It’s time to return a field goal to the house and overreact to the biggest moments from Week 8 of college football.
Week 8 of the college football season was the first shoe to drop on what should be a wild month that will lead directly into bowl season. A projected playoff team went down, coaches lost their cool on the field and teams increased their chances of getting into the big dance.
With a big Week 8 finished, it’s time to overreact to what happened on the field. Things are beginning to get serious and some things have become abundantly clear. Some more than others. Here are five overreactions after Week 8.
5. Boise State shouldn’t make the playoff if they go undefeated
Every year, there is the prevailing thought that an undefeated team from a non-power five conference could make the College Football Playoff. All eyes were on Houston this year, as they had the perfect schedule to do it.
Houston eventually gave way and then eyes shifted to the Boise State Broncos. The team is currently undefeated and there’s a strong chance they win out with a weaker schedule. However, while they are a great team they have not played anyone worthy of making them a playoff caliber team.
Should they go undefeated, then they should be given a spot in a New Year’s Six bowl. They didn’t schedule any big schools and that’s likely going to keep them on the outside looking in when the playoff committee makes their decision.
