Harris has been sensational for the Gamecocks this season, having already recorded six rushing touchdowns and 409 yards on 81 rushing attempts.

South Carolina has now won two straight SEC games, and the Gamecocks are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six games against conference foes. However, South Carolina has struggled on the road, winning just two of its last eight games away from home. 

What you need to know about LSU

Meanwhile, LSU was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as the Tigers fell 45-41 to Missouri in their last outing. Despite the defeat, LSU got a solid performance out of WR Terrace Marshall Jr., who caught 11 passes for three touchdowns and 235 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Marshall Jr.’s 75-yard TD reception in the third quarter.

Despite its slow start to the season, LSU will enter Saturday’s contest confident it can secure the victory. That’s because LSU has been dominant at Tiger Stadium, winning eight of its last nine home games. In addition, the Tigers are 6-0 in their last six games against the Gamecocks.

What you need to know about Northwestern 

The Wildcats have struggled to win on their home field. In fact, Northwestern is just 1-4 in its last five games at home. The Wildcats struggled to find the end zone in 2019, averaging just 16.33 points per game. They’ll look to be better on offense this season as Indiana transfer Peyton Ramsey begins the season as the starting quarterback. Ramsey threw for 2,454 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions last season for the Hoosiers. 

Ramsey will look to get his Northwestern career off to an impressive start with a Big Ten victory in his first outing. However, Northwestern has struggled against Big Ten opponents, going 1-9 in its last 10 meetings against conference foes. 

What you need to know about Maryland

Coming off of an uninspired 3-9 record last season, Maryland has set its aspirations higher this year. The Terrapins failed to score more than 16 points in six of their last seven games last season. Maryland has also struggled mightily on the road, winning just one of its last nine games away from home. 

Despite that, the Terrapins will look to wide receiver Dontay Demus Jr. to provide an offensive spark on Saturday. Demus led Maryland in receiving a year ago, finishing the 2019 season with 41 receptions for 625 yards and six touchdowns.

Penn State vs. Indiana odds, line: 2020 college football picks, Week 8 predictions from proven model

A Big Ten battle is on tap Saturday between the Indiana Hoosiers and the No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions at 3:30 p.m. ET at Memorial Stadium. The Hoosiers are 1-9-1 against the spread in their last 11 games as a home underdog. The Nittany Lions, meanwhile, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games.

Penn State has dominated this rivalry over the years, winning nine of the last 10 meetings between these two programs. The Nittany Lions are favored by 6.5-points in the latest Indiana vs. Penn State odds from William Hill, and the over-under is set at 62.

What you need to know about Penn State

The Nittany Lions finished the 2019 season with an 11-2 record, including a 53-39 win against Memphis in the Cotton Bowl. That marked Penn State’s third 11-win season from 2016 to 2019. Future NFL linebacker Micah Parsons opted out of the 2020 season, denting what is projected to be a strong defense.

New offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca will look to steady a unit that was either feast or famine in 2019: the Nittany Lions scored more than 40 points four times and fewer than 20 points three times. Losing running back Journey Brown (knee) for the season will certainly hurt, and quarterback Sean Clifford will need to identify reliable receivers early in the season. Last season, Clifford threw for 2,654 yards, 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

What you need to know about Indiana

Coach Tom Allen directed the Hoosiers to an 8-5 record in 2019. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. was brilliant when healthy, and he returns as the undisputed QB1 in Bloomington. Twelve of Indiana’s top 19 tacklers last season were freshmen and sophomores, which will pay major dividends in 2020. Safety Marcelino Ball is already gone for the season with a preseason knee injury, but eight linemen and linebackers who made at least four tackles for loss last year return, as do four experienced safeties. 

The Hoosiers enter Saturday’s matchup having covered the spread in seven of their last 10 games. Indiana

Jurkovec has compiled 1,526 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2020. Despite their most recent setback, the Eagles will be confident they can

What you need to know about Memphis

It was a tight matchup that could have gone either way, but Memphis made off with a 50-49 win over UCF last Saturday. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the half to overcome a 27-14 deficit. QB Brady White went supernova for Memphis as he passed for six TDs and 486 yards on 50 attempts, in addition to rushing for one TD and 30 yards.

The third-year starter has now passed for 1,062 yards and 13 touchdowns this season and has thrown just three interceptions.

He’s only rushed for 133 yards so far in 2020, but he has scored three rushing touchdowns, bringing his career total to 14 and giving the Florida State defense and added layer of complexity in the red zone.
