Week 10 of the 2013 NCAA football betting season is in the books, and today, we're going to be taking a look at each of the Top 25 teams in the BCS rankings and see how they did from an ATS perspective in this go around this past week.
(Results in parentheses represent SU Result-ATS Result)
1: Alabama (Bye)
The Tide are ready for their biggest challenge of the year left remaining in all likelihood against LSU.
2: Oregon (Bye)
There are a few tests that are left for the Ducks, but their biggest is the one coming up this week against Stanford.
3: Florida State (W-W vs. Miami 41-14)
The Seminoles now have their second primetime blowout win against a Top 10 team this year after destroying Miami.
4: Ohio State (W-W vs. Purdue 56-0)
OSU was up 42-0 at halftime against the Boilers and never looked back, but it really doesn't matter for as long as the teams above it keep winning.
5: Stanford (Bye)
The Cardinal have a chance to become the first one-loss team in the land to really make an impact nationally if they can beat Oregon on Thursday.
6: Baylor (Bye)
After eight straight games as 17-point favorites or greater, the Bears are finally going to get tested against Oklahoma this week.
7: Miami (L-L vs. Florida State 41-14)
It's not all over for the Hurricanes yet, as they can still win the ACC, but they are out of the National Championship chase after getting crushed by FSU.
8: Clemson (W-W vs. Virginia 59-10)
Tajh Boyd went 24-for-29 for 377 yards and three scores against the Hoos in victory.
9: Missouri (W-W vs. Tennessee 31-3)
The Tigers could have just folded after losing for the first time two weeks ago, but they came out and looked like a Top 10 team against the Vols.
10: Oklahoma (Bye)
OU already ended one undefeated team's season. It can do it again this week against Baylor.
11: Auburn (W-W vs. Arkansas 35-17)
There's no excuse not to be 10-1 and a Top 10 team by the time the team hosts Bama in the Iron Bowl.
12: Texas A&M (W-W vs. UTEP 57-7)
The Aggies didn't even score a point in the fourth quarter and still blew out the Miners.
13: LSU (Bye)
Remember the last time the Bayou Bengals stormed Tuscaloosa? Don't be shocked if it happens again!
14: South Carolina (W-W vs. Mississippi State 34-16)
A 17-0 third quarter was what really got the Gamecocks past the Bulldogs on Saturday.
15: Texas Tech (L-L vs. Oklahoma State 52-34)
The Red Raiders were undefeated two weeks ago, but they are going to end up finishing in the bottom half of the Big XII race when it's said and done.
16: Fresno State (W-L vs. Nevada 41-23)
It's another game where Fresno State posted a victory but not a cover against Nevada.
17: Northern Illinois (W-W vs. Massachusetts 63-19)
The Huskies dropped 63 on the Minutemen on Saturday, but they aren't really going anywhere in the BCS.
18: Oklahoma State (W-W vs. Texas Tech 52-34)
These Cowboys might be set to go on a bowl ban for the SI investigation, but they might get to the BCS before the NCAA can react.
19: Louisville (Bye)
The Cards were off this week, but they have got to hope that UCF loses eventually, and perhaps twice to get back into the BCS bowl game discussion.
20: UCLA (W-L vs. Colorado 45-23)
Outside of Brett Hundley, the rest of the Bruins only had a total of 70 yards against a bad Colorado team.
21: Michigan (L-L vs. Michigan State 29-6)
The Wolverines probably won't be seen in the Top 25 again this year after getting crippled by Michigan State.
22: Michigan State (W-W vs. Michigan 29-6)
The blowout win for the Spartans was big. They're clearly in the Rose Bowl chase at this point in spite of a horrid offensive season.
23: UCF (Bye)
The Knights can perhaps effectively win the AAC this week if they can knock off Houston, perhaps their biggest challengers left to the automatic BCS spot.
24: Wisconsin (W-W vs. Iowa 28-9)
The Badgers were only up 7-6 at halftime and 14-9 at the end of the first half against Iowa, but they ultimately got the job done.
25: Notre Dame (W-L vs. Navy 38-34)
A Tarean Folston TD run with 3:47 left won the game for the Golden Domers against Navy.
