The Texas Longhorns were the hottest team in Las Vegas this week when the South Point sportsbook posted the first college football point spreads in town.

The Longhorns went from underdogs to favorites in their Week 2 clash with USC and attracted enough early action in their annual showdown with Oklahoma to cut the line in half.

Texas hosts the Trojans on Sept. 15. The Longhorns, who opened as 1-point underdogs, drew enough action in the first few hours to move the line to Texas -3.

The Longhorns, in their second season under coach Tom Herman, opened as a 12-point underdog to Oklahoma. That line quickly was bet down to Oklahoma -6. The Sooners and Longhorns meet Oct. 6.

"I'd call that a pretty big move," said Chris Andrews, veteran college football oddsmaker at the South Point. "I must have had Texas, Stanford and Oregon underrated. Every game involving those teams drew action."

Other notable opening point spreads include:

-- Alabama opened as a 7-point favorite over Auburn. The Iron Bowl is Nov. 24, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

-- Ohio State opened as a 9-point favorite over Michigan. The Buckeyes host the Wolverines on Nov. 24.

-- Notre Dame opened as a 1-point favorite at USC on Nov. 24. s-draws-interest-vegas-first-college-football-point-spreads- released
