    ....And did I just see the OU/Tennessee line correctly?.......

    That is very very interesting.
    Is Vegas not sold on Oklahoma, or oversold on UT?

    BYU wins at Nebraska but is a home dog to Boise?

    Will look more closely later but at first blush:

    Michigan, Georgia, Ohio State (*should* be 62-7 but only 4 days rest too), Colorado State.

    Bovada has not come out yet, but the consensus is a pick 'em. Fantasy911 actually has Tennessee as a 1-point favorite.

    Tennessee gave up 30 points and about 500 yards to Bowling Green, but they did score 59. Will definitely be a statement game for the Vols.

    Mangum might be good enough to get the job done, but BYU went off a cliff last year after Taysom Hill got hurt.

    Has Memphis ever been a two-touchdown road favorite? Not that they don't deserve it at dogass Kansas, but still ...
