SALT LAKE CITY — It's Week 8 of college football and all the local teams are back in action.

BYU is looking to end a two-game losing streak on the road against a Washington State team in disarray, Utah travels to Corvallis, Oregon, in hopes of keeping an undefeated conference winning streak alive against a much-improved Oregon State team, and Utah State has a Friday night tilt against a Colorado State team with a tough defense.

This week's games won't be easy to pick, but that's what makes the sport fun to watch. So get your popcorn and your favorite beverage, and enjoy the upcoming weekend of college football.

With the games comes the KSL.com College Football Pick'em, which is back for another season. If you've already signed up then you know the drill; if not, this is an opportunity to guess the score for five games each week to see if you're the closest.

It's a chance to follow the three FBS teams in the state as well as a few national teams. It's also an opportunity for bragging rights ... and maybe a gift card, too.

Each week's first-, second- and third-place winners will get a $100, $70 and $30 Visa gift card, respectively, courtesy of Goldenwest Credit Union. The overall winners of Pick'em will receive a $500 gift card for first place, a $250 gift card for second place and a $100 gift card for third place.

Each week, we'll release the KSL.com sports staff picks for you to see. Can you do a better job than us? Probably, but that's the fun of it all.

This week's games are as follows:

  • Colorado State vs. Utah State (Oct. 22, 7:30 p.m. MT, CBSSN)
  • No. 10 Oregon vs. UCLA (Oct. 23, 1:30 p.m MT, ABC)
  • BYU vs. Washington State (Oct. 23, 1:30 p.m. MT, FS1)
  • No. 22 San Diego State vs. Air Force (Oct. 23, 5:00 p.m. MT, CBSSN)
