USC Back In College Football Odds

Posted on

USC is back in the oddsmakers’ lists now that the Pac-12 is playing football again.

The Trojans are 50-1 to win the College Football Playoff according to BetOnline.

Ironically, LSU is 100-1. The Tigers already have a loss and play in the better conference, of course.

The full list is below. By the way, Oregon cornerback Deommodore Lenoir has opted back in and will play for the Ducks this season. So the Ducks’ secondary won’t be quite as inexperienced.

College Football Matrix says Pac-12 needs to protect Oregon and USC with schedule

Posted on

Dave Bartoo (known as: The College Football Matrix) thinks I’m complicating what the Pac-12 Conference needs to do when it comes to the football schedule. He joined me on the radio show on Tuesday for a smart discussion about the soon-to-be released football schedule.

Listen to the full interview with Bartoo here.

The Pac-12 schedule will come out later this week. It will feature six games — five in their own division and one “crossover” game each between North-South Division teams.

While we wait, I laid out a schedule that only conspiracists and contenders would love. It was one in which contenders of the conference might enjoy some protection in the division crossover games between the North and South. Bartoo sees it as a much simpler equation — first protect USC and Oregon.

“Don’t have them play each other,” he said, “… throw the dice and protect your best two.”

Bartoo doesn’t think Washington, ASU, Cal or Utah are College Football Playoff contenders. As a result, he believes the Pac-12 should schedule a cross-over game Oregon vs. Utah or ASU to give the Ducks a chance for a quality win. He’d schedule USC vs. Washington or Cal for the same reason.

“There is absolute gamesmanship here.”
