    This week’s college football picks and previews are hot off the press.


    Week 8 of the college football season brings us a rivalry game in Tuscaloosa, a top 25 matchup in Oxford, and a chance for the Utah Utes to make another statement on their way to a possible College Football Playoff spot.

    The Alabama-Tennessee rivalry has been dominated by the Crimson Tide lately, winning the last eight meetings. Alabama is led by running back Derrick Henry, who has rushed for 901 yards and 12 TDs so far this season.

    In Oxford, the Ole Miss Rebels will try to stay in control of their SEC destiny as they host the explosive Texas A&M Aggies. Both teams are looking to make their first-ever trip to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta.

    The Utah Utes will try to stay undefeated and make another case of why they belong in the College Football Playoff as they travel to Los Angeles to take on USC. The Trojans’ season has been full of turmoil, as a couple of early losses and dismissal of coach Steve Sarkisian have left USC fans asking what happened.

    The complete schedule is listed below, as well as the Week 8 college football picks. To view the full preview and prediction for each game, click on the respective matchup.
