The college football season is rolling into Week 8 with the conference race heating up. After Iowa’s loss to Purdue, it will be an intriguing stretch run in both East and West divisions to Indianapolis.

This weekend, 4 ranked teams will be in action against unranked conference foes with No. 5 Ohio State, No. 6 Michigan, and No. 7 Penn State returning from byes. Purdue is also up to No. 25 on the AP Poll after knocking off the Hawkeyes.

Maryland vs. Minnesota will be the only game on the B1G slate without a ranked team in action, but even that contest has some key ramifications. The Terrapins are just 2 wins away from a bowl game while the Gophers are now trying to keep pace in the suddenly wide-open B1G West.

As we get set for the weekend, be sure to check out who will be on the call for your game, courtesy of Eye on Sky and Air Sports.
