(2:23 PT) Teddy Covers just pointed out Pinnacle (leading indicator shop) only one dealing -17.5 with Cincinnati. Remaining books at -17 but likely not for long.
(2:22 PT) Oregon not messing around as they go for two and convert after opening drive TD against Washington State.
(2:12 PT) Rob Veno passes along Pitt over 21.5 (-120) 2nd half
- Pittsburgh 2nd Halves have totaled between 24-38 points in all their games
(2:10 PT) Tim Trushel and Brent Crow on Pitt +1/2 2nd half
(2:05 PT) Brent Crow passes along Clemson -1 2nd half and Alabama -6.5 2nd half
(2:04 PT) Helmut passes along: Cal -3 (-125) second half
(2 PT) Ultimate backdoor cover! Colorado State goes 92 yards on 16 plays and scores with 45 second left to get under the +24.5. Air Force wins 49-27!
(1:55 PT) Wyoming, Colorado State and UNLV currently down a combined 114-20...with more than a full games worth of time left to play in the three games.
(1:45 PT) Michigan State is averaging 10 yards per play against Michigan but only up 14-10.
(1:25 PT) South Carolina rolling! 21-3. Garcia 8-for-8. Spurrier will probably replace him at halftime.
(1:20 PT) Words cannot describe this box score
(1:08 PT) Betfair stock news - IPO covered after one day
(1:04 PT) In case you missed it, interesting take on SEC bye weeks and Alabama

(11:40 am PT) Here are a couple of late afternoon/night Betting Previews by the Sportsmemo Handicappers. Tulsa at SMU - Helmut Sports, Texas A&M vs. Arkansas - Marty Otto, USC at Stanford - Teddy Covers
(11:35 am PT) From Rob Veno: Observation for down the road...VT HC Frank Beamer seems to be developing a pattern of reluctancy where QB Taylor's rushing input to the offense is concerned. Beamer cuts Taylor loose in "times of need" situations and then removes that part of the offense when he feels secure. VT is very diverse and dynamic when all facets of their scheme are threats so it will be interesting to see if he's simply saving the entire 60 minute package for games of importance down the road.
(11:25 am PT) From Andrew Lange: This supposed injury to Wyoming QB Austyn Carta-Samuels is getting weirder by the day. Yesterday, through an unidentified source, it was discovered that Carta-Samuels didn't make the trip to TCU. Supposedly, he wasn't cleared to play by doctors. Why wouldn't you report that to the local media? And how about this: UW closed its practices to the media Tuesday. Last season, and through the first five games this season, media were allowed to be at practice on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Christensen also announced, through the release, that practices will be closed for the rest of the season. Based on what I know how how other schools operate, this whole thing sounds very fishy.
(11:15 am PT) Colorado State looks ready to play as Air Force goes 77 yards on 4 plays in 1:30 to score first of what expects to be a slew of touchdowns.
(10:55 am PT) Teddy passes along: Really wanted to get at Texas Tech in the second half, but the betting market is ahead of the curve on this one -- adjusted game line Red Raiders -7; doesn't fit into my value equation.
(10:50 am PT) From Tim Trushel: Georgia Under 23.5 2nd half. Mark Richt and everybody in the entire state of Georgia loves the Dooley family. Now they don't love him to the point of losing a game to Tennessee, but they certainly will not embarrass the Vols. UT has struggled to score in second halves and with Georgia pulling back the reigns we'll go under.
(10:40 am PT) Tim Trushel sends over: Virignia Tech under 27 (@ CRIS), 26.5 good as well.
(10:36 am PT) Teddy Covers and Tim Trushel send over: Ohio State Under 24.5 2nd half
(10:35 am PT) Diamond Dave Shinskie taking advantage of a second chance: 7-of-21, 76 yards, 54.2 QB ratings.
(10:30 am PT) Fairway Jay sends over: Illinois +5 Illinois holding strong yard edges and Penn State just 3 first downs and still struggling to move ball
(10:26 am PT) Erin Rynning sends over: Wisconsin -10 2nd half
(10:35 am PT) Minnesota actually outgained Wisconsin 163-156 yards. Badgers up 14-9.
(10:18 am PT) Syracuse/USF QBs = 9-for-22, 126 yards, 4 sacks...yuck.
(10:03 am PT) Indiana outgained so far 219-31...Ohio State's defense a little bit better than Michigan. Indiana netted 568 yards last week.
(10:02 am PT) South Florida will have to run the football. In the first quarter they had 20 offensive plays. They ran the ball on 12 of those plays. On the eight pass attempts they had two sacks, one interception and just four receptions. BJ Daniels will have to run the football. Syracuse and South Florida were a combined 1-of-7 on third down conversion.
(10 am PT) How about this for winning tradition. This is the first meeting since 1906 between Georgia and Tennessee in which both teams are sub .500. Here are some things that were invented that decade when that game took place. Dawgs up 17-0 after 1 quarter.

Thanks to Tim Trushel for coming up with the idea!
