The latest 2011 BCS National Championship odds from Bodog are kind to the team that won the Red River Rivalry last Saturday in Dallas. For the Oklahoma Sooners' victims, the Texas Longhorns, these numbers show just how far away a national title might be.
Odds to win the 2011-2012 BCS ChampionshipAlabama 7/4
Boise State 10/1
Oklahoma State 12/1
Georgia Tech 50/1
West Virginia 50/1
The Sooners come in second to the Alabama Crimson Tide and ahead of LSU, ranked No. 1 in the Week 7 AP Poll, with lofty 3 to 1 odds. Texas' odds are more than 40 times longer, and it makes sense: the Longhorns would have to run the table in a Big 12 that suddenly seems packed with talent, hope for an Oklahoma loss, and hope that other teams ahead of them lose, too.
