Oklahoma-Kansas, Oregon-Utah, more: CFB Week 9 by the numbers

Updated Oct. 25, 2023 2:56 p.m. ET

Oklahoma is one of the most successful programs in college football history, currently ranking sixth all time in wins with 941 and sporting a jaw-dropping 252-60 (.808) record since 2000.

However, this is just the fourth time in the last 20 years that Oklahoma has started a season 7-0. Brent Venables' team will put its undefeated record on the line this weekend as the Sooners travel to Lawrence, Kansas to take on the Jayhawks in a Big 12 showdown. The "Big Noon Kickoff" crew will be on hand as Kansas seeks its first win over a top-10 opponent since the 2008 Orange Bowl. Pregame coverage will begin at 10 a.m. ET, followed by the game at Noon ET (FOX and the FOX Sports app).

Following that matchup, No. 8 Oregon will meet No. 13 Utah in a Pac-12 showdown at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX. The Ducks lead the all-time series between the two, 24-12, but the Utes have won two of the last three meetings. 

Later in the evening, No. 3 Ohio State will take on Wisconsin, while Coach Prime and the Buffaloes head to Rose Bowl Stadium to face off against No. 23 UCLA. Both games begin at 7:30 p.m. ET.
