College Football Week 9 Schedule: Wisconsin-Nebraska, Clemson-FSU top evening slate

New, comments

Get your clickers ready - the two best games on Saturday will be played in the evening and the SEC isn’t even involved.

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

It’s rare when the SEC is not in the conversation for the best matchup of the week across college football, but that’s what the schedule dictates here in week 9. No, the top matchups this week come in the Big Ten and the ACC, and both will be held under the lights.

Kicking off at 6 PM central, we find the #11 Wisconsin Badgers playing their fifth top-10 team in eight games to start the season as they host the 7th-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers. Then an hour later, Clemson and Florida State get underway from Tallahassee, with both teams ranking in the top 12.

It should be a fun Saturday across the country, so get your TVs going and fire up APC as we discuss today’s action.
