Who has best chance to finish undefeated after Week 8?

Michigan saw its chances of an undefeated regular season more than double this weekend and it joins a pack of five teams that have separated themselves as the clear favorites to run the table.

After watching West Virginia today, I wonder whether Kliff Kingsbury can take a page from his close friend Dana Holgorsen, who has built an offense that functions with the defense in mind -- changing speeds, slowing down with a lead. Holgorsen and defensive coordinator Tony Gibson work so well together in shaping game plans. It just seems like Texas Tech's approach will never accommodate the defense, which continues to combust.
