One thing you can say in favor of Auburn and Tommy Tuberville: they have impeccable timing. Remember 2000, when Auburn was preparing to play Florida in Atlanta and Alabama stole the headlines for a few days by hiring Dennis Franchione? Yeah ... consider it payback.
In any case, I've said most of what I needed to say about that subject. For the best Tuberville-related commentary on the Web, read the JCCW, the Gold Mine and Jay Tate. Seriously, they're the best.
But, to business -- here are lines for this weekend's games, coming to us as always from NCAAFlines.com.
(N0te: Unfortunately, we do not have any lines for this weekend's Super 6 games, some of which will likely be of better quality and more fun to watch than many of these conference championships. The Leeds-Cordova game should be particularly good. And that starts today at 3.)
Louisville (+10.5) at Rutgers
MAC Championship at Ford Field
Buffalo (+15.5) vs. Ball St.
Pittsburgh (+3) at UConn
Navy (-11) at Army
USC (-33) at UCLA
Arkansas St. (+11) at Troy
South Florida (+7.5) at West Virginia
Arizona St. (+10.5) at Arizona
Conference USA Championship in Some Damn Place
East Carolina (+13) vs. Tulsa
Big XII Championship at Arrowhead Stadium
Missouri (+17.5) vs. Oklahoma
SEC Championship at the Georgia Dome
Alabama (+10) vs. Florida
(Note: I'm slightly surprised this line hasn't moved much this week. Not that I didn't expect Florida to be favored, but when it opened at 10.5, it seemed a little high and I anticipated it would move down. Apparently the gambling community doesn't agree.)
