    Here are the most interesting games and lines for Week 15/championship week. As always, point spreads for ESPN odds page and all times Eastern:


    Central Florida (+5.5) at East Carolina, 7:30 p.m., ESPN (UCF can clinch share of AAC title with win)


    MAC championship (at Detroit): Bowling Green (+5.5) vs. Northern Illinois, 7 p.m., ESPN2

    Pac-12 championship (at San Francisco): Arizona (+13.5) vs. Oregon, 9 p.m., Fox


    Conference USA championship: Louisiana Tech (+12.5) at Marshall, noon, ESPN2

    Houston (+7) at Cincinnati, noon, ESPN (Cincinnati can clinch share of AAC title with win)

    Iowa State (+32) at TCU, noon, ABC

    Oklahoma State (+19.5) at Oklahoma, 3:30 p.m., Fox

    Kansas State at Baylor, 7:45 p.m., ESPN (no line yet due to Bryce Petty concussion)

    ACC championship (at Charlotte): Florida State (-3.5) vs. Georgia Tech, 8 p.m., ABC

    Big Ten championship (at Indianapolis): Wisconsin (-4) vs. Ohio State, 8:17 p.m., Fox (I double-checked this twice and yes, Wisconsin is favored)

    I expected Wisconsin to be favored by 2 or 3. Four is kinda pushing it, but it's not terribly surprising.

    Gotta love a conference title game with a 19.5-point spread.

    Yeah, with the Barrett injury it makes sense the Badgers would be favored. But it initially surprised me.

    Just saw where Briles already came out and said that Petty is playing.

    If for some reason he doesn't play,I would guess a 7 or 8 point line.......if he does.......13 or 14.......

    Put everything you own on Wisky. EVERYTHING.

    19.5 seems high for the Fighting T. Boones.......

    Vegas books still aren't listing Baylor-KSU, but if they do eventually post it, I'll make the change.

    Oregon doing everything it can to keep viewers tuned in here in the first half.

    Unfortunately, Arizona blew its chance (or four chances).

    As with the crowd, Arizona declined to show up for this game.

    Twenty-five first-half yards for the Wildcats.

    Could lightning strike again for Northern Illinois (and it's conference's) athletic budget?

    Huskies smoke Bowling Green to claim the MAC championship. Now they root like hell for Fresno State to knock off Boise State ...

    Kudos to NIU; as I mentioned in the poll thread, they just keep reloading each year to dominate the lower-flight of FBS football.

    117 Kansas State
    118 Baylor
    -8½ -10

    Take the Bears. Large.

    Announced 45,618 at the Field of Jeans last night.

    Must have fat-fingered the 4 instead of the 2.

    TCU clearly isn't playoff material with only a 17-3 lead at home against a 3-win team.
