus of players through the transfer portal. Vanderbilt is looking to gain ground under second-year coach Clark Lea after a 2-10 season in 2021.
