Tide blocks Tennessee upset
Tennesse was getting 14 points on the road against No. 1 Alabama on Saturday according to odds makers from online sportsbook SPORTSBETTING.com. 58 percent of the public bets went with Alabama, but the Volunteers covered in a 12-10 loss, and nearly won. Tennessee kicker Daniel Lincoln attempted a 44-yard field goal to end the game, but it was blocked by Alabama’s Terrence Cody to give the Tide the win. Tennessee had a betting line of +500 in the game.
Hawkeyes win on final play
Despite being unbeaten Iowa was a 2-point underdog at Michigan State on Saturday night. The Spartans had 81 percent of the public bets and led Iowa 13-9 in the final minute of the game, only to see Ricky Stanzi find Marvin McNutt for a 7-yard touchdown pass as time expired to give Iowa the win and cover the spread. Iowa is now 8-0 for the first time in school history.
Trojans survive late Oregon State rally
USC was a 21-point favorite at home against Oregon State, a team that had the Trojans number in recent history. 53 percent of public bets went with the Beavers, who found themselves down 42-23 in the fourth quarter and looking as if they may not cover. But, two scoring drives in the middle of the fourth got Oregon State within six of USC. The Trojans manage to hold off Oregon State for a 42-36 win, but the Beavers easily covered.
Tigers stun Miami
Miami was a 7-point favorite at home against ACC opponent, Clemson. The Hurricanes had 81 percent of the public bets in this game, but the Tigers were an issue for Miami from the opening kick. C.J. Spiller rushed for 81 yards and had 104 yards receiving with a touchdown to lead Clemson to a 40-37 overtime win over the Hurricanes. Clemson had a betting line of +170 for Saturday’s game.
