College football schedule, games 2022: What to watch in Week 4, TV channels, Saturday kickoff times

The last Saturday of September is upon us, which means massive conference games litter the college football slate in Week 4. Florida’s No. 20 will travel to Rocky Top to face Tennessee’s No. 11 in the SEC on CBS Game of the Week in a massive SEC East rivalry that will go a long way in determining the state of the rebuilding process for both teams.

Elsewhere, No. 5 Clemson will hit the road to face No. 21 Wake Forest at noon ET. The Tigers haven’t exactly been impressive in three games, but a win over the Demon Deacons would be a surefire signal that Dabo Swinney’s side can face off.

A late-night SEC West battle between No. 10 Arkansas and No. 23 Texas A&M will begin in the evening, as will a Big Ten interdivisional tilt between Wisconsin and No. 3 Ohio State.

It will be a busy Saturday across the country. Here’s a handy viewing guide to help you navigate the action. All times Eastern.

The best games

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

No. 20 Florida at No. 11 Tennessee – 3:30 p.m. on CBS,, CBS Sports App: The rivalry actually means something this year that’s great not just for the SEC, but for the entire college football world. Gators quarterback Anthony Richardson has struggled in the air, but that may have to change if it turns into a shootout and he needs to keep pace with the Volunteers offense led by Heisman Trophy contender Hendon Hooker under center.

No. 22 Texas at Texas Tech – 3:30 p.m. on ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free): This pivotal battle in the state is already a big deal in the Big 12 title race, but that intrigue kicked up a notch on Thursday when news broke that star quarterback Quinn Ewers – who was injured in the loss to Alabama in Week 2 — will make the trip in 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 sees the pitch.

No. 10 Arkansas vs. No. 23 Texas A&M (at Arlington, Texas) – 7 p.m. on ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free): This showdown at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas is full of intrigue. The Razorbacks have the worst pass defense in the nation (352.7 yards per game), while the Aggies’ passing offense has been mediocre at best. The loser of this one will fight an uphill battle in SEC West for the rest of the season.

Wisconsin at No. 3 Ohio State – 7:30 p.m. on ABC, fuboTV (Try for free): It will be a contrast of styles between two Big Ten powerhouses inside the Horseshoe. The Buckeyes boast a formidable passing offense under Heisman competitor 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 heading 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 the Pac-12 Network, fuboTV (Try for free): The Trojans’ top-flight offense will travel to Corvallis, Oregon, where they will face a Beavers team that quietly went 3-0 and produced the second-best offense in the Pac-12. If the Trojans’ defense is able to tighten up, it could be a signal that coach Lincoln Riley’s team is truly “back.”
