Will the Oregon Ducks return to college football prominence under new head coach Willie Taggart? After a shocking 4-8 season last year, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has the Ducks’ season win total at 7.5, with money coming in on the over. Just moments after the updated lines were released on Sunday, the Over went from +130 to -105. Oregon opens the season against Southern Utah before playing two intriguing non-conference games: Home vs. Nebraska then traveling to Wyoming.
Alabama and Ohio State share the honor of highest win totals at 11, followed by USC and Wisconsin at 10.5 wins. But then there’s an interesting school sitting at 10…South Florida. The Bulls lost their head coach to the aforementioned Oregon Ducks, but return the AAC’s most dynamic playmaker in QB Quinton Flowers. South Florida’s non-conference opponents include San Jose State, Stony Brook, Illinois and UMass. Within the AAC schedule, they avoid SMU, Navy, and Memphis. One another notable win total from a non-Power 5 school is Boise State at 8.5 wins. Since 2002, the Broncos have finished with less than eight wins only once (2013). Boise State is still a strong 6/5 favorite to win the Mountain West, but perhaps a “down” year is ahead for the boys of the blue turf?
