2015 College Football Predictions: Week 8

(AP)
Finishes like the one we saw Saturday in Ann Arbor are precisely why we love college football: you never know what to expect week by week. Can we expect any more shenanigans this week? Here are my picks for Week 8.

Tuesday, October 20th
Louisiana vs. Arkansas State - ESPN2, 8:00
Pick: Arkansas State

Thursday, October 22nd
22 Temple vs. East Carolina - ESPN2, 7:00
Pick: Temple

Georgia Southern vs. Appalachian State - ESPNU, 7:30
This probably will be the game that decides the Sun Belt. With both teams running the ball like they can, this may be a fast-moving affair. However, the Mountaineers' defense is really good and that will be the difference.
Pick: Appalachian State

20 California vs. UCLA - ESPN, 9:00
The Bruins are sliding and sliding quickly with two straight losses. Cal is coming off a bye after the road loss in Salt Lake City. The Bruins have some issues that they need to sort out right now and I think Cal will take advantage.
Pick: California

Friday, October 23rd
18 Memphis vs. Tulsa - ESPN, 8:00
Memphis is certainly better than Tulsa, but could this be a vintage trap game for the Rebels? Look for the Golden Hurricane to keep this one close into the final quarter.
Pick: Memphis

Utah State vs. San Diego State - ESPN2, 10:30
Pick: Utah State

Saturday, October 24th
21 Houston vs. UCF - ESPNEWS, 12:00
Pick: Houston

Southern Miss vs. Charlotte - ASN, 12:00
Pick: Southern Miss

Kansas State vs. Texas - FS1, 12:00
Picking K-State to upset Oklahoma definitely was a bad call. They're better than they showed but I think Texas may have found something in the Oklahoma upset.
Pick: Texas

NC State vs. Wake Forest - Fox Sports Networks (ACC),
Pick: NC State

25 Pittsburgh vs. Syracuse - ESPNU, 12:00
Pick: Pittsburgh

Northwestern vs. Nebraska - ESPN2, 12:00
So I have whiffed twice on Northwestern in a row, which is probably a sign.
Pick: Nebraska

Army vs. Rice - Fox Sports Networks, 12:00
Pick: Rice

Iowa State vs. 2 Baylor - ESPN, 12:00
Pick: Baylor

Auburn vs. Arkansas - SEC Network, 12:00
Talk about a disappointing matchup.
Pick: Auburn

Could an upset like this save Al Golden at this point? No.

The Rebels are due for a big bounce-back after the road upset at Memphis. Look for them to get it done.
