COLLEGE FOOTBALL BETTING TRENDS: The Longhorns are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games following an ATS loss, 5-0 ATS in their last six games versus Pac-12 opponents, and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games on grass. The Ducks are also 1-4 ATS in their last five versus a team with a winning record and 0-4 against the number in their last four games overall. One other thing to consider is the motivation factor for both teams. Oregon is used to playing in a BCS bowl so who knows if it will get up to take on Texas in a pre-New Years bowl, while Texas will be looking to send off Mack Brown with a victory. Take the points.
