This weekend, College Football reaches week 8. Only a few teams remained unbeaten, and others are on a downhill trek. Here are my week 8 picks. Auburn vs. Arkansas
After losing a tough game last week to LSU, I look for Auburn to bounce back with a big win at Arkansas.
Kansas vs. TCU
After struggling through the first few games of the season, TCU has been on a tear lately. They are currently ranked #4 in the nation with a record of 6-0. Look for TCU to blow out Kansas.
Louisville vs. Florida State
Neither team is outstanding here, but Florida State’s early struggles and week 7 loss to Miami at home makes Louisville, and reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Lamar Jackson, the favorite to win this game.
LSU vs. Ole Miss
With Ed Orgeron on the hot-seat, LSU is out to make a statement. Look for the Tigers of LSU to surprise the nation with a blowout win at Ole Miss.
Michigan vs. Penn State
With Michigan’s recent loss to state-rival Michigan State, look for them to knock off #2 Penn State this Saturday.
Oklahoma vs. Kansas State
Sorry Coach Trivette, but the #9 ranked Oklahoma Sooners are just too much for Kansas State to handle. Look for Baker Mayfeild and Oklahoma’s powerhouse offense to pick apart Kansas State’s defense.
Syracuse vs. Miami
Although Syracuse just recently knocked off recent ranked #2 Clemson, I believe Miami is riding the hot hand right now and will have no problem beating Syracuse.
Tennessee vs. Alabama
We all know that Tide is rolling. Look for Alabama to blow out Tennessee this weekend.
USC vs. Notre Dame
After losing a tough game to #3 Georgia early in the season, #13 Notre Dame is looking for redemption. Look for Notre Dame to beat USC this weekend.
Wake Forest vs. Georgia Tech
After handing Florida State all they could handle a few weeks ago, Wake Forest is the favorite to win this game. Never count Tech out though, their offense is a force to be reckoned with.
These are my Week 8 picks, come back next week for my next set of weekend favorites.
