College Football Free Predictions & Previews from Winners & Whiners: Week 8

College Football was shaken up last week due to losses by four top 10 teams with Georgia getting crushed at LSU, West Virginia falling at Iowa State, Penn State losing at home to Michigan State and Washington falling at Oregon in overtime. In Week 8, undefeated Cincinnati takes on Temple, Michigan faces rival Michigan State, undefeated NC State meets undefeated Clemson, and Oregon takes on Washington State from Pullman.

*Cincinnati may not be a Power Five team, but they certainly have a Power 5 offense. Freshman quarterback Desmond Ridder has really started to come on leading the Bearcats to an average of 43.2 points over their last four games. They face a Temple team that is also led by a young quarterback in Anthony Russo. He led the Owls over Navy and a 4-3 record overall. Go with Cincinnati and the road chalk.

*Michigan is coming off their most impressive win of the season, a 38-13 home win over Wisconsin. Shea Patterson threw for just 124 yards but ran for a season-high 90 yards with one TD. Michigan State is coming off an even more impressive victory over Penn State on the road. The Spartans won the game on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Brian Lewerke to Felton Davis with 19 seconds left to win 21-17. Take the Wolverines to get revenge.

*NC State is attempting to beat an AP Top 5 for the first time since 2012 when they take on Clemson. The Wolfpack have held opponents to just 16.8 points per game and have forced eight turnovers. Clemson has won 11 straight at home and moved up to third in the nation despite coming off a bye last week. In their last game, they hammered Wake Forest, 63-3 led by three runners with at least 128 rushing yards. Take the road dog in this one and go with NC State.

*No 12 Oregon looks to avoid a letdown after beating Washington last week at home in overtime. Star QB Justin Herbert threw for 202 yards, while freshman running back CJ Verdell ran for 111 yards. Washington State is 5-1 and coming off a 56-37 win over Oregon State. QB Gardner Minshew threw for 430 yards and five TDs to lead the Cougars. Take the home dog and Washington State.
