The Pac-12 will be heating up on Saturday night at Autzen Stadium, as the Oregon Ducks look to clinch their spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game for the second straight year as they take on the Stanford Cardinal.
Head Coach David Shaw has to be reminding his team of the last two seasons that these two teams played against each other. In 2010, the Ducks were able to essentially knock the Cardinal out of the National Championship race, and last year, in a game that Stanford was supposed to win, it was trampled by Oregon 53-30 on this very same weekend.
The Kansas State Wildcats will look to move one step closer to the BCS National Championship on Saturday night in their final road game of the season, as they hope to beat the college football odds against the hungry Baylor Bears, who absolutely have to have this game.
SEC rivals from the Volunteer State are going to meet up in Nashville on Saturday night in a nationally televised college football betting showdown between the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Tennessee Volunteers.
This has been an atrocious year for the Volunteers, but it isn’t all their fault. They are clearly not as good as some of the other great teams in the SEC, and as a part of their schedule this year, they have had to play games against the likes of Florida, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi State, and Georgia.
The Mountain West will be on display on Friday night this week, as the Air Force Falcons try to take down the Hawaii Warriors in Colorado Springs.
It has been a brutally tough first season for Head Coach Norm Chow with the Warriors. The embattled longtime assistant for several teams has yet to log his first win against an FBS team in his career as a head coach, and the only cover that the club has came as 44.5 point underdogs against one of the teams that he used to be the OC for, the USC Trojans.
A pair of ACC Coastal Division rivals meet up at Scott Stadium on ESPN’s Thursday Night Football betting festivities, as the North Carolina Tar Heels try to end the bowl hopes of the Virginia Cavaliers.
UNC is starting to get the look of a team that doesn’t really care about the rest of its season. The defense was just downright atrocious against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets last week, allowing 588 yards and a total of 68 points in a romp of a loss, and the offense, though has been putting up tons of points, has also looked sloppy at times as well.
First place in the MAC West and a likely spot in the MAC Championship Game will be handed out on Wednesday night in college football betting action, as the Northern Illinois Huskies host the Toledo Rockets.
The Rockets are clearly in some trouble after losing to the Ball State Cardinals last week at the Glass Bowl in surprising fashion. Toledo has had some major offensive problems all of a sudden, as the team has put up just 29 points or fewer in three straight games with QB Terrance Owens really struggling.
The Oregon Ducks are going to hope to avoid a massive letdown on Saturday night on the road in San Fran, where they fight it out on the CFB betting lines against the California Golden Bears.
The Quack Attack have officially solidified themselves as the most explosive and creative offense in the nation. This team dropped over 700 yards and 62 points on the USC Trojans on the road, and many think that it now holds its own destiny to get into the BCS National Championship Game.
One of the two spots in the SEC Championship Game will be clinched on Saturday night in college football betting action at Jordan Hare Stadium, where the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Auburn Tigers in one of the most crucial games of the year in the SEC.
Georgia, of course, knows that it just needs to come on the road and win this game against arguably the most hapless team in the SEC to clinch the SEC East title this year.
The 2012 season for the Kansas State Wildcats hangs in the balance right now, as they looking to take their 10th straight game to start off this season when they hit the road to take on the TCU Horned Frogs in college football betting action.
The Wildcats have the eyes of the nation on them at this point, and they know that this is probably the toughest test that they are going to have to face for the rest of the year.
The Alabama Crimson Tide can lock up a spot in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday afternoon at home if they can take down the Texas A&M Aggies in one of their tougher challenges on the college football odds all year long.
Of course, all eyes are going to be on QB Johnny Manziel in this one. The freshman is a true freak of nature, and he is putting up video game numbers in the SEC, something that hardly anyone in the past has been able to do.
