(Sporting Alert) — The following are the list of games and respective TV channels and live streaming channels for Week 8 on the NCAAF – College Football – schedule on Saturday.
Highlighted game on the list is the clash between No. 3 Clemson (6-0, 4-0 ACC) and the rising No. 5 Florida State (5-0, 3-0 ACC) at Memorial Stadium, in South Carolina. This game will be broadcast live on ABC, starting at 8:00 PM ET.
Both teams are defeated so far this season, with Clemson coming off a 24-14 win over Boston College and a well rested Seminoles returns to action for the first time since their thumping 63-0 win over Maryland on Oct. 5.
The Crimson Tide have been putting up big numbers in their previous games, including scoring 45 or more points in the last two games, but head coach Nick Saban believes his team can still improve in certain areas.
Victory against Kentucky was easy last Saturday, especially when you look at the 48-7 final score.
However, Saban still see room to improve.
“I don’t think that we’ve played our best game by any stretch of the imagination,” he said. “I think there’s a lot of things that we can improve on.”
Arkansas, after winning its opening three games of the season, is now on a four game losing streaking and entertain Saturday’s contest wanting to quickly forget about the 52-7 loss to No. 11 South Carolina last Saturday.
Still, Saban his players not to get caught up in that score and warned that the Razorbacks could turn out to be their toughest test thus far.
“This is certainly going to be our biggest test in terms of the some of the challenges they present to us,” Saban said of the fixture.
The defeat last week saw Arkansas matching its longest losing streak under head coach Bret Bielema and he wants his players to keep on fighting to end this bad streak.
In fact, he’s called on everyone to step up.
“When adversity strikes, you don’t try and fight it alone,” Bielema said. “You fight it together, and I think that’s the part that we’ve got to rally around.”
He added: “Everybody’s got to step up a little bit better, starting with me as a head coach and all our assistants. That’s the No. 1 thing plaguing our program right now.”
No. 2 Oregon (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12), staying on the heals of Alabama and waiting for a slip up, will entertain Washington State (4-3, 2-2 Pac-12), a week after hammering the then-No. 16 Washington Huskies 45-24 on the road.
Elsewhere, on Saturday, No. 4 Ohio State (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) return against Iowa (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes last played on Oct. 5 where they battle to a 40-30 victory over Northwestern.
In more action No. 6 LSU are at Ole Miss, No. 9 UCLA travel to face the No. 13 Stanford, who will be looking to rebound from 27-21 shocking defeat to Utah last week, No. 7 Texas A&M is expected to face a very strong and determined No. 24 Auburn, while No. 11 South Carolina are at Tennessee, searching for more positive results.
