A 1-2 ATS mark on the games with the biggest line moves early last week, hitting on Temple (-20.5) but missing on Tulsa (-22.5) and Texas (-3). Here are the three top Week 14 college football line moves at SBR's best sportsbooks.

No. 10 Oklahoma State At No. 9 Oklahoma (-11)

It's the annual regular-season ending Bedlam game between these rivals, both coming off a bye week, with the Sooners opening as 14-point favorites on college football odds. Keep in mind that this is the last season the Big 12 will be without a conference championship game so the winner here will be claimed the 2016 regular-season champion and head to the Sugar Bowl. What's interesting is that the Big 12 isn't going to divisions next year when it adds the title game so in a situation like this, OSU and Oklahoma could play in the regular-season finale and then against the next week in the Big 12 Championship Game if they are the top two teams as they are currently. It sure looks like the Big 12 will be shut out of the College Football Playoff for the second time in three years. Oklahoma actually moved down one spot to No. 9 in Tuesday's new rankings, while OSU stayed put. There are a few Sooners injuries to be aware of. Linebacker and team captain Jordan Evans should be available to play after injuring his hamstring last time out, but cornerback Will Johnson is likely to sit. Oklahoma routed OSU in Stillwater last year 58-23 to win the Big 12 title. Baker Mayfield threw for two scores and ran for one. Mayfield is the nation's highest-rated QB this year. The Pokes' Mason Rudolph is No. 11. There should be plenty of points in this one.

 Baylor At No. 16 West Virginia (-17.5)

The Mountaineers opened as 14.5-point favorites for this Big 12 game. This one doesn't mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. Baylor is in a free-fall in losing five straight games for the first time since 2007 and might name a new head coach to replace interim Jim Grobe not long after this game -- the school is focused on Cal's Sonny Dykes, who is from Texas. True freshman Zach Smith makes this third start at quarterback for Baylor with Seth Russell out for the season. Smith is 57-for-91 for 635 yards, six touchdowns and four picks. This program isn't going to be very relevant nationally for a while in the wake of all the off-field problems and recruits staying away in droves. If the new coach is Dykes, he has major work to do. This could be the final game for WVU coach Dana Holgorsen as there's talk he's not happy there and could head to either the University of Houston or Oregon. The Mountaineers have had a nice bounce-back season at 9-2, only losing to the two Big 12 Oklahoma schools. There's nothing WVU can do to earn a New Year's Six bowl bid. These schools have split four all-time meetings as conference foes, with the home team winning them all. They have combined for 416 points in those games.

No. 1 Alabama Vs. No. 15 Florida (+24)

The Tide opened as 21.5-point favorites for the SEC Championship Game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta -- this game will move to the Atlanta Falcons' new Mercedes-Benz Stadium down the road next year. It's pretty amazing how little respect that the East Division champion Gators are getting. But then you look at their schedule and see only one quality win: Nov. 19 in a makeup game at LSU -- and the Tigers should have taken that one but couldn't punch it in from the 1-yard line twice at the end of the game. UF was dominated last week in a 31-13 loss at Florida State. Florida also is as beaten up as any team in the country with for sure ruled out: QB Luke Del Rio (shoulder), linebackers Alex Anzalone (arm) and Jarrad Davis (ankle), defensive ends Bryan Cox Jr. (ankle) and Jordan Sherit (leg), center Cam Dillard (knee), and safeties Marcus Maye (arm) and Jaewon Taylor (arm). Del Rio was the team's starting QB but has missed a few weeks. Davis is UF's best defender. A few other guys also are questionable. Jim McElwain listed more than a dozen injured players for this week. Amazing. A Gators upset would send them to Sugar Bowl as the SEC champions. More likely, a loss has UF headed to the Outback Bowl. The Tide just keep trucking along and will make the College Football Playoff even with a loss. I do think UF can stay within 21 with a good defense. I am hoping for another half-point move to 24.5.
