College Football Podcast: The Week 8 Preview


Athlon Sports' Braden Gall and Mitch Light preview Week 8 in college football.

- Texas A&M and Alabama go head-to-head in a Top 10 showdown of unbeatens. But should the Aggies even show up? 

- Two other ranked matchups make the SEC West the focus of Week 8 nationally.

- Wisconsin visits Iowa while Ohio State heads to Happy Valley in the Big Ten.

- What would a win over TCU do for West Virginia's credibility? Is Oklahoma-Texas Tech or Texas-Kansas State the more intriguing game?

- And, as usual, the Pac-12 offers up an awesome slate of games once again. Utah, Washington State, Colorado and Oregon all have difficult road tests ahead of them this weekend.

Each week, we go head-to-head with our top picks against the spread.

Picks Against the Spread Standings:

1. Mitch: 15-19-1 (2-4 LW)

2. Braden: 13-21-1 (2-3 LW)
