Games that will impact CFP in Week 9 (Rankings are from AP Poll)

I don’t see Alabama, Oklahoma, or Clemson losing their games this week so they won’t be listed here.

13.Wisconsin at. 3.Ohio State
If Wisconsin loses they are unofficially knocked out of contention for the playoff. If this game was in Madison, I might pick the badgers but the way Ohio State has been playing at home with Georgia bounceback Justin Fields at QB, JK Dobbins at running back, and a stingy defense I don’t see a way OSU loses. Prediction:Ohio State 45, Wisconsin 28

9.Auburn at. 2.LSU
LSU has been on fire and that’s all you really have to say about that. Auburn is coming off a drubbing of bottom-dweller Arkansas and if they keep that offensive firepower going, this game could be a shootout. Prediction:LSU 38, Auburn 34

6.Penn State at. Michigan State
Penn State will go on the road to a hostile environment in East Lansing but I don’t expect the nittany lions to have many problems with the Spartans. Prediction:Penn State 31, Michigan State 14

8.Notre Dame at. 19.Michigan
After losing to Penn State a week ago, Michiga, unless craziness happens, is out of the race. But, Michigan can eliminate the independent Irish from a second year in a row trip to the CFP by knocking them off in Ann Arbor. Prediction:Michigan 17, Notre Dame 14
