Week 8 saw a couple of more undefeated teams (Coastal Carolina and Oklahoma State) bite the dust and playoff projections continue to develop as we head down the home stretch of the 2021 season. We went a mediocre 23-11 last week and are now 212-66 (76%) after eight weeks into the season. We hit the Lock of the Week to run our record to 6-2, but Wisconsin beat Purdue and our upset special went down, dropping our record to 7-3 in that category. Here are our win predictions in week 8 for the Top-25 and other interesting matchups. Keep in mind, these are straight up wins not involving the point spreads.
