Oregon is absolutely going to crush AZ. The spread looks like it's moved above 4 tds, but AZ lost to BYU, got beat by SDSU by 23 and nearly lost to NAU who any big conference team should crush. Oregon is far and away the best team they've played. Not saying to bet on Oregon but just letting you know.
Unfortunately we did lose to NAU my friend...I try not to remember last weekend either lol
Not sure how I misread that. I have a hard time getting into college football given that games are meaningless for the most part. 4 teams make the playoffs but if you are not ranked to begin the year, you pretty much have to go undefeated to make it, so if you get 1 loss early you are likely out unless you run the table, and it's still unlikely.
If you are ranked to begin the season you can lose 1 early and still make the playoff, as usually a couple do. But 2 losses and you are almost certainly eliminated from playoff contention.
Bowl victories have always felt meaningless to me.
I'm betting Oregon for what it's worth. I think 29.5 (current line) is easily doable by the Ducks. I really hate going against U of A but we're just a horrible team and one of the worst Power 5 teams in the country.
