The big games of previous weeks have fled the schedule – they’re just not there. Some of tonight's games this week 8 were supposed to be big, but they just haven’t turned out that way.

Florida State Seminoles vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Odds: Florida State -6
This is a game in which the Yellow Jackets are the desperate underdog instead of the favorite. Yet, if you had asked various people who cover college football what this game was going to be like before the season started, you probably would have gotten the idea that Georgia Tech was going to be favored here. A lot has changed in almost two months. Georgia Tech, the defending Orange Bowl champion and ACC runner-up, has seen its whole roster implode. No one has played as well as last season. The veteran offensive line has regressed, and so have younger skill position players who were filling in for last season’s stars. The defense has not been reasonably effective – no one was expecting this defense to dominate, but it is failing to make a minimal amount of important plays in key situations. With Georgia Tech failing across the board and proving to be unable to fix its problems, it’s very hard to pick the Yellow Jackets against a Florida State team which has not lost a regular season game since the 2012 season. It’s incredibly impressive what coach Jimbo Fisher has done in Tallahassee, and with his track record at Florida State, it’s extremely hard to pick against the Seminoles here. Florida State will win and cover the College Football Odds.

Colorado Buffaloes vs. Oregon State Beavers
Odds: Oregon State -2
The key point to make here is that Colorado is playing teams tough in the Pac-12, even though it is still losing games. The Buffaloes challenged Oregon a few weeks ago before fading late, and they almost beat Arizona last Saturday in what was a very tough game for all 60 minutes. Oregon State has not shown as much staying power as Arizona. The Beavers have been less competitive in most of their Pac-12 games, and that’s something a bettor will notice. Colorado should probably be the two-point favorite instead of Oregon State. This line offers great value if you are inclined to take the Buffs with your College Football Picks, which you should.

Wyoming Cowboys vs. Boise State Broncos
Odds:  Boise State -35
It’s going to be a slaughter in Boise. The Broncos, who committed eight turnovers last week in a horrible loss at Utah State, are going to be extremely angry, extremely focused, and very much committed to making sure that another debacle like that doesn’t happen again. Boise State should play a great game, and Wyoming is one of the worst college football teams in the nation. It’s a recipe for a 50-point rout. Take Boise State here.
