    College football picks and previews for Week 9. 

    Week 9 of the 2015 college football season is upon us, and it’s highlighted by a primetime showdown on Saturday in Philadelphia between No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 21 Temple. The Owls are looking to stay undefeated, while the Fighting Irish still have their eyes on a possible spot in the College Football Playoff.

    On Thursday in Waco, Texas, No. 5 TCU will try to stay unbeaten as it hosts the explosive West Virginia Mountaineers. Horned Frogs QB Trevone Boykin has thrown 25 touchdowns on the season, and he has TCU in line for a spot in the playoff.

    Another Big 12 team with its sights on the playoff is No. 2 Baylor. The Bears will be without the services of quarterback Seth Russell for the rest of the season. True freshman quarterback Jarrett Stidham is now the man behind center for Baylor.

    In the Southeastern Conference, the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party takes place in Jacksonville, Fla. as the annual rivalry game between No. 11 Florida and Georgia is fought at Everbank Field.
