Top Week 8 college football expert predictions

One of Sallee’s top college football picks for Week 8: He’s backing No. 8 Oklahoma State (+7) at Iowa State in a 3:30 p.m. ET matchup on Saturday.

It’s an unusual line with the undefeated top-10 team getting a touchdown and extra point against an unranked squad. Sallee sees this game being lower-scoring and he’s happily grabbing the points with the ranked underdog in this spot. 

“These teams play a very similar brand of football — rely on defense, force turnovers and run the ball,” Sallee told SportsLine. “The world already knows about Cyclones star running back Breece Hall, but Cowboys running back Jaylen Warren is third in the Big 12 in rushing at 117.5 yards per game. This game has all of the makings of an old-school slugfest. A full touchdown spread seems a bit aggressive here.”
