Late Kick Live #76 features Josh Pate breaking down college football’s biggest week 9 matchups including Ohio State vs Penn State and LSU vs Auburn. Will James Franklin and the Nittany Lions be able to rebound from a week 1 upset or will Ryan Day’s Buckeyes continue to own the Big Ten? Was last week’s domination over South Carolina what Ed Orgeron and LSU needed and will they carry that momentum into Jordan-Hare Stadium against Gus Malzahn and Auburn? Plus Josh updates the best and worst case record projections for several teams in the SEC. Follow Josh on Twitter: @LateKickJosh Have a question for Josh? Email the show!
