The USC Trojans beat UCLA by a score of 50-0 last season. That ridiculous beat down in this rivalry game may have been the last straw that sent Rick Neuheisel packing. Jim Mora Jr. is the new coach at UCLA, and he has instantly turned this team around in a big way. USC was the top ranked team in the nation going into the year, but they have had a disappointing year. No one is expecting a lopsided game this time around. USC is a four-point favorite heading into this big game.
After stumbling to a 7-6 record overall and a 2-6 record in conference play in 2011, Mississippi State has been one of the biggest surprises in the SEC this season with an overall record of 7-0 straight-up (5-2 against the spread) and a 3-0 start both SU and ATS in conference play. The total has stayed UNDER in five of the Bulldogs last six games behind a defense that is giving-up an average of just 14.4 points a game.
It all comes down to this… After 34 previous bowl games and a total of 25 wins between these teams earlier in the year, the Oregon Ducks and Auburn Tigers finally get it on to determine who will be the winner of the BCS Championship, the most illustrious prize in the NCAA football betting world. This duel in Glendale, AZ is for all of the marbles this year and will be the one game that you certainly do not want to miss betting on the college football odds.
No win this year shook the framework of the college football betting world than when the Nevada Wolf Pack took out the Boise State Broncos in November. Now, the Pack are back in action this year in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, the last bowl bash of the year before the main course, the BCS National Championship Game. Nevada will take on the Boston College Eagles out in San Francisco.
Rivals from the SEC and the Big East collide at Legion Field in Birmingham for an NCAA football betting affair, as the Pitt Panthers duke it out with the Kentucky Wildcats in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
The top team in the MAC and one of the most underachieving teams in the Sun Belt meet up at the GoDaddy.com Bowl in Mobile, AL on Thursday night’s standalone college football betting affair. The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders will look to finish on top against the Miami Redhawks.
The SEC has absolutely dominated the Big Ten in the bowl season this year, but the big boys from the best in conference in the Midwest have one last chance at some vengeance, as the Ohio State Buckeyes engage in NCAA football betting warfare with the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Sugar Bowl on January 4th.
The annual Cotton Bowl Classic takes place this year at its latest date ever. However, on Friday night, the LSU Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies square off at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, instead of playing in the traditional Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
The 2011 Orange Bowl features one of the most interesting NCAA football betting matchups of the entire season. The Virginia Tech Hokies, the champions of the ACC, will be taking on the Stanford Cardinal, who might have been the runners up in the Pac-10, but they legitimately have a chance to finish in the Top 5 in the nation as well.
Over the course of the last few years, the Fiesta Bowl has provided us with some memorable moments. The Oklahoma Sooners have been the subject of two tremendous upsets in their history here, losing to the West Virginia Mountaineers in their first game without Head Coach Rich Rodriguez. However, their biggest blunder to date came against the Boise State Broncos to really start the wave of mid major success in BCS games. The good news is that there is a BCS foe on deck, but the foe is one that has never been here before. The Connecticut Huskies are the foe in this game, and they’ll be looking to continue the upsets in OU history as the biggest dogs on the bowl betting board.
