College Football Free Predictions & Previews from Winners & Whiners: Week 9

Can you believe we’re in Week 9 of college football? Most of the season is over and now teams are positioning themselves for the bowls and playoffs. There was only one major surprise in Week 8 and that featured Purdue’s shocking 29-point win over No. 2 Ohio State. This week, No. 18 Iowa battles No. 19 Penn State, No. 14 Washington State takes on No. 24 Stanford, No. 9 Florida faces No. 7 Georgia from Jacksonville and No. 2 Clemson travels to unranked Florida State.

(Note: These picks are made by Winners And Whiners’ Editor and may be different from the site’s handicappers.)

*Iowa visits Happy Valley to take on Penn State. The Hawkeyes are coming off a shutout of Maryland but at 6-1, they have yet to record a signature win. Trace McSorley leads a Penn State team that has not played well since their bye week on Oct. 6. They fell at home to Michigan State on Oct. 13 and then barely got by Indiana, 33-28 last week. Penn State bounces back this week and blows out the Hawkeyes.

*Washington State travels to California, looking to extend their three-game winning streak. They are coming off an impressive 34-20 win over Oregon as Gardner Minshew threw for four touchdowns. Stanford broke a two-game losing streak with a 20-13 road win over Arizona last Thursday. Washington State is dangerous because they finally have a defense. Take the Cougars on the road.

*Florida and Georgia are coming off bye weeks and will meet in the world’s largest outdoor cocktail party in Jacksonville. The Bulldogs lost at LSU by 20 in their last game, while Florida came back to beat Vandy by 10 on the road. Georgia has a balanced offense but some questions remain about their defense. The Gators will take advantage. Take the neutral dog.

*Clemson moved up to No. 2 in the polls after the Ohio State loss and their 41-7 dominating performance over a pretty good NC State team. Florida State has something to prove but at 4-3, are they ready to take on the Tigers? Last season, they were squashed by 17 and that’s the line. Hard to believe FSU can compete in this one so go with Clemson.
