NCAA Football Odds: LSU to Cap Campaign with Chick-fil-A Bowl Appearance

Betting On The 2012 Chick-Fil-A Bowl





If you had asked the LSU Tigers what bowl game they would be playing in last summer, their instinct would have been to say the National Championship. Coming off of an appearance in the finale the year prior and hitting preseason with some of the loftiest college football odds around, it seemed inevitable.


That’s why we don’t announce winners off of speculation on paper.

On New Year’s Eve the No. 8-ranked SEC giant will look to salvage what can be considered no more than a disappointing campaign in the Chick-fil-A Bowl against the No. 12 Clemson Tigers.


A midseason loss to upstart Florida in October, paired with a later loss to rival Alabama all but sealed LSU’s fate as a good-but-not-great perennial powerhouse – this year at least. Sure wins over ranked threats in the SEC will give them an advantage over Clemson in their postseason matchup, but don’t think for a second that a win here would be anywhere near as satisfying for head coach Les Miles as another ticket to the BCS Championship would be.


Frustration aside, however, what’s left is an SEC juggernaut favored heavily on early college football odds when lined up against the best a relatively toothless ACC has to offer. What’s more, while Clemson may have climbed as high as they have in the standings, they failed to beat a Top 25 team at any point in the season (finish 0-2).
