College Football Schedule This Week | 2022 Week 8
Level up your school spirit with CableTV.com’s weekly college football schedule, featuring channel listings for this week’s top matchups.
The various college football poll rankings significantly reshuffled after last week’s results. We expected this—mainly because several top 25 teams had formidable foes lined up in Week 7. But even we didn’t predict some of the wild outcomes that lit up social media over the weekend.
Now that it’s Week 8, the fight for a clear College Football Playoff picture is accelerating. Many enticing regular-season fixtures still lie ahead, so keep scrolling for a detailed look at what the Week 8 schedule offers.
CableTV.com’s Game of the Week
Syracuse at Clemson | ABC
Syracuse and Clemson are the only two teams that remain undefeated in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). But that’s all about to change as both sides go head-to-head this Saturday in South Carolina.
Clemson is the favored team to win, and they currently hold a four-game win streak against Syracuse. However, last season’s matchup was close, with Clemson narrowly winning 17–14.
So far this season, Syracuse is turning heads. They’ve defeated Purdue and NC State—already besting their overall win record from last year. But Clemson will be their toughest opponent yet, and it will take much grit for Syracuse to dismantle the Tigers’ home record.
Other college football games to watch
UCLA at Oregon | FOX
Another great conference matchup this weekend is the UCLA Bruins vs. the Oregon Ducks. Both teams had Week 7 off and head into Week 8 undefeated in Pac-12 Conference play. While Oregon did experience a massive loss in Week 1 against the Georgia Bulldogs, the team has since turned things around. But they’ll need to be in top form to defeat the Bruins, who currently maintain a clean record in their best start to the season since 2005.
Kansas State at TCU | FOX Sports 1 (FS1)
Last week, the TCU Horned Frogs stunned the Oklahoma State Cowboys in a thrilling game that went to double overtime. Now they’ll face another Big 12 Conference rival: the Kansas State Wildcats.
Like our other Game of the Week recommendations, the Kansas State-TCU matchup features two undefeated teams. Both the Horned Frogs and the Wildcats have avoided defeat in conference play. But Kansas State lost against the Tulane Green Wave last month, which makes us think TCU has the advantage in this fixture.
