It’s not often that you get a Game of the Century these days, but that’s what Georgia and Tennessee are up against this weekend in a classic (AP) 1 vs. 2 matchup on the Week 10 college football schedule.
With an undefeated record on the line, AP No. 2 Tennessee takes the nation’s top offense on the road against defending national champion and AP No. 1 ranked Georgia, one of the sport’s premier defenses.
The winner should win the SEC East and represent the division in Atlanta for the conference championship, as well as a berth in this season’s College Football Playoff.
That’s not the only SEC matchup featuring ranked teams: No. 6 Alabama travels after a bye week to face a resurgent No. 10 LSU in a game with huge West Division implications. Bama has no margin for error after one loss to the Vols and cannot afford another this season.
Here are the current betting odds for the most important college football games on the Week 10 schedule this weekend.
Week 10 college football odds, lines, and point spreads
Game lines are provided by SI Sportsbook, and rankings are based on the College Football Playoff poll.
No. 1 Tennessee takes on No. 3 Georgia (-8.5, 66)
Georgia has won five straight against the Vols, but this isn’t just any old Vols team: it leads the nation in total offense, has a Heisman Trophy contender in quarterback Hendon Hooker, and can score from anywhere on the field. This season, UT is looking to break losing streaks, and everything is on the line.
No. 23 Texas (-3) vs. No. 13 Kansas State (-54.5)
The Longhorns lost at Oklahoma State two weeks ago behind a forgettable performance from Quinn Ewers, but K-State just destroyed that same Cowboy team, 48-0, and has found a real rhythm on offense as it moves into second place in the Big 12 title chase.
No. 6 Alabama vs. No. 10 LSU (-13.5, 56)
After a bye week, the Crimson Tide face an LSU team that has been flying under the radar since the Week 1 loss, but has quietly put together a formidable attack behind Jayden Daniels, the dynamic quarterback who has 21 combined touchdowns and leads this team in rushing.
Notre Dame hosts No. 4 Clemson (-3.5, 44)
We’re still not sure what Notre Dame is in Marcus Freeman’s first season, but whatever it is, it’s good against ACC teams, having already defeated UNC and Syracuse this season while playing its best offense. Clemson’s defensive line is a brick wall, and while DJ Uiagalelei’s returns are certainly better than last season, the quarterback has still been up and down week to week.
Wake Forest (-4, 54) visits No. 22 NC State
The absence of Devin Leary has reduced the Wolfpack’s offensive output predictably, but this is still one of the more physical defenses in the ACC, making it difficult for Sam Hartman, who threw two pick-sixes among eight total turnovers in an ugly loss at Louisville last week.
Washington hosts No. 24 Oregon State (-4.5, 54)
The Beavers, who were recently ranked, travel to Seattle as underdogs against a Huskies offense that can still move.
Texas A&M vs. Florida (-3.5, 55.5)
The Aggies’ offense has been notoriously incapable of scoring this season, but the unit appeared more assured with Conner Weigman at the helm in a close loss to Ole Miss last week.
North Carolina (-7, 59.5) visits Virginia
With the help of quarterback Drake Maye, the Tar Heels are poised to make a run at the ACC and a New Year’s Bowl.
No. 2 Ohio State vs. Northwestern (-38, 57.5)
With one of college football’s best quick-strike offenses, the Buckeyes could cover this spread by halftime.
Kansas hosts No. 18 Oklahoma State (-1.5, 64.5)
After a 48-0 loss at Kansas State, the Cowboys are back to square one, facing an uphill climb back into the Big 12 title race.
No. 8 Oregon vs. Colorado (-31.5, 62.5)
Granted, the competition hasn’t always been stellar, but the Ducks have won seven straight games and scored more than 41 points in each of those victories since the season opener against Georgia.
Arkansas Liberty (-14, 64.5)
The oddsmakers favor the Hogs, who are on a 2-0 run after dropping three straight, over the 7-1 Flames, who are one point away from being undefeated after a one-point loss to Wake Forest.
