I'll get right down to it, the weather should be fine for Saturday's game. 54 degrees and minimal rain chances at kickoff. Having sat under the fire hose that was the Fort Worth sky on Friday, this is much appreciated. Anyway, it's #HexTex week, everyone. Win this, and the Bears will have their fourth ten-win season in five years. WATTBA.
Per Vegas Insider, the Bears opened as three touchdown favorites over the Longhorns. As of this writing, the line has moved slightly to Baylor (-20.5). Given that there aren't enough six win teams to fill all the bowls, a fifth win from the Horns could conceivably put them in a bowl game. Baylor, on the other hand, is almost certainly headed to the Sugar Bowl with a win. New Years in N'awlins? Yes, please.
Some other notable lines:
WVU (-5.5) at KSU - The Snydercats need a win here to confirm bowl eligibility
Temple at Houston (-7)
USC at Stanford (-4)
Florida at Alabama (-17.5) - This line has jumped up from -12. RIP Florida.
UNC at Clemson (-5.5)
Michigan State (-4.5) at Iowa
