College Football Week 10 2023 Preview. The biggest upset of Week 9 was previously unranked Kansas Jayhawks beating previously undefeated No. 6 Oklahoma 38-33. The Jayhawks move into the No. 22 position with the win.
Arizona outlasted No. 11 Oregon State 27-24, but that wasn’t enough to move them to the top 25. They’ll have a second chance when they take on another Pac-12 rival, No. 20 UCLA.
Week 9 had a third upset when Georgia Tech beat No. 17 North Carolina 46-42. That loss dropped the Tar Heels out of the top 25.

No. 1 Georgia Faces Their Biggest Challenge Yet
Georgia faces their most formidable challenge this year as they take on fellow SEC East team Missouri, which is in second place just below the Dawgs. But it doesn’t stop there, as they will also face Ole Miss and Tennessee.
The Tigers had a well-placed bye in Week 9 to prepare for their big game against the Bulldogs. They are one of the few teams in the SEC that can overtake Georgia in the standings, but they have to win this one. The odds makers don’t expect it, but keep your limits in as stranger things have happened this season.
Another First and Second-Place Team Matchup
The Washington Huskies and USC Trojans shouldn’t be such a small spread (-3) because USC has lost two games and almost lost to California in Week 9 (50-49). But they are in second place, right behind the undefeated Huskies in the Pac-12. So, the oddsmakers are expecting a close championship-type game.
I think the reason for the small spread is that Washington looked shaky against unranked Stanford last week. I don’t buy it. The Huskies will prevail and cover. But I’m more interested in the total points of 77, the biggest this week. They’re expecting a lot of offense without much defense in this one. It should be a hell of a game.
Texas to Host Recently Ranked Kansas State
The Longhorns’ quarterback, Quinn Ewers, was sidelined with a shoulder sprain and sat out Week 9 against BYU. His replacement, Maalik Murphy, handled his first career start remarkably well for a 35-6 win. He’s expected to start against Kansas State as well.
The Wildcats’ quarterback, Will Howard, had an astounding game against Houston in a 41-0 blowout, showing Howard’s offensive skills and the talent behind the defense.
The Wildcats are behind the Longhorns in the Big 12, so having a newly tried quarterback will make a heck of a wildcard in this matchup. If Kansas State can find Murphy’s weakness, they can turn the game around. But he’s 6’5″, 240 pounds, with impressive arm talent. Let’s see what he can do when he meets some real pressure.
LSU’s Last Shot at the Playoffs
If the LSU Tigers have any chance of topping the SEC West, they must win their remaining games, including the next one against Alabama. Their offense is one of the best in the nation and is led by quarterback Jayden Daniels. Their defense has also improved, so they do have a chance.
Alabama’s one loss shows they can be beaten, especially by a desperate and talented team. Don’t count LSU out.
