It's Week 8 of the 2019 college football season and FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd is making his weekly Marquee 3 picks for the weekend's biggest games. This week the host of The Herd is picking from Florida/South Carolina, Oregon/Washington, and Michigan Penn State.
Here's what Colin had to say on each of this week's games:
On Florida vs. South Carolina:
"I'll take Florida minus-five to win big.
...South Carolina beat Georgia but if you look at the numbers they were totally dominated in that game... The difference is Georgia kept turning the ball over.
...Florida's defense is also the better one in this game. This year in the SEC... second in points allowed, first in takeaways, first in sacks...
...I like them to win and win comfortably. Florida 30-20 over South Carolina."
On Oregon vs. Washington:
"Huskies (plus-three) at home. I'll take them and the field goal.
...Oregon in their last four years against ranked teams? They have not been a step up program - they're 3-9.
...(Washington's) Jacob Eason is a first-round NFL quarterback, so both teams have a great quarterback.
...Eason has been great at Huskie Stadium, completing 67-percent of his throws - 7 TDs, 1 pick.
...I like the coaching staff of Washington. The Huskies with the upset 24-23. I think they just win the game outright. I think the Huskies are gonna win a narrow football game."
On Michigan vs. Penn State:
“I’m done with Harbaugh’s crappy offense.
...The home team has won this matchup the last three times by 25-plus points.
...Harbaugh, as an underdog, (has) never won at Michigan. In fact, Michigan is 1-19 in their last 20 against top 10, including 11 straight (losses) on the road
...I got Penn State winning this game. I think that (Penn State) defense pretty much stomps Michigan 28-14.”
