There could be quite a few shakeups in the polls next Sunday.
After eight weeks, there are nine unbeaten FBS teams remaining. Every one of them plays its next game away from home next, including No. 2 Michigan and No. 7 Nebraska next Saturday. ESPN’s Chris Fowler pointed out the phenomenon on Twitter.
Now 9 CFB unbeatens. ALL have ROAD games next. Saturday's best: CLEM-FSU, UDUB-UTAH, NEB-WISCO, MICH-MSU, BAY-TEX, WVU-OKST. How many lose?

No. 1 Alabama and No. 20 Western Michigan are off this week, but both play on the road in Week 10.
Of the other seven playing this weekend, Nebraska is the only underdog — an 8-point dog at No. 11 Wisconsin in what should be the Huskers’ toughest game of the season to date.
The Wolverines, on the other hand, are the biggest favorite of the other six unbeatens, currently tabbed as a three-touchdown favorite against plummeting in-state rival Michigan State.
Like Nebraska, No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Washington are facing ranked opponents in No. 12 Florida State and No. 17 Utah, respectively. The Tigers are favored by 4, the Huskies by 10. Eighth-ranked Baylor is a 3-point favorite at Texas, No. 10 West Virginia is a 4-point favorite at Oklahoma State and No. 13 Boise State is a 13.5-point favorite at Wyoming.
