NCAA football scores from week 8 include a great Oklahoma vs. Missouri game. The week 8 college football scores already saw No. 6 LSU lose to No. 4 Auburn, meaning that at least one of the top teams in college football will drop. The question on everyone’s mind Saturday night, is if No.11 Missouri has what it takes to knock off No. 1 Oklahoma. Missouri had tied the game at 7-7 after the first quarter, and at halftime they led Oklahoma 17-14. Playing at home in front of an extremely excited crowd has Missouri in position to have their fan base rush the field if they can upset the best team in college football (according to the BCS rankings).

No. 11 Missouri 36 — Oklahoma 27 (Final)
In some of the other action taking place on Saturday, No. 7 Michigan State beat Northwestern 35-27, giving them an 8-0 undefeated record, and most likely moving them into the top six at the very least after LSU lost. That is going to make Spartans fans pretty darn happy this season. According to the ESPN scoreboard, Ohio State also won their game, beating Purdue in the latest home game in Columbus. The win could put Ohio State back into the top 10, but that will depend on what voters choose to do with the LSU vs. Auburn result. Alabama didn’t drop much when they lost, so that might save LSU as well on Sunday.
Then there is West Virginia, thought to be one of the teams that had the best chance to win the Big East Conference this season. ESPN had even talked about them being the only team that should be ranked out of the conference, but now Syracuse is the Big East team that everyone should be paying attention to. According to the ESPN scoreboard, West Virginia took a 14-10 lead into the second quarter, but wasn’t able to score again in their Saturday game. The nine points they gave up to Syracuse in the second quarter ended up in their undoing, and now West Virginia falls behind Syracuse by way of tie-breakers in the Big East.
Big Ten Conference leader Michigan State had a huge test this morning, having to go to Northwestern and play a team that is really trying to rebound. Northwestern almost did just that, taking a 24-14 lead into the fourth quarter, only to see it evaporate as the Michigan State offense finally starting clicking.
