The Challenger

Ohio State has the next-best odds behind 'Bama to win the national championship at 11/2. Quarterback J.T. Barrett completed 20-of-35 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 61 yards and an additional score in Thursday's 49-21 win over Indiana. The Buckeyes have a stiff Week 2 challenge on Saturday when they host Oklahoma at 7:30PM ET. Ohio State is currently a 7.5-point favorite.

The Rest of the Top 5

After receiving a scare from Western Michigan in their season-opener, the USC Trojans are 8/1 to win the national championship. Redshirt sophomore Sam Darnold completed 22-of-33 passes for 289 yards and two interceptions in a 49-31 win over the Broncos. The two teams were tied midway through the fourth quarter before the Trojans eventually pulled away. USC will take on Stanford on Saturday night at 8:30PM ET. The Cardinal has an advantage of playing two weeks ago so it should be well rested.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma is 14/1 to win the national championship after waxing UTEP in Week 1 and Penn State rounds out the top 5 in terms of the odds at 15/1.
