Week 9 may lack the hype of previous weeks, but as we’ve seen throughout this season, anything can happen on Saturday.

The marquee game will be an under-the-lights showdown in Death Valley between SEC West foes Ole Miss and LSU. Can the young Tigers shock the world and take down the red-hot Rebels?

Sticking in the SEC, Alabama looks to prove it can win soundly on the road when the Tide battle rival Tennessee Saturday night in Knoxville.

Ohio State is quietly climbing back up the ranks, and the Buckeyes have a great opportunity to show the nation they’re a team to fear in their prime-time matchup against Penn State.

West Virginia is coming off a great upset over Baylor, and Oklahoma State hopes to rebound after a struggling performance against TCU to stay afloat in the Big 12 race.

The last big matchup of the night pits a surprise Utah team versus a USC team finding its groove. Which Pac-12 team will gain momentum in the division?
