Positive Movers and Shakers
One of the biggest movements on the college football odds board was made by Clemson, shortening from +800 to +330 at Bet365. This move was the result of a convincing 23-13 win over Florida State at home. Clemson maintains its perfect 9-0 SU record on the season. Alabama (8-1 SU) also shortened from +550 to +400 after putting on a convincing show against Louisiana State, winning 30-16.

Oklahoma improved to 8-1 with a 52-16 win over ISU, marking their fourth win In a row after the upset by Texas. They shorten dramatically from +2500 to +1000, a week ahead of a date with Baylor. Finally, Notre Dame are down to +1200 from +2800 and Utah are down from a whopping +10000 to +4000 in the space of a week. Notre Dame (8-1) have won four straight since their lone defeat to Clemson and Utah have won two straight since losing to USC.

Negative Movers and Shakers
Michigan State slipped to their first defeat in 2015, forcing their odds to rocket up from +1400 to +6600. Although they’ve been trending negatively over the last four weeks (See Table 1), this is the biggest move experienced in their case. LSU, TCU and Stanford all saw negative movement as well at the close of week 10, albeit the latter’s movement was marginal. Both LSU and TCU were losers in week 10 forcing their odds to more than double. LSU lost to Alabama 30-16 and TCU lost to Oklahoma State 49-29. Finally, Ohio State saw marginal movement from +250 to +260. OSU remain undefeated on the season and most SBR posters' pick to win it all.
