Heading into the last Saturday in October, these college football head coaches need to start winning some games.

While some college football teams are excited about what lies ahead during bowl season, other programs may be looking to turn the page with their head coach.

There are now seven openings at the FBS level with Will Healy being out in Charlotte. However, it is still mind-boggling that five Power Five head coaches were fired before the end of October. So far, there are vacancies to be had at Arizona State, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Nebraska and Wisconsin. Surely, there will be a handful of other gigs opening up after Thanksgiving Weekend.

Here are five college football head coaches who are really feeling the heat heading into Week 9.

College football hot seat watch: Who is feeling the heat heading into Week 9?

It is painful to put Jeff Hafley on here, but Boston College is not winning games

After Geoff Collins was ousted at Georgia Tech, all eyes turned to Scott Satterfield at Louisville in the ACC. But with the Cardinals improving to 4-3 on the season and still very much in the mix to achieve bowl eligibility, we now must turn our attention to Jeff Hafley in Chestnut Hill. It is painful to put a well-respected, up-and-coming coach like him on the hot seat, but win some games, man.

Boston College is tied for the worst record across the ACC at 2-5. The Eagles are 1-4 in conference play, which is actually half a game worse than the concurrent catastrophes happening in the Commonwealth of Virginia. While Tony Elliott and Brent Pry are first-time head coaches, Hafley does not have that excuse at B.C. The ACC Atlantic is brutal, but the Eagles have Phil Jurkovec…

Hafley is probably not getting the ax, but he should be on the hot seat heading into next season.
