It's Week 9 of the 2019 college football season and FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd is making his picks once again. On this week's edition of The Herd, Cowherd made his 'Marquee 3' picks from some of the top matchups in the NCAA this weekend: Wisconsin-Ohio State, Auburn-LSU, and Notre Dame-Michigan.

Here's what the FS1 host had to say about each of those games:

On Wisconsin vs. Ohio State:

"Take the Badgers plus-14 to cover. They're 8-0 following a loss in the last three years. Paul Chryst is a great coach, especially after losses."

"...They lead the nation in time of possession. They'll keep it away for stretches outside of the hands of Ohio State's offense."

"...Despite the loss (to Illinois last week), Wisconsin's defense is ridiculous.

"...They've got a great running game, two-to-three pros on the o-line, Jonathan Taylor is a world class back... [but] they're going to lose this game I believe.

"...Ohio State has special playmakers. They'll go over the top to win it. But Wisconsin will be in this football game.

"...Ohio State wins 30-20, but I think Wisconsin covers and moves the ball on the Buckeyes defense."

On Auburn vs. LSU:

"Blowout baby. I'm taking LSU minus-10.5. Joe Burrow may win the Heisman. He may be a top five pick now! LSU finally throws the ball and Joe Burrow, the quarterback, has been sensational.

"...LSU is also great in big games. 6-1 in their last seven against top ten teams.

"...Auburn's quarterback is a mess. Bo Nix, freshman, against top 30 scoring defenses this year? He's terrible. This is going to be a complete mismatch.

"...Auburn's going to get overwhelmed. Auburn never wins this game in Death Valley. LSU wins it comfortably 36-20."

On Notre Dame vs. Michigan:

"Hear me out: Michigan plus-one. Michigan's going to upset Notre Dame this week. They lost to Penn State but they played a great second half. They dominated Penn State on the road in the second half and had over 150 more yards.

"...Notre Dame has a good offense, but they played one great defense this year: Georgia. And did you watch what happened?

"...Remember this is in Michigan... Michigan wins home games.

"...I'm calling for an upset... I know you think I'm nuts... Michigan upsets Notre Dame 27-26."

Last week Colin went 2-1 once again. He correctly called Florida and Penn State to beat South Carolina and Michigan respectively. But he was just short of perfect with Oregon beating his pick of Washington.

Will Colin get them all right this week, or has he got the picks all wrong?
