The long wait is almost over. We're less than a week away from the start of the college football season. With that in mind, we thought it'd be a perfect time to check into the futures market and see who the favorites are to win the 2012 BCS Championship. Landry Jones and the Sooners are run-away faves Oklahoma always seems to disappoint under coach Bob Stoops.
The Crimson Tide lost their starting QB, RB and top wideout to the NFL Draft. But coach Nick Saban's might have the best defense in college football. Alabama's schedule isn't nearly as tough as it was last season but winning at Gainesville against the Gators won't be easy. These odds are from bet365.com but a lot of books have the Tide in the +400 to +500 range.
Florida State: +1100
An ACC team winning the BCS National Championship Game sounds kind of farfetched but there's a lot of talent on this year's Seminoles. Florida State lost its starting QB but E.J. Manuel has played well in some of FSU's biggest games in recent seasons.
Boise State: +1200
As we've seen in the past, sometimes an undefeated season isn't enough to score the Broncos a ticket to the national championship game. Boise State opens the season with its toughest game, at Georgia, and plays in a tougher conference after making the switch from the WAC to the MWC. They'll still be favored in each of their games this year.
Urban Meyer's left the building but the five-star recruits are still in place. New offensive coordinator Charlie Weis should make better use of playmakers Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps while running an offense better suited for QB John Brantley.
The Ducks came up short in last year's title game but bring back starting QB Darron Thomas and RB LaMichael James. Oregon plays at LSU on the first Saturday of the season and at Stanford in November.
The Tigers won't have their starting QB Jordan Jefferson for their Week 1 tilt against Oregon but is there really much difference between Jefferson and backup QB Jarrett Lee? Either way, LSU wins most games because of its defense, not its offense.

This is a 1* Free Play on Florida Atlantic in college hoops on Saturday
We played against UTEP in its last game Thursday and unfortunately, the Miners were able to win their first road game of the season but I do not expect a repeat of that. They came into the game against Florida International with seven straight road losses to start the season but shot 56.2 percent from the floor including 57.9 percent from long range to take out the Golden Panthers. That was their third straight win and fourth straight cover but now they are favored on the highway for just the third time this season. Florida Atlantic has had one of the toughest schedules around as 17 of its first 25 games have been away from home and the Owls have gone 2-15 in those games. They are 5-3 in their eight home games including a 4-1record in the conference and here is another very winnable game. They are just a game behind UTEP in the C-USA standings and have a much better home/road split yet are catching points and are 2-0 ATS at home this season against teams with a winning record while going back, the Miners are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games against teams with a winning percentage below .400.
