College Football Top 25 Preview

Saturday's  Week  9 slate features  20 games featuring top-25 teams, including 
three tilts featuring both squads in the rankings. 

                                      === 

Second-ranked  Oregon  didn't get  the  nod  over  Florida  State in  the  BCS 
standings, but the Ducks will have an opportunity to improve their resume when 
they  host No. 12  UCLA. The Ducks have streaked out to a 7-0 overall mark and 
have scored more than 50 points in all but one game. The Bruins are coming off 
their first loss of the season last Saturday against Stanford. 

                                      === 

Fifth-ranked  Missouri will  try  to further  secure its  place  atop the  SEC 
Eastern    Division   standings   when   it   entertains   20th-ranked   South 
Carolina.  While  many expected Missouri  to improve  upon its 5-7 record from 
2012,  few  anticipated that  it could  climb this high,  this quickly. It has 
started the season a perfect 7-0, which includes wins over Florida (36-17) and 
Georgia  (41-26) in recent  weeks to move to 3-0 in the SEC, opening up a two- 
game lead in the East. 

                                      === 

Ranked  rivals in the Big 12 Conference get together on Saturday afternoon, as 
No.  10  Texas Tech  pays a visit  to No.  17 Oklahoma. The  Red Raiders are a 
perfect  7-0  on the season,  only the fourth  time that's happened in history 
(last  being  in 2008), and  the first  with former standout quarterback Kliff 
Kingsbury  as their  head coach. Oklahoma brings a 6-1 mark into this contest, 
and  Bob  Stoops' troops have won  three of their  four Big 12 bouts, the lone 
setback  coming in  the annual Red River Rivalry matchup with Texas (36-20) on 
Oct. 12. 

                                      === 

Big  Ten  border rivals collide  on Saturday  night, as the fourth-ranked Ohio 
State  Buckeyes  host the  Penn State  Nittany Lions. Ohio  State won its 19th 
straight  game  last Saturday, as it  slipped past the visiting Iowa Hawkeyes, 
34-24.
