College football game day: Week 9 games, how to watch, and open thread

Happy Saturday, friends.

NCAA Football: Missouri at Kentucky Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the ninth weekend of the 2023 college football season — and another Pats Pulpit college open thread. Before talking ball, though, let’s take a look at the Saturday schedule.

There are only two matchups between ranked teams, with No. 8 Oregon visiting No. 13 Utah, and No. 20 Duke taking on No. 18 Louisville. Despite a lack of high-profile matchups from that regard, a lot of high-stakes games should be expected: top-ranked Georgia will travel to Florida, No. 3 Ohio State will play Wisconsin, No. 6 Oklahoma will travel to Kansas, and Tennessee and Kentucky squaring off for a 119 time.
