Week 8 football picks

Each week during the football season, Sports Editor Mark Podolski will pick NFL, college and high school games.

I've hit a new low, going 0-4-1 last week. The season mark is at a woeful 11-23-1. Good thing no money is on the line. How pathetic, but the beat goes on:


South at Riverside, Friday: There's no doubt Kareem Hunt's teammates wants to get their buddy the Mr. Football award. The Rebels roll toward a PAC title and the playoffs, and do does Hunt. PiCK: South 42-17


Purdue (+14.5) at Ohio State, Saturday: Can the Buckeyes' defense stop the Boilermakers? In Ohio Stadium, it might not matter because Purdue won't stop Braxton Miller and Co. PICK: Ohio State, 55-24

Kansas State (+4.5) at West Virginia, Saturday: Take this with a grain of salt (just look at my record this season), but the Wildcats and QB Collin Klein are my darkhorse team to play for the BCS national championshp. PICK: Kansas State 38-34


Browns (+3.5) at Colts, Sunday: This game has shootout written all over it. QB Andrew Luck and the Colts have played well at home. PICK: Colts, 38-31

Steelers at Bengals (pick), Sunday: It's difficult to pick against Ben Roethlisberger, but the Bengals keep it close at home. PICK: Steelers 27-24
