College Football Playoff picks after Week 8

College Football, Alabama Crimson Tide, Penn State Nittany Lions, Georgia Bulldogs, TCU Horned Frogs

Penn State solidified its hold on the No. 2 spot with its signature win of the season, defeating Michigan 42-13. The Nittany Lions will face an even tougher test next week at Ohio State, but for now they are in firm command of the No. 2 spot in our experts' playoff picks.

Alabama is the obvious pick for No. 1 following its 45-7 destruction of Tennessee. 

Meanwhile, TCU rolled past an overmatched Kansas and Georgia enjoyed a week off, meaning the top four remain the same this week. Of course, that could all change next week.
