Clemson is an underdog at home to Florida State, half of the Ole Miss defense is nursing some kind of injury, and we have no idea what to expect from Georgia and Missouri after the Tigers' win in Athens last week.

Did we mention that the Pac-12 has a pair of potentially classic games this weekend with UCLA-Stanford and Washington-Arizona State?

The slate is loaded, so stop reading and start listening to the logic (or lack thereof) behind the CBS Sports Expert Picks. Tom Fornelli and Jerry Hinnen join me to break down 14 of the biggest games ahead in Week 8. Take my picks with a grain of salt, since I fell below .500 last week and only rank ahead of Jeremy Fowler in the standings. Tom and Jerry, on the other hand, sit within two games of our leader, Dennis Dodd.

Games previewed (in order of appearance):

Florida State at Clemson (+3.5)

LSU at Ole Miss (+7.5)

Auburn at Texas A&M (-13.5)

Georgia at Vanderbilt (+8.5)

Florida at Missouri (+2.5)

UCLA at Stanford (-5.5)

Washington at Arizona State (-3.5)

Iowa at Ohio State (-16.5)

Wisconsin at Illinois (+10.5)

USC at Notre Dame (-3)

Iowa State at Baylor (-31.5)

Arkansas at Alabama (-28.5)

South Carolina at Tennessee (+7.5)

Washington State at Oregon (-38.5)

We had a great response to our Midseason Awards debate show, so I wanted to remind you that we are building up to the unveiling of the All-America team and final postseason awards in coordination with CBS Sports Network on Dec. 17.
