Another completely full schedule of Week 6 games is already underway on CBS Sports Network with five contests during what could be a defining weekend. The action got started Friday night as Charlotte defeated host FIU 45-33 in Conference USA action , and Saturday brings an all-day sampling of four games involving teams from several conferences.
The opener on Saturday is a MAC showdown between Toledo and Northern Illinois, both unbeaten in MAC play, that could have implications in the league title race. In the afternoon, No. 24 SMU will take on Navy's option as the Midshipmen seek to parlay the momentum of an upset over UCF last week into a date with the undefeated Mustangs.
Then, in the evening, the action heads west as two of the Mountain West's top teams, Air Force and Wyoming, face off in a battle of teams that are a combined 8-1. Finally, the late-night crowd will see an NFL Draft prospect at quarterback in Nevada's Carson Strong as the Wolf Pack host New Mexico State.
Here is the full rundown of all the Week 6 action on CBS Sports Network with all times Eastern.
New Mexico State vs. Nevada
Storylines: Nevada snapped a six-game losing streak against Boise State last week, winning on the road to jumpstart its Mountain West schedule. Now, the Wolf Pack will go back out of conference to host New Mexico State. A victory would improve Nevada to 4-1, but New Mexico State demonstrated improvement last week while taking quality Mountain West foe San Jose State down to the wire before losing 37-31. The Aggies are 1-5, and their only victory came against South Carolina State of the FCS, but quarterback Jonah Johnson played the best game of his career against San Jose State. The quarterback battle of Johnson vs. Nevada's Carson Strong should be a good one.
