Matt Hladik and Kaitlin McCabe tied for a 21-10 record in the 31 games we selected last week. Revisit our Week 8 picks here.

College Football Week 9 features 31 games that we'll be picking this week. On Thursday night, Virginia Tech travels to Pitt in a big ACC Coastal game, while resurgent USC looks to continue to roll against Cal. On Friday, we have an awesome AAC game between ranked Navy and a very good USF team. After the SEC dominated last Saturday, the ACC and Big Ten rule this weekend. Clemson has one final big regular season hurdle at Florida State, while Michigan looks for revenge against struggling Michigan State, Ohio State looks to bounce back from last weekend's loss to Penn State against Northwestern, and Wisconsin and Nebraska battle for Big Ten West supremacy.

Here are our staff picks for every Power Five and Top 25 game for College Football Week 9.
