Predictions for Every College Football Game in Week 8

Trevor Knight

College football’s Week 8 slate is the official start of the second half of the season, and the action begins on Thursday night with three matchups. Miami travels to Virginia Tech for a key ACC Coastal Division matchup, while Boise State hosts BYU in a game that can certainly help boost the Broncos' overall resume for the top spot among Group of 5 teams. Three more games dot the schedule for Friday, including Oregon at California and South Florida traveling to Temple for a critical American Athletic Conference showdown. A full slate is on tap for Saturday, and the SEC takes center stage with three marquee matchups. All eyes will be on Tuscaloosa with Texas A&M taking on Alabama, but LSU-Ole Miss and Auburn-Arkansas are critical games for positioning within the SEC. Outside of the SEC, Wisconsin-Iowa, NC State-Louisville, Ohio State-Penn State, TCU-West Virginia, Utah-UCLA and Colorado-Stanford are just a handful of the key matchups to watch on Saturday.
