Gameday picks: How ESPN’s College Gameday picked week eight’s games

Good morning, Razorback fans. There is no football game today, but that does not mean that you can’t take a look at what the rest of the College Football world is up to.

To begin the day, ESPN’s College Gameday broadcasted their show live from the University of Oregon, where the No. 10 Ducks are set to host the No. 9 UCLA Bruins at 2:30 p.m. CT. The game features an unbeaten UCLA team that has found its groove under head coach Chip Kelly squaring off with Oregon, a team led by Auburn transfer Bo Nix.

As is customary, College Gameday selects a “guest picker” that has ties to the host school for that week. This week’s selection is a former All-American and Player of the Year for Oregon Women’s Basketball, Sabrina Ionescu. After her college career at Oregon, Ionescu went on to become the first overall selection in 2020 by the New York Liberty of the WNBA.

Here is how the crew, along with guest picker Ionescu, picked week eight’s most interesting games.
