Top-25 Matchups Set Up A Great Weekend For College Football In Week 7

Filed under: NCAA Football Betting Odds |

Ole Miss RebelsIt will be tough to top the entertainment that last week in college football provided. In total, nearly half of the top-25 teams in the country went down, including four of the top-six teams in the country.

Needless to say, the top-25 entering Week 7 of the 2014 college football season looks quite a bit different.

It’s weird to see names like Mississippi State and Ole Miss in the top-five, but that is exactly where they find themselves, and exactly where they deserve to be at this point in the season. Coming off of a pair of big wins, the state of Mississippi made a big statement across the college football landscape.

Now, it’s about continuing to build off of that momentum as each week paints another piece of the college football playoff.

Mississippi State has absolutely no time to celebrate the win over Texas A&M last week. They have a huge showdown with No.2 Auburn on Saturday. College Gameday will be in Starkville for the first time ever, closing out the SEC campus visits in the process for the show. It was the first trip to Ole Miss last week, and perhaps it’s fitting that the final SEC school comes just a week later.

Auburn looked really good against LSU last Saturday night, winning 41-7 in a convincing performance on offense and defense. Despite going on the road this week to the No.3 Bulldogs, the Tigers are field-goal favorites according to Bovada Sportsbook. Clearly oddsmakers still aren’t 100 percent convinced by Mississippi State, and are going with last season’s SEC champions.

In total, there are five ranked matchups in Week 7.

It starts right away at Noon ET on CBS, with No.13 Georgia visiting No.23 Missouri. The Tigers got the best of the Bulldogs last season in Athens. Georgia got the better of Missouri in the Tigers’ first-ever SEC home games in 2012. The away team is 2-0 in the brief series, and the betting line says that trend will continue. Georgia is a three-point favorite on the road, equaling the Auburn-Mississippi State point spread.

There is one other top-10 showdown on Saturday outside of Auburn and Mississippi State. In the Big 12, No.9 TCU will visit No.5 Baylor, with the winner getting the inside track to the Big 12 championship. TCU comes in off of the program-defining win over Oklahoma last week. The Horned Frogs must not let the excitement of that victory shift their focus. At home, the Bears are eight-point favorites to get the win.

The other ranked games come in primetime. In the Pac 12, No.12 Oregon visits No.18 UCLA. A week ago this would have been a top-10 game. With both losing last week, it lost some luster.

In the SEC, No.14 Texas A&M will host No.3 Ole Miss, who arguably had the biggest win of them all last week, when the Rebels took down Alabama.

Below, has these game lines as they appear live, available up until the respective kickoff times on Saturday.
