College Football Week 8 features 31 games that we'll be picking this week. Thursday night features two games involving Power Five conference teams: Miami and Virginia Tech both look to bounce back from big Week 7 losses, while No. 14 Boise State hosts BYU in a fun Group of 5 game. On Friday, we have a Cal-Oregon game that should feature plenty of points, and little defense. The SEC dominates the big Saturday games. Alabama-Texas A&M highlights the week, but Auburn-Arkansas and LSU-Ole Miss are also very big match-ups for the league.

Here are our staff picks for every Power Five and Top 25 game for College Football Week 8.
