Given the fact that Alabama and Oregon have been 1-2 in the Associated Press poll for five straight weeks and in the coaches’ poll for four, it’s no surprise that, according to one wagering website, the two remain on a collision course for an early January meeting in Pasadena.

In the latest set of odds released by Bovada.lv, the Tide is a 9/5 favorite to win the 2013 BCS title while the Ducks sit at 15/4.  Those odds are slightly better than they were two weeks ago, when UA was sitting at 2/1 and the Ducks at 4/1.

Ohio State, despite critics questioning its schedule as well as injuries, has climbed a bit to 11/2 from mid-September’s 13/2.  Stanford also sees better odds this time around, going from 14/1 to the current 11/1.

After climbing steadily in the preseason and into the 2013 season, Clemson dropped from 12/1 to 14/1 while ACC rival Florida State remained steady at 12/1.

Despite the fact that it still controls its own destiny by winning out, LSU tumbled from 14/1 to 25/1 following its tough, three-point loss to Georgia.  The Bulldogs, on the other hand, moved from 22/1 to 18/1, the best odds of any one-loss team.

Thanks to wins their past two games that almost weren’t, Michigan is now at 28/1.  The Wolverines were at 33/1 in the preseason before moving to 16/1 in mid-September.

Northwestern and Missouri are unbeaten, but still come in at 100/1 and 300/1, respectively.

    How is Michigan even on this list?

    When you struggle with the Zips and UConn, you’ve got problems.

    Alabama? I’ll take that bet. Provided Corey Harris will loan me the money.

    I wish Oregon would play someone. I would hate to see them lose another BCS bowl game.
