Week 8 is a major milestone in the college football season as the Big Ten and Mountain West Conference kick off their seasons. The Big Ten is attempting to play eight games in eight weeks (with a ninth game for everyone during their championship weekend) while the Mountain West will play seven conference games with some schools playing independent BYU (or Air Force playing six conference games as well as facing Army and Navy).
So the schedule has thickened a bit, and we are in a crazy -- and quick -- race for conference championships and one of those coveted spots in the College Football Playoff. Also, with the Mountain West back (and the Pac-12 starting up in two weeks) we get late night football again!
So with nearly a full slate of games on tap, here are 15 players to watch in Week 8.
