UNLV vs. Idaho State live stream online, channel, prediction, how to watch on CBS Sports Network

Finally, the 2022 college football season is here, and Saturday’s Week 0 schedule brings a nice appetizer for what lies ahead in the coming months. Four of Saturday’s 11 games involving Football Bowl Subdivision teams in Week 0 air on CBS Sports Network in an all-day viewing experience that runs through Sunday morning for viewers at some time zones.

The action kicks off at noon ET when the FBS season kicks off in Bowling Green, Kentucky as Western Kentucky hosts Austin Peay. Then, UNLV kicks off the third year of the Marcus Arroyo era by hosting Idaho State at 3:30 pm before the evening’s schedule brings a pair of FBS vs. FBS matchups.

Conference USA teams Charlotte and Florida Atlantic waste no time in livening up league play as the two meet in Boca Raton at 7 p.m. in a battle of teams looking to bounce back from 5-7 seasons. Finally, the night cup pits an SEC team against a transition program as Vanderbilt plays in Hawaii at 10:30 p.m. The Commodores hope they’ve overcome jet lag from a long flight as they take on a team from Rainbow Warriors playing his first game under new coach and great program, Timmy Chang.

Here’s the full rundown of all the action from Week 0 on CBS Sports Network. All Eastern times.

Idaho State at UNLV

Date: Saturday August 27 | Weather: 3:30 pm
Location: Allegiant Stadium – Las Vegas, Nevada
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Live broadcast: | Mobile: CBS Sports App

Arguments: UNLV begins the third season of coach Marcus Arroyo’s tenure with just a 2-16 record over the past two seasons. However, the Rebels should be able to move forward in 2022 as some quality producers return to pair with a good transfer class. The big question is quarterback, where Tennessee transfer Harrison Bailey and redshirt sophomore Doug Brumfield have been vying for the job entering the season. Idaho State is coming off a 1-10 season, and it would be a surprise if the Bengals can hang out with an FBS opponent.

Charlotte in Atlantic Florida

Date: Saturday August 27 | Weather: 19:00
Location: FAU Stadium – Boca Raton, Florida
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Live broadcast: | Mobile: CBS Sports App
Spread: FAU-7 | Will the Owls cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 0 showings here

Arguments: This is a battle between two Conference USA programs looking to get back into bowling after disappointing 5-7 finishes in 2021. This should be a solid quarterback battle; Both Charlotte’s Chris Reynolds and FAU’s N’Kosi Perry made the Conference USA preseason Players to Watch list after productive 2021 campaigns.

Vanderbilt in Hawaii

Date: Saturday August 27 | Weather: 10:30 pm
Location: Clarence TC Ching Complex – Honolulu, Hawaii
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Live broadcast: | Mobile: CBS Sports App
Spread: Vanderbilt-6.5 | Will the Commodores cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 0 showings

Arguments: 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 saw a mass exodus of players through the transfer portal. Vanderbilt is looking for traction under second-year coach Clark Lea after a 2-10 season in 2021.
