October 20 Pylon U Podcast- Previewing Week 8 and Eric Edholm Interview

Week 8 is around the corner and the slate is filled with great games and one that may be an all time classic in Alabama vs. Texas A&M that may decide the playoffs. Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) of Yahoo Sports’ Shutdown Corner joins Shane Alexander (@Alexander1Great) and Jeff Feyerer (@jfey5) on the October 20 Pylon U Podcast to preview Week 8 of college football and talk about the best prospects for the NFL draft. Besides being a top ten game that may decide the SEC, the Alabama-Texas A&M game provides a matchup between Myles Garrett, the top pass rusher, and Cam Robinson, possibly the top left tackle.
