ESPN Images

College football is underway in 2020, and it's unlike any season we have had before. One thing is familiar, though: "Stanford Steve" Coughlin and Chris "The Bear" Fallica breaking down games as only they can, offering their top bets, nuggets and totals worth wagering on. The Bear is on a roll, with two perfect weeks in a row (5-0). Can he keep it up?

Here is your guide to Week 8 of the season with the two college football analysts. (Games postponed because of COVID-19 have been removed.)


  • Stanford Steve (1-2 last week, 12-7 overall)

  • The Bear (2-0, 10-7)

The plays

No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions (-6.5, 58.5) at Indiana Hoosiers

The Bear: We know 2020 has thrown us some challenges and curveballs. We'll know for sure how messed up this year is if the Hoosiers snap their 25-game losing streak to top-10 teams.
