So if you're wondering "What college football games are on today?" know this: There are four involving FBS teams scheduled for today, Friday, Oct. 22.

Note: All times are ET.

Middle Tennessee at UConn, 6 p.m. on CBSSN

Both of these teams have struggled this season so Friday night represents an opportunity to pick up a much-needed win. It also is a matchup of two of the nation's worst offenses against equally bad defenses so it will be interesting to see which side of the ball for either team rises to the occasion.

Memphis at UCF, 7 p.m. on ESPN2

Typically in the thick of the race in the American Athletic Conference, both Memphis and UCF enter this game in unfamiliar territory. The winner of this game improves to .500 in the conference and the loser misses a shot at taking another step towards bowl eligibility. The Knights are typically tough to beat in the Bounce House but these Tigers are bringing plenty of offensive firepower to Orlando.

Colorado State at Utah State, 9:30 p.m. on CBSSN

Even though Colorado State is 3-3 overall, the Rams are currently leading the Mountain West Mountain Division with a 2-0 mark. Utah State has a conference game (and a loss) in hand, which is why this game with CSU is so critical, especially since it's in Logan. With Boise State struggling mightily, a clear opportunity has opened up for another team to claim the division. So will it be the Aggies or the Rams that make a statement on Friday night?

Washington at Arizona, 10:30 p.m. on ESPN2

It's been a rough couple of seasons for Arizona and it's probably only going to get worse for first-year head coach Jedd Fisch before it gets better. Washington is struggling as well but the Pac-12 North standings are pretty crowded so the Huskies haven't been eliminated from the divisional race just yet. This sets up as a get-right game for Washington, unless the Wildcats have something else in mind.
