CBS College Sports Network will kick off its first full Saturday of college football coverage on Sept. 12 with a quadruple-header.

Beginning at noon (ET), Duke will visit Army, followed by Louisiana Tech at Navy at 3:30 p.m. On Saturday night, CBS College Sports Network will present Kansas at UTEP at 7:30 p.m., with Oregon State-UNLV, the nightcap at 11 p.m.
