The perennially-powerful Ohio State Buckeyes went 13-1 last season and have won three straight Big Ten conference crowns and are favored to do so again behind the gifts of Heisman Trophy-contending quarterback Justin Fields. No. 2 favorite Wisconsin went 10-4 last season but lost to Ohio State in the conference title tilt 34-21 last season to record their fourth championship game loss in the last six seasons since going back-to-back in 2011 and 2012.

Penn State is coming off an encouraging 11-2 campaign while Iowa reached the double-digit win mark by going 10-3. Minnesota will look to improve on its fantastic 11-2 mark while Michigan will look to reach the double-digit win mark after going 9-4 a year ago. Michigan State has a new head coach in Mel Tucker as the Spartans look to improve on their discouraging 7-6 mark in 2019. Last but not least, Indiana will be looking to build on its encouraging eight-win season from a year ago.

Pac-12 Championship Odds

  • Oregon +180
  • USC +200
  • Washington +350
  • Utah +650
  • Arizona State +1000

  • UCLA +2500
  • Arizona +3300
  • California +1500
  • Stanford +1400
  • Oregon State +6600

The Pac-12 is scheduled to kick off its regular season on November 7. A year ago, then, No. 5 Oregon picked up its third Pac-12 title by routing then, No. 16 Utah 37-15 in last season’s conference championship game. The Ducks are the favorites to win the Pac-12 again after going 12-2 last season, although the Ducks will be breaking in a new starting quarterback following Justin Herbert’s departure. USC is the No. 2 pick to win their first Pac-12 title since 2017 despite going a disappointing 8-5 a year ago. Utah will look to  improve on its fine, 11-3 mark while Cal, Washington and Arizona State all look to approach double digit victories after going an identical 8-5 in 2019.

Mountain West Championship Odds

  • Boise State -190
  • San Diego State +400
  • Air Force +450
  • Wyoming +1400
  • Colorado State +1600
  • Fresno State +2000
  • Hawaii +4000
  • Nevada +5000
  • Utah State +5000
  • New Mexico +10000
  • San Jose State +10000
  • UNLV +10000

The Mountain West Conference will kick off its regular season this coming weekend. Boise State hosts Utah State in what looks like the top matchup of their opening slate of games. Since the league created a conference championship game in 2013, six different teams have won Mountain West titles, most recently, Boise State. The Broncos went 12-2 a year ago and took out 10-5 Hawaii 31-10 in the conference title tilt. Air Force went 11-2 a year ago while San Diego State went 10-3. Wyoming will look to reach double digits in victories after going 8-5 last season.

MAC Championship Odds

  • Buffalo +240
  • Ohio +350
  • Miami-Ohio +600
  • Toledo +600
  • Western Michigan +600

  • Norther Illinois +1200
  • Kent State +2000
  • Eastern Michigan +5000
  • Akron +10000
  • Bowling Green +10000

The MAC is schedule to get its 2020 regular season underway in Week 10 on Wednesday, Nov. 4 with conference champ Miami-Ohio hosting Ball State. Believe it or not, five different teams have claimed the MAC conference championship in the last five seasons. Last season, Miami-Ohio beat Central Michigan to win their first MAC title since 2003. Now though, Ohio is the No. 2 favorite after going 7-6 a year ago and losing four times at home. The Buffalo Bulls are the prohibitive favorites after going 8-5. Central Michigan also won eight games (8-6) while Western Michigan and Kent State both finished at 7-6.
