The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football Week 9 Predictions 

College Football Week 9 Predictions 

Who wins, who loses?
Publish Date: 10/27/2018
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Another week in College Football another unbeaten falls, this time it was unranked Purdue shocking #2 Ohio State, along with Washington State upsetting Oregon and several competitive games in the Top-25 for Week 8.

Week 9 is highlighted by marquee matchups in the SEC, Big Ten, and Pac-12.  The rest of the College Football regular season is all about conference games that equate to National Quarterfinals. Next week is the release of the 1st official Committee Playoff Rankings so buckle up for another fun week in College Football.

Marquee Matchups

#7 Georgia vs. #9 Florida: The Bulldogs host the Florida Gators in a must-win marquee matchup for position in the SEC East. The Gators have dramatically improved overall as a ball club with a legit shot to beat Georgia and earn a trip to the SEC title game. Georgia got manhandled by LSU a team Florida beat in Week 6. Georgia has faced the weaker opposition at this point but will be hungry for a victory after laying an egg. The running game will be the key with Elijah Holyfield leading the way for the Bulldogs. As the road team the Gators defense will have to create turnovers and play tough in the redzone. This fellow degenerate calls for the final score to be under the 52 points it’s set at.

The Pick: Georgia 23 Florida 20

Under The Radar

#17 Penn State vs. #18 Iowa: The Nittany Lions square-off with the Hawkeyes in what should be a grind-it-out Big Ten battle with not just bowl game implications. For Iowa this is an opportunity to add a quality win to remain in to first place of the West division. The track record of road teams leaving with a victory over Iowa in night games at Kinnick Stadium is daunting. Lucky for the Nittany Lions they play the Hawkeyes in happy valley at home this week. The biggest separating factor will be the play of Trace McSorley, who will’s his team to victory.

The Pick: Penn State 30 Iowa 23

#14 Washington State at #24 Stanford: The Cougars take the show on the road versus a stubborn Stanford squad after knocking-off Oregon last week. How will the Cardinals respond with their backs against the wall having dropped back to back games not long ago? One of the most surprising stats of the year thus far is a Stanford rushing attack being held under 100-yards per game. Also strange, the Cardinals allowing a whopping 252-yards passing per game on defense. Washington State must start fast to kill any momentum on the ground that Stanford will surely commit to in the first half. This is a true-toss up Pac-10 matchup that may come down to turnovers and penalties.

The Pick: Stanford 34 Washington State 27

Saturday Upset Special

Oklahoma State upsets #6 Texas killing the Longhorns fan base dreams of being all the way back on the national scene.

(Honorable Mention: Kentucky as a 6.5-point road dog defeats Missouri)

Hardcore Barnburner

#21 South Florida at Houston: Two weeks ago South Florida rallying to defeat Tulsa by one point to stay undefeated. Next up is the 1-loss Houston club, the Cougars are actually favored.

Texas Tech at Iowa State: Las Vegas agrees making the Cyclones a slight-home-favorite over the high-flying Red Raiders in what should be a fun game to watch for us hardcore’s.

Against The Spread

It’s very difficult for this hack-of-a-scribe not to think the Kentucky Wildcats will cover or outright win as a 6.5-point road dogs to Missouri.

(Honorable Mention: #21 South Florida covering as a 7.5-point underdog to Houston.)

Easy Money

Take it to the window, Syracuse as a slight underdog will beat North Carolina State at home.
