Today’s College Football Schedule: TV Channels, Start Times for Each Top 25 Game of Week 9

A couple of relatively low-key soccer weekends have resulted in an excellent Week 9 slate, including two massive meetings between the Big Ten East teams.

The biggest game of the week is the rivalry matchup between No. 6 Michigan and No. 8 Michigan State in East Lansing. Both teams are 7-0, making this meeting the first time in series history that these teams have met undefeated. Just another layer of what is already a massive game loaded with Big Ten championship implications and college football playoffs.

Saturday’s meeting will be the biggest test for each team so far in 2021. The biggest players in Saturday’s game will be Spartans running back Kenneth Gainwell III, who ranks second nationally with 997 rushing yards plus nine. ground touchdowns. Wolverines quarterback Cade McNamara (92 of 146 passes, 1,115 yards, five touchdowns to one interception) will also need a good performance.

Both defenses rank in the top 20 in points allowed: Michigan is second with 14.3 points per game, while Michigan State is 19th at 18.7. They will make it difficult for opposing offensives, so it is imperative that neither becomes one-dimensional.

On the other hand, the No. 20 from Penn State will travel to the No. 5 from Ohio State looking to avoid a third consecutive loss. The Nittany Lions struggled on offense in their last two games, including with quarterback Sean Clifford throwing the ball. By contrast, Ohio State’s CJ Stroud has come off a relatively slow start, throwing for 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions in his last three games. The only thing Penn State has going for it, other than a pretty solid defense, is a nothing to lose mentality, considering they are out of the championship contention.

The SEC also has a couple of great offers, mostly in the match between No. 10 Ole Miss and No. 18 Auburn. Matt Corral will be looking to maintain his position near the top of the Heisman Trophy odds against an Auburn team that has rallied for some big wins in recent weeks. And you can’t forget the neutral-site rivalry showdown between No. 1 Georgia and Florida in Jacksonville, Florida.

Sporting News breaks down how to watch those games and more in Week 9. Here’s everything you need to know:
