College Football Picks: Expert Predictions for Every Game in Week 9

Predictions for every FBS game in Week 9

College football’s 2018 season continues with a loaded Week 9 slate featuring 55 games from Thursday to Saturday night. Five matchups are on tap for Thursday night, including Baylor at West Virginia, Appalachian State at Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech. On Friday, another five contests are slated, including Boston College hosting Miami, while UCLA looks to build on its two-game winning streak with a home matchup against Utah. The Saturday schedule kicks off with Clemson at Florida State, Wisconsin-Northwestern, Texas Tech at Iowa State and Purdue at Michigan State as the top matchups in the first window. The annual showdown between Georgia and Florida in Jacksonville is the must-see game for the afternoon, but USF-Houston, Iowa-Penn State and Kentucky-Missouri provide plenty of other intriguing matchups during that time slot. Washington State at Stanford, Texas A&M-Mississippi State, Navy vs. Notre Dame in San Diego, NC State at Syracuse and Texas at Oklahoma State headline the top contests at night. The late window of games includes three intriguing West Coast matchups, as Oregon travels to Arizona, Fresno State hosts Hawaii and Nevada looks to upset San Diego State in Reno.
