Michigan vs. Alabama

Wolverines: Starting RB Fitzgerald Toussaint (suspension) is out … Top WR Roy Roundtree had knee surgery two weeks ago, but is expected to play.

Auburn vs. Clemson


Alabama vs Michigan: Double Digit Odds

In a great opening weekend inter-sectional matchup Alabama's Crimson Tide begins defense of its national championship of last season when it takes on the Big Ten's Michigan Wolverines on a neutral field at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington Saturday night.

The Tide, which only has 11 starters back, is favored by 13 points over Big Blue, which returns 13 starters after going 11-2 last year.

And they were consistent cover machines in 2011, despite facing many huge point spreads.


Auburn vs Clemson: Odds On Tiger Battle

In an ACC-SEC regional Tiger fight Auburn takes on Clemson on a neutral field at the Georgia Dome Saturday night.

Auburn, coming off an 8-5 season of a year ago, is getting three points from defending ACC champion Clemson, which won this matchup last year 38-24. The line opened with Auburn as 1-point chalk, was moved off the board due to some injury and suspension details and came back around -2.5 at Bovada.

Auburn is 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as a home underdog.
