College Football Top 25: Week 9 Report, Betting Lines And Major Match-ups

College Football Week 9 Betting Lines With Top 25 Match-ups And News

College football continues into Week 9 and I’ve got you covered with a Top 25 report in my update at Forbes, along with highlights and news you can bet on. That includes the three Top 25 match-ups in Week 9.

  • No. 13 Wisconsin at No. 3 Ohio State (-14.5) – 12:00 ET on FOX
  • No. 9 Auburn at No. 2 LSU (-10.5) – 3:30 ET on CBS
  • No. 8 Notre Dame (-1) at No. 19 Michigan – 7:30 ET on ABC

Brief profiles, capsules and ATS information on these marquee matchups in my Top 25 report at Forbes.

All six teams in the three Top 25 match-ups are defensive dominators by guidelines and stats I use to determine the stronger defensive college football teams. Also, both Wisconsin (7.6) and Ohio State (8.0) lead the country in scoring defense. Check out the efficient and balanced offenses, and update your numbers knowing Auburn has fallen off the list but still rushing for more than 190 yards per game with good balance. Ohio State (49.7) is now the highest scoring team in college football, but that number will definitely fall after they battle defensive dominator Wisconsin this week. Alabama, LSU and Oklahoma all average at least 47 points per game.
