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

Delaware vs. Navy

Date: Saturday September 3 | Time: Midday
Location: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium — Annapolis, Maryland
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: | Mobile: CBS Sports App

Scenarios: Navy is just 7-15 the past two seasons, having failed to bowl in consecutive years since the 2001 and 2002 campaigns. Consecutive years have dulled expectations for the contenders, who were selected 10th out of 11 teams in the AAC’s preseason media poll. Delaware finished 5-6 last season, but the Blue Hens were competitive against a series of FCS ranked opponents and have a history to build on in this game after upsetting Navy 59-52 in 2007.

No. 24 Houston vs. UTSA

Date: Saturday September 3 | Time: 3:30 p.m.
Location: Alamodome – San Antonio, TX
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: | Mobile: CBS Sports App
Spread: Houston-4 | Will the Commodores cover? Check SportsLine Week 1 Screenings

Scenarios: The third meeting between these enemies in the state comes in the form of a battle between preseason conference favorites. Houston narrowly edged Cincinnati and UCF in the AAC media poll and UTSA edged out UAB as Conference USA favorites. Both teams finished 12-2 last season and are entering their final season in their current conferences before moving on to more prestigious leagues in 2023. This should be a particularly strong quarterback game; Houston’s Clayton Tune and UTSA’s Frank Harris are both proven veterans looking to build breakout 2021 seasons.

SMU vs. North Texas

Date: Saturday September 3 | Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Apogee Stadium – Denton, TX
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: | Mobile: CBS Sports App
Spread: SMU-10.5 | Will the Commodores cover? Check SportsLine Week 1 Screenings

Scenarios: This will be the ninth straight year that SMU and North Texas have played, and the Mean Green will be looking to use their home court advantage to pick up another win. North Texas’ two wins since the series was renewed in 2014 have come at home, with the last win coming in 2018. The Mustangs have won three straight but are entering a new head coach in Rhett Lashlee, who has spent the last two seasons as Miami’s offensive coordinator after serving in the same position at SMU in 2018 and 2019. Both teams are chosen to finish in the top half of their respective conferences.
