Long odds

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

The Ra­zor­backs have been as­signed odds of 500 to 1 of win­ning the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off na­tional cham­pi­onship by Bo­vada of Las Ve­gas.

Arkansas, which was given 250 to 1 odds to win the ti­tle on Jan. 10, is grouped in with 11 other teams at 500 to 1, in­clud­ing Bay­lor, Ken­tucky, Mis­sis­sippi State, Mis­souri and South Carolina.

The Ra­zor­backs have the eighth-best odds among SEC teams. Alabama is at 12 to 5, the best odds in the coun­try, fol­lowed in the top five by USC (6 to 1), Ohio State (13 to 2), Florida State (15 to 2) and 16-1 for Michi­gan, Ok­la­homa and Penn State.

Odds for other SEC teams: Auburn (20 to 1), Ge­or­gia and LSU (25 to 1), Florida (33 to 1), Ten­nes­see (75 to 1) and Texas A&M (150 to 1). Ole Miss, which had been 100 to 1 on Jan. 10, has been taken off the board due to Coach Hugh Freeze’s sud­den res­ig­na­tion in July. Van­der­bilt is also off the board.
