It’s time to turn our attention to Week 9 of the 2017 college football regular season. I’ve put together a betting schedule with start times, TV Listings and game odds for every FBS contest. Our staff will be previewing a number of these matchups over the next few days and providing a free pick on either the spread or total of that game. Links to the previews will be added to the table below, so be sure to check back often.

Week 9 College Football Preview Schedule & Betting Odds

Plenty of weekday action for those that can’t wait until Saturday for the NCAAF fix. There are 4 games on tap for Thursday with 3 more on the way Friday. Unfortunately the games aren’t all that exciting, though we do have a ranked team in action both nights. No. 20 Stanford is at Oregon State Thursday, while No. 24 Memphis hosts Tulane on Friday.

Saturday more than makes up for the lackluster games during the week, as we have 4 games that pit two Top 25 teams against each other, plus several others where Top 25 teams are on upset alert.

The game that will get the most hype is the Big Ten showdown between No. 2 Penn State and No. 6 Ohio State. It’s likely to decide who wins the Big Ten West and moves into the driver seat to represent the conference in the playoffs. Not far behind this matchup is No. 9 Notre Dame hosting No. 14 NC State. You also have No. 11 Oklahoma State on the road against No. 22 West Virginia and No. 25 Iowa State hosting No. 4 TCU.

You also have the SEC East rivalry matchup between Florida and No. 3 Georgia. No. 7 Clemson hosting a good Georgia Tech in their first game off that shocking loss to Syracuse. No. 10 Oklahoma against a potent Texas Tech offense. There’s also three ranked teams who could be on upset alert. You got No. 16 Michigan State at Northwestern, No. 15 Washington State at Arizona and No. 21 USC at Arizona State.

Those are just the contest that involve a team that is ranked inside the Top 25. There’s several other matchups worth tuning into, so be sure to look over the full schedule when deciding which games to bet this week.
