A couple weekends of relatively lowkey football have led to an excellent Week 9 slate, including two massive meetings between Big Ten East teams.

The biggest game of the week is the rivalry matchup between No. 6 Michigan and No. 8 Michigan State in East Lansing. Both teams are 7-0, making this meeting the first time in series history that these teams meet as undefeateds. Just another layer to what is already a massive game heavy with Big Ten championship and College Football Playoff implications.

Saturday’s meeting will be the biggest tests for each team thus far in 2021. The biggest players from Saturday’s game will be Spartans running back Kenneth Gainwell III, who ranks second nationally with 997 rushing yards on top of nine rushing touchdowns. Wolverines quarterback Cade McNamara (92 of 146 passing, 1,115 yards, five touchdowns to one interception) will also need a good showing.

Both defenses rank in the top 20 in points allowed: Michigan ranks second with 14.3 points per game, while Michigan State is 19th with 18.7. They’ll make it hard on the opposing offenses, so it’s imperative neither becomes one-dimensional.

Elsewhere, No. 20 Penn State will travel to No. 5 Ohio State looking to avoid a third straight loss. The Nittany Lions struggled greatly on offense in their last two games, even with quarterback Sean Clifford throwing the ball. Conversely, Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud has overcome a relatively slow start, throwing for 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions in his last three games. The one thing Penn State has going for it — apart from a fairly stout defense — is a nothing-to-lose mentality, considering they’re out of championship contention.

The SEC has a couple of big offerings as well, mainly in the meeting between No. 10 Ole Miss and No. 18 Auburn. Matt Corral will look to keep his standing near the top of the Heisman Trophy odds in place against an Auburn team that has rebounded for some big wins in recent weeks. And you can’t forget the neutral-site rivalry matchup between No. 1 Georgia and Florida in Jacksonville, Fla.

Sporting News breaks down how to watch those games and more in Week 9. Here’s everything you need to know:
