Weekend Picks Panel -- Week 9 Top 25 game picks against the spread

Tom Fornelli and Jerry Hinnen think Landy Jones and Oklahoma should roll against Notre Dame. (US Presswire)

The Weekend Picks Panel has reconvened, and we have Week 9 selections against the spread. Jerry Hinnen and Tom Fornelli join me, as always, to break down the entire slate of Top 25 action on the podcast. You can find all of our picks, as well as the selections from other CBSSports.com writers, at the Experts Picks homepage.

This week we've got a slate loaded with conference action, and plenty of enticing spreads to debate. We dive deep in to the history of Florida and Georgia to try to decide if the Bulldogs can pull the upset in Jacksonville, or even simply cover the spread. Oklahoma has a large spread to cover against the tough Notre Dame defense, Pac-12 contenders USC and Oregon State hit the road as favorites in conference play, and the ineligibowl between Ohio State and Penn State looks especially intriguing.

In a hurry? Check the contents below for specific game picks.
