Predicting CFP rankings after Week 8: Three new teams enter the top 25

There were two top-10 teams that lost on Saturday: UCLA and Mississippi.

The Oregon Ducks looked like a legit offense on Saturday after putting up 45 points on the previously unbeaten Bruins.

Quarterback Bo Nix threw five touchdown passes and looked pretty flawless.

Brian Kelly gained his first signature win coaching LSU, beating Ole Miss by 25 points.

Jayden Daniels, the Tigers quarterback, not only threw two touchdowns, but also ran the ball for 121 yards and scored three times on the ground.

A few of the top teams continued their winning ways.

The Buckeyes continue to dominate, while it may have taken a while for the offense to get going.

Ohio State — with the help of Spencer Petras and the Iowa offense — scored 54 points against the Hawkeyes.

Clemson survived a scare against a good Syracuse team, and Alabama defeated Mississippi State Saturday evening.
