Local10.com college football picks: Week 8

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – For the first time all season, executive sports producer David Lang finished last week with the best record.

Lang was 10-2 in his picks, while the rest of the group were tied with 8-4 records.

His strong week pulled him ahead of sports producer Tory McMahon, who is one game behind with a 51-26 record.

Sports reporter Clay Ferraro remains in second place overall with a 56-21 record. He is chasing Local10.com managing editor Peter Burke for first place in the standings.

Everyone is unanimous in their choice of second-ranked Florida State to defeat No. 5 Notre Dame in a battle of unbeaten teams. The Seminoles are 5-2 all-time against Notre Dame, but the Fighting Irish won in their only previous visit to Tallahassee in 2002.

The group is also in agreement that No. 11 Oklahoma will beat No. 14 Kansas State for the seventh time in the past eight meetings. They're also unanimous in predicting seventh-ranked Alabama to hand No. 21 Texas A&M its third straight loss.

Burke and Ferraro predict No. 23 Stanford to upset No. 17 Arizona State in a rematch of last year's Pacific 12 Conference title game, but Lang and McMahon are staking their reputations on the Sun Devils at home.

Below are the latest picks in bold.
