We look at the biggest college football line moves of the past 24 hours. There's always a lot of jostling off the opening line as bookmakers try to find the right number for their college football odds.

College Football
119 La Tech/120 Rice- La Tech opened -10 on Sunday night and bet up to -13 on the college football odds board by Monday afternoon. It sat there until today, when sharp money started coming in on Rice. La Tech now at -11.


121 Wyoming/122 Utah State- Wyoming starting QB Cam Coffman was questionable, and now looks like he will be out. They will be going with freshman Nick Smith. Utah State opened -24 with those who opened early and -28 those who waited a few days. But sharp money has come in since then on the dog. Wyoming hasn’t been very good this season, but they have covered 4 in a row now. Utah State now -25.5 or -26.


123 South Florida/124 Navy- Navy opened -10, but money has come in on South Florida, who has covered the last 4 in a row. Navy is now -7.


125 Marshall/126 Charlotte- Sharp money has come in all week on Charlotte. Marshall opened -21, now at -16.5.


129 Mass/130 Ball State- Ball State opened -3, but sharp money started coming in on Mass yesterday. Now down to pick em.


133 Nebraska/134 Purdue- Nebraska opened -9.5, went to -10.5.  Nebraska starting QB Tommy Armstrong is out and the game came off the board. Nebraska went back up at -8.5, and still money showed on Purdue. Nebraska now at -7.5.


139 Mississippi/140 Auburn- Ole Miss opened -6, public and sharp money pushed it up to -7.5. Some sharp money came back on the dog. Ole Miss now -7.

157 Georgia Tech/158 Virginia- Ga Tech opened -4, public money took it up to -6.5. There is some sharp money coming back the other way but still a lot of money on the chalk. Ga Tech anywhere from -5.5 to -6.5.


161 Oklahoma/162 Kansas- Okla opened -37.5, public and a little sharp money pushed it up to -40, before there was some take back on the dog f. Oklahoma now -39.
