As the season hurtles towards the business end, the field conspicuously narrows: Oklahoma was impressive in winning the Big 12, while Alabama and Clemson continue to lead the title race.

Iowa and Michigan State are still in play but on a collision course and Stanford and North Carolina are dangerous floaters still in the hunt. Finally, former top favourites Ohio State are down but not out.

The Conference Championships round will determine the four teams that make it out of the respective conference’s to the playoffs.

Positive Movers and Shakers
Since week 12, Alabama took over top spot on the college football odds board, leapfrogging Ohio State to the enviable position. They’ve maintained that favourable spot and their football odds have shortened in proportion from week to week – from +250 at bet365 in week 12 to their current price tag of +160.

Another facet of their favorable estimation is the significant edge over the rest of the field. Clemson, second overall favourites trail at +300 football odds at bet365. It’s worth noting that sportsbooks such a 5Dimes, BetOnline and Heritage all have Oklahoma State ahead of Clemson on their shortlist of favorites, with football odds trading under +300 unanimously.

Negative Movers and Shakers
Ohio State’s dramatic fall from grace began on the heels of a loss to Michigan State, which upended their playoff bid. A last-gasp field goal was all it took for Michigan State to win 17-14 and, in turn, put a damper on an otherwise perfect season by Ohio State.

Ohio State are trending negatively, moving from +3300 football odds to +4000 over the course of the last fortnight. In all likelihood, their chances to win the national championship are all but done.
