Week 10 of the FBS season is upon us and with it one of the best slates of games we've seen all year. There's the obvious with Alabama traveling to Death Valley to take on LSU in primetime, but don't sleep on the biggest game in Kentucky football history as they welcome Georgia to Lexington. These contests and more will go a long way in dictating College Football National Championship odds in November — especially since the initial playoff rankings are out.
It should come as no surprise that the Crimson Tide are the odds-on favorite with Clemson close behind. It's once you gander further down the list that things get interesting.
LSU is currently listed at 25-1 to win it all, which goes to show how the oddsmakers feel about their chances of knocking off 'Bama on Saturday as 14.5-point dogs. If the Tigers fall, they're toast.
Notre Dame is poised to make the final four, but it has a sneaky-tough matchup this weekend against a Northwestern team that's already upset Michigan State and Wisconsin. The Irish must also face a much-improved Syracuse squad while ending the season on the West Coast versus USC.
Things get interesting further down the board. Central Florida, who last lost a game in 2010 — or at least it feels that way — are still massive 75-1 long shots.
