College Football 2012: Predictions for Every Week 8 Top 25 Game

Predictions for Every Week 8 Top 25 Game

10/18/12 in NCAAF   |   Tyler_Waddell   |   426 respect

The first BCS Standings released on Sunday night give us a slight leeway on the potential national championship picture. An understanding that a team from either the SEC or Big 12 — or both — will more than likely represent as the two best teams in the nation, as more than half (14) make up the rankings.Blog Photo - College Football 2012: Predictions for Every Week 8 Top 25 Game

However, the current standings could undergo some major changes following this weekend. We have four games that feature two ranked opponents battling each other, including a top 10 showdown.

Fasten your seatbelt. You're in for one bumpy ride the next seven weeks.

I just can't see how West Virginia can beat a team like K-State after getting embarrassed against Texas Tech. If you don't have the personnel to defend, scheme can only do so much. Clearly WVU has focused on offense when it comes to recruiting. If they win this game against K-State by some chance, the final score is more likely to be 56-49. Only problem with that is, you have to consider if Texas Tech can shutdown WVU's offense--so can K-State.
