Clemson's win over UGA shuffles BCS Championship odds

The Clemson Tigers’ big Week 1 victory over the Georgia Bulldogs has shuffled the ACC power’s BCS Championship futures odds, moving Clemson from 25-1 to 15-1 at the LVH Superbook in Las Vegas.

The Tigers defeated the Bulldogs 38-35 as 1.5-point home underdogs Saturday night. Georgia, which opened the season among the BCS favorites, plummets from 12-1 to 30-1 to win the national title.

Alabama, the two-time defending national title winner, had its futures trimmed after a convincing 35-10 win over Virginia Tech in Week 1. The Crimson Tide moved from +250 to +225, with Georgia’s loss sending ripples through the rest of the SEC. Texas A&M (15-1 from 12-1), LSU (25-1 from 20-1) and Florida (30-1 from 25-1) all had their odds go up a tick with Alabama’s closest competition now all but out of the national title running.

Michigan was among the more notable adjustments to the BCS futures following Week 1. The Wolverines had their priced chopped in half, jumping from 50-1 to 25-1 following a 59-9 blasting of Central Michigan on the weekend.

Oregon State came into the season as a 100-1 long shot to win the BCS title but a loss to FCS Eastern Washington knocks them to 9999-1. The same goes for Kansas State, which opened 300-1 but is now 9999-1 after falling to FCS kings North Dakota State.

Glad I got the Wolverines early at 60-1. After they blast Notre Dame this week the schedule is very favourable from there. Big Blue very likely plays Ohio St Nov 30th undefeated for a chance to go to Big 10 title game.
