Week 8 preview: A&M vs. 'Bama; Helfrich under pressure

As the college football season makes the turn into the back half of the season, we're due for a startling upset.

The first week of the season, two teams ranked in the top 10 lost to unranked teams.

No. 5 LSU fell to Wisconsin and No. 10 Notre Dame lost to Texas . Since then we have learned Notre Dame is not all that good and Wisconsin really is.

Only one top 10 team has lost to an unranked team since that first week. That was Navy upsetting then-No. 6 Houston .

Nittany Lions confident they can hang with No. 2 Buckeyes

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Ohio State coaches and players are plenty familiar with the difficult environment that awaits them in Happy Valley.

The No. 2 Buckeyes (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) survived against Wisconsin in a hostile, raucous atmosphere last week, similar to the one they'll face in their third-straight road game against Penn State (4-2, 2-1), where Ohio State will have to deal with more than 100,000 fans clad in white.
