Game Notes for Week 9 of College Football
This article is brought to you by fellow poster EnergyBlue1.
Final week of play before the College Football Rankings come out and there is much going on. Conference races are heating up, games setting up huge match-ups and trap games abound. Michigan and Ohio State are on bye weeks with very different outlooks at the moment yet the same record. Alabama continues to roll. I’ll jump to it!
#1 Alabama is on a bye week watching a couple games, don’t laugh to hard Bama, #4 LSU is on a bye week as well getting ready for next week. The big game to start out.
#9Florida vs. #7 Georgia in the neutral site game in Jacksonville, the worlds largest outdoor cocktail party. Florida among many teams that have turned the season around from a disaster start. Winner is in the proverbial drivers seat with Kentucky not yet taken seriously for the SEC East.
#12 Kentucky vs. Mizzou, just can’t get excited about Kentucky yet.
#8 Oklahoma hosts Kansas State and #6 Texas hosts Oklahoma State! Just seems like a ho-hum week, but Texas has to watch out as the Okie St. offense can lite up a sleeping defense.
#2 Clemson vs. Florida State, who would have thought this should just straight up be a blow out. FSU hasn’t beat a team with a pulse yet. Even wake isn’t as good as expected so, this might be over in a hurry.
#14 Washington State vs. #24 Stanford, for the PAC12 North! College Football Playoffs race officially over for the PAC12!
#18 Iowa vs. #17 Penn State, Iowa fighting for control of the BIG10 West and Penn State fighting to not get eliminated from the BIG10 East race. As Iowa gets Purdue next week and Penn State gets #5 Michigan, a huge game for both and potential trap for both!
Purdue vs. Michigan State what an emotional week for both, huge upset win, huge loss. Both trying to stay alive and at this point ensure bowl eligibility as well. The proverbial don’t let last weeks game cost you this week’s game applies to both teams! Purdue can throw on anyone and MSU can’t stop the pass or get to the QB. Taking the spoilermakers in this one.
