College football schedule, 2022 games: What to watch in Week 4, TV channels, Saturday kickoffs - CBS Sports

The final Saturday of September is upon us, which means massive conference parties litter the Week 4 college football slate. No. 20 Florida will head to Rocky Top to face #11 Tennessee in the SEC on CBS Game of the Week in a massive SEC East rivalry that will go a long way to determine the state of the reconstruction process for both teams.

Elsewhere, No. 5 Clemson will hit the road to take #21 Wake Forest at high noon ET. The Tigers haven’t exactly been impressive through three games, but a win over the Demon Deacons would be a sure sign that Dabo Swinney’s crew can fight back.

A late night SEC West battle between #10 Arkansas and No. 23 Texas A&M will kick off in the evening, just as cross-division Big Ten tilts between Wisconsin and No. 3 Ohio State.

It’s going to be a busy Saturday across the country. Here’s a handy spectator’s guide to help you navigate the action. Always eastern.

The best games

No. 5 Clemson at No. 21 Wake Forest — noon on ABC, fuboTV (Try for free): This key ACC-Atlantic match will be a fascinating contract of styles. The Tigers’ defense — especially up front — is loaded, while the Demon Deacons’ up-tempo, slow-mesh offense is as dangerous as any in college football. The winner of this one will have a massive advantage in the race for the division title.

No. 20 Florida at No. 11 Tennessee — 3:30 pm on CBS, CBSSports.com, CBS Sports App: The rivalry actually means something this year, which is great not just for the SEC, but for the entire college football world. Gators quarterback Anthony Richardson has struggled through the air, but that may have to change if this turns into a shootout and he has to keep up with the up-tempo Volunteers offense led by Heisman Trophy candidate Hendon Hooker under center.

No. 22 Texas at Texas Tech — 3:30 pm on ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free): This key in-state battle is already a big deal in the race for the Big 12 title, but that intrigue grew a notch Thursday when it was learned that star quarterback Quinn Ewers — who was injured in the loss to alabama in Week 2 — will make the trip to Lubbock, Texas, and get dressed. Ewers looked great against the Crimson Tide before his shoulder injury, and it will be interesting to see how coach Steve Sarkisian uses him if he does see the field.

#10 Arkansas vs. #23 Texas A&M (in Arlington, Texas) — 7 p.m. on ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free): This showdown at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is loaded with intrigue. The Razorbacks have the worst pass defense in the country (352.7 yards per game), while the Aggies pass offense has been mediocre at best. The loser of this will fight up in the SEC West for the rest of the season.

Wisconsin at No. 3 Ohio State — 7:30 pm on ABC, fuboTV (Try for free): This will be a contrast of styles between two Big Ten powers within the Horseshoe. The Buckeyes boast a terrific passing offense under Heisman contender CJ Stroud, and the Badgers are built to own the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Ohio State’s defensive front was a concern coming into the season, and this will be its biggest test of the young season.

No. 7 USC at Oregon State — 9:30 p.m. on Pac-12 Network, fuboTV (Try for free): The high-flying Trojan offense will head to Corvallis, Oregon, where it will face a Beavers team that has very quietly gone 3-0 and produced the Pac-12’s second-best offense. If the Trojans’ defense is able to step up, it could be the signal that coach Lincoln Riley’s team is truly “back.”

Best of the rest
