College Football Week 8 Sees Top Teams Winning Again

The top teams in the country picked up wins again in College Football on Saturday. The lone losses came against other top-ranked teams, so the Associated Press Top 25 poll is going to look pretty close to the same at the top.

Let’s look at some of the best games of the week.

Ohio State Tops Penn State

In a low-scoring game, the Ohio State Buckeyes beat the Penn State Nittany Lions at home. Both teams came into the game with unbeaten records, but the Buckeyes defense was too much for the Nittany Lions.

Miyan Williams and Marvin Harrison were great for the Buckeyes with a combined 224 yards in the game. Harrison caught a big touchdown late in the game to put the Buckeyes up two scores in the game.

Oklahoma Sooners Survive Central Florida

The Oklahoma Sooners stayed unbeaten, but barely. The Sooners beat Central Florida 31-29 on Saturday. The Knights scored late but could not convert the two-point conversion.

For Oklahoma, it was a revenge game for Dillon Gabriel, who went 25 of 38 for 253 yards and three touchdowns in the game.

Alabama Storms By Tennessee

It was a slow start for the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tennessee Volunteers led 20-7 at halftime, but it was an entirely different second half. The Crimson Tide scored 17 in the third and 10 in the fourth and beat the Volunteers 34-20.

Jalen Milroe went 14 of 21 for 220 yards and two touchdowns in the game. The Crimson Tide also saw running back Jase McClellan run the ball 27 times for 115 yards and a touchdown as well.

Virginia Upsets North Carolina

In the odd score of the week, the Virginia Cavaliers won just their second game of the series. The Cavaliers scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter and shut the Tar Heels offense down, and won the game 31-27.

It was the first loss of the season for the Tar Heels and likely booted them out of the College Football playoff contention.

Florida State Remains Unbeaten

The Florida State Seminoles remained unbeaten with a 38-20 win over the Duke Blue Devils. It was not an easy one, as Duke led 20-17 after three quarters. Florida State took over in the fourth quarter and scored three touchdowns to win the game 38-20.

Jordan Travis continues to shine, as he threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns in the game. Keon Coleman was held in check a little in the game with just two receptions.

Michigan Wins Rivalry Game in Blowout

The Michigan State Spartans have been horrific this season. But, in one big rivalry game, the Spartans could have put in a scare in their rival Michigan Wolverines, but that did not happen.

The Wolverines scored two touchdowns in each of the first three quarters and went on to win the game 49-0. Michigan State threw for just 133 yards in the game.

USC Loses Second Straight Game

The USC Trojans lost their second straight game. A week after getting smacked by Notre Dame, the Utah Utes beat them 34-32. The Trojans scored ten straight points to take a 32-31 lead with just under 2:00 to go in the game. Utah used a big fourth down conversion late in the game and kicked a game-winning field goal to win 34-32.

Look Ahead at Week 8

When we get to Week 9 next week, some more great action will take place. Here are some of the best games of the week:

The Oklahoma Sooners will look to stay unbeaten as they go on the road to Kansas to battle the Jayhawks. The Florida State Seminoles are also looking to stay unbeaten, as they are also on the road. The Seminoles will play at Wake Forest. Speaking of unbeaten, the top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs will play a road game at Florida Gators.

One of the best games of the day will take place in the Pac-12. The Oregon Ducks will take on the Utah Utes. The Utes won a big one on the road at the USC Trojans and are now right in the mix to reach the Pac-12 title game.

Some other big games include:

  • Brigham Young at Texas
  • Tennessee at Kentucky
  • Ohio State at Wisconsin
  • Colorado at UCLA
  • Oregon State at Arizona
