Here is a look at my best college football predictions for the Big 12 Week 9 matchups.

UCF Finally Gets Big 12 Win

No one saw UCF giving Oklahoma a scare heading into Week 8, but the Knights were a two-point conversion away from sending the game into overtime. There is a pathway for UCF bouncing back to close the season, and it starts with the return of starting quarterback John Rhys Plumlee.

The Knights should use the momentum gained in Norman to finally put together a complete game in Big 12 play. UCF gets the homecoming win against West Virginia and covers the seven-point spread in the Las Vegas odds on their way to the program’s first Big 12 victory.

College Football Pick ATS: UCF -7

Iowa State Delivers Against Baylor

After a slow start, Iowa State is proving the team still belongs in the top half of Big 12 teams. Iowa State faces a Baylor team in Week 9 that is heading in the opposite direction.

The Cyclones are coming off a bye after two straight victories over Cincinnati and TCU. After two weeks of rest, Iowa State cruises against Baylor.

College Football Pick ATS: Iowa State -2.5

BYU Hangs Around Against Texas

This is a bit of a puzzling number as Texas is a 17.5-point favorite against BYU despite not having star quarterback Quinn Ewers. The Longhorns should still be able to get the “W” against the Cougars, but don’t be surprised if BYU hangs around with Ewers sidelined.

BYU is coming off a 27-14 win over Texas Tech. Bet online the Cougars to cover against the Longhorns.

College Football Pick ATS: BYU +17.5

Houston Covers Versus Kansas State

Kansas State is going with a two-quarterback system as freshman Avery Johnson continues to emerge as a threat. Johnson is being utilized more for his legs with the quarterback notching 16 carries for 73 yards compared to 10 pass attempts against TCU in Week 8.

Houston gave Texas a scare and enters Manhattan with confidence making 17.5 points a lot to lay with Kansas State. Let’s take Houston to cover the spread against Kansas State.

College Football Pick ATS: Houston +17.5
