2017 College Football Week 9 TV and Announcer Schedule

This weekend, Fox televises one of the most anticipated college football games of the season when No. 2 Penn State Nittany Lions travels to Columbus, Ohio this week to face off against No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes. It has been nearly 20 years since a Penn State football team sat atop the college football world, and back then, it was a win against Ohio State that propelled them to rank No. 1. It may be a case of deja vu this year. These two teams have met 31 times since the Associated Press starting ranking college football teams, and at least one of the two teams has been ranked in 30 of those games.

NBC will air No. 9 Notre Dame host No. 14 North Carolina State. Both the Fighting Irish and Wolfpack started the season outside the Top 25 but still have legitimate playoff hopes after 6-1 starts.

The following is the Week 9 college football regular season schedule featuring the Top 25 teams (according to the weekly Associated Press poll), including dates, start times, TV networks and scheduled announcers.
