College Bowl Schedule 2011-2012

It all starts on December 17 with the smaller schools and ends Jan. 9 with the big boys in LSU and Alabama battling for the national title.

Along the way, the college football bowl schedule includes 35 games where potatoes and poinsettias and roses and oranges make their way into the football betting vernacular.

The New Mexico Bowl kicks it all off among three games on Dec. 17. Three days later, it’s the Beef O Bradys Bowl, the former St. Petersburg Bowl.


Army Navy Game Odds Preview

In one of college football’s oldest rivalries, the Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen will meet at FedExField in Landover, Maryland.

*Editor Note: See 2012 edition of Army Navy odds preview here.

Navy has won nine straight by double digits over Army and the Army Navy game odds reflect this as the Knights are favored by a touchdown. This year, both teams have struggled as Navy is just 4-7 SU and Army is just 3-8 SU.


Andrew out of Luck in Heisman odds

All season long, Stanford QB Andrew Luck was the top dog on the odds to win the Heisman Trophy lists at all online sportsbooks.

But one slip-up against Oregon in the Pac 12 and some Heisman-worthy performances from Robert Griffin III in Baylor and Trent Richardson in Alabama have put Luck at No. 3.


Big Ten Championship Game Odds

The Michigan State Spartans and the Wisconsin Badgers provided one of the most entertaining games of the regular season back in October, and they’ll meet for a rematch and a trip to the Rose Bowl in the Big Ten Championship Game.

While not much has separated these two teams at 5-5 SU and ATS in their last 10 meetings, offense has been consistent; the OVER is 8-0-1 in their last nine games.

Montee Ball has scored 34 touchdowns this season, and is just five shy of Barry Sanders’ all-time single-season record of 39.


Big 12 Title Game Betting

The No. 3 Oklahoma State Cowboys host the No. 13 Oklahoma Sooners with the Big 12 and a Fiesta Bowl berth on the line.

If Oklahoma State wins convincingly, there is a slight chance that they could pass Alabama and earn a trip to the BCS Championship Game. Oklahoma has dominated this rivalry recently though as the Sooners are 8-0 SU and 7-1 ATS in their last 10 games against the Cowboys.

Brandon Weeden threw for 476 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions in Oklahoma State’s stunning loss to Iowa State.


LSU vs Georgia: SEC Title Game Odds

The LSU Tigers have already done enough to earn a trip to the BCS National Championship Game, but with a win over the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game in the Georgia Dome they could finish up their undefeated regular season and win the conference title.

LSU is 12-0 SU and 9-3 ATS this season, while Georgia is 10-0 SU and 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games after losing its first two of the season.

Rueben Randle had nine catches for 134 yards in LSU’s 41-17 win over Arkansas.
