Although they fell short of the No. 1 BCS ranking and didn’t seal the deal on what could have been an undefeated season, the Alabama Crimson Tide rode the contributions of junior quarterback A.J. McCarron and the NCAA’s top running back tandem to a resounding National Championship. The best part? They have better college football odds than anyone of doing it all over again in 2014.

With at least McCarron and freshman T.J. Yeldon expected to be back on campus, the Tide have 5/1 odds of winning the 2013-14 BCS National Championship. When – or if – it’s confirmed that 1,322-yard rusher Eddie Lacy will be back in Tuscaloosa for a senior season next year, the number may climb even further.
The Tide, however, aren’t the only ones with high expectations for next fall. Second on the college football futures are the Oregon Ducks (8/1 NCAA odds), who very well could have taken their own turn in the National Championship game had it not been for a late-season slip up against the Stanford Cardinal in November.
Ohio State, too, with 17/2 odds of winning will be looking forward to next season – their first bowl-eligible campaign since NCAA sanctions stripped them of the opportunity to play when it matters most. Coming off an impressive unbeaten, albeit meaningless 2012-13 season, they’ll have more than enough momentum to earn a chance.
