-- Favorites put together a 38-11 SU and 26-23 record against the spread

Luck of the Buckeyes:

Ohio State and Northwestern went back and forth in an entertaining Big 10 affair. The Buckeyes rallied from a 10-point deficit to take a 34-30 lead as 6 ½-point favorites with five minutes left. The last chance for the Wildcats to score deep in their own territory turned into a disaster for Northwestern backers, as a multitude of hook-and-laterals resulted in a loose ball in the end zone. The Buckeyes fell on the ball for a touchdown with no time remaining and cashed, 40-30.

American Dreams:

The bottom-tiered teams of the newly formed American Athletic Conference shocked bettors with several underdog covers. Temple, Memphis, SMU, and USF all cashed on Saturday in the 'dog role, while South Florida upended Cincinnati as home 'dogs for its first win on the season.

Close, but no SECigar:

Tennessee and Kentucky made late rallies as underdogs and managed covers, but the Volunteers fell in overtime as 13-point 'dogs to Georgia, while the Wildcats scored in garbage time to cover at South Carolina. Auburn continues to turn heads in the SEC West after downing Ole Miss as short home 'dogs, as the Tigers have a cupcake game this week against Western Carolina.

Another Chalky Call:

Four of the top teams in the ACC cruised to favorite victories inside the conference. Florida State, Clemson, Miami, and Virginia Tech all won by double-digits, as the four clubs are a combined 9-0 in ACC play. Meanwhile, N.C. State and Virginia each were tripped up as favorites, including an ugly home loss from the Cavaliers to Ball State.

Tiger Talk:

Every Sunday, Brian Edwards updates the VegasInsider.com Top 25. After watching the action this weekend, Baylor made the biggest jump from 14th to 9th. South Carolina saw the biggest drop, falling from 7th to 13rd in the VI rankings. Eight schools from the SEC reside in the VI Top 25, including Missouri and Auburn breaking through this week.
