Hard to believe but we are already on Week 8 of the 2018 college football regular season. We are more than halfway done and things are really starting to get interesting.

I’ve put together a full betting schedule (below), which list the start times, TV listings, opening line, current spread and total for each matchup. Our staff will also be previewing a number of the games and giving out an early betting lean. Links to each preview will be included in the tables below.

Week 8 College Football Preview Schedule & Betting Odds

Week 7 was absolutely nuts, which continued a trend from Week 6, when we saw five teams in the Top 15 go down. This past Saturday there were eight Top 25 teams that lost, including four teams in the Top 10.

The highest ranked team to fall was No. 2 Georgia, who got routed 36-16 by No. 13 LSU. No. 6 West Virginia got annihilated 30-14 at unranked Iowa State, No. 7 Washington lost in OT at No. 17 Oregon and No. 8 Penn State lost at home 21-17 to unranked Michigan State. There was nearly three more, as No. 5 Notre Dame needed a late score to take down Pitt 19-14 at home, No. 9 Texas held on for a 23-17 win at home over Baylor and No. 10 UCF rallied from 16 down in the 2nd half to stun Memphis 31-30.

The two outside the Top 10 that really had to surprise people is No. 16 Miami losing at Virginia and No. 21 Auburn losing at home to Tennessee. The two a lot of people saw coming is No. 15 Wisconsin losing at No. 12 Michigan and No. 19 Colorado falling at USC (Trojans favored by 7).

Don’t think for a second that the upsets are done. Several top teams have some difficult matchups looming this Saturday. There’s four that feature two Top 25 teams against each other. You got No. 6 Michigan on the road against in-state rival No. 24 Michigan Staten No. 3 Clemson has to host undefeated No. 16 NC State, No. 5 LSU hosts No. 22 Mississippi State and No. 12 Oregon travels to Pullman to take on No. 25 Washington State.

Other intriguing matchups include No. 9 Oklahoma on the road against TCU, No. 15 Washington hosting Colorado, No. 18 Penn State at Indiana and No. 2 Ohio State at Purdue.
