(18) Rutgers at Pittsburgh (-2, 43.5)

There’s a lot at stake for this Big East conference clash. Rutgers can clinch at least a share of its first Big East title with a win at Pittsburgh on Saturday. And Pitt needs to beat Rutgers and win at South Florida next week to become bowl-eligible. Rutgers has been relying on its defense - ranked fourth in the country in points allowed - all season, and that was the case in last week's 10-3 victory over Cincinnati. The Scarlet Knights, who allow 12.5 points per game, had a shutout going until the Bearcats kicked a field goal with 11 seconds remaining. Rutgers is 7-1 ATS in its last eight overall and a perfect 4-0 ATS in its last four road games.

(5) Oregon at (15) Oregon State (9.5, 65)

Total still moving on this game up to 66.5 in some spots

Oregon’s perfect season was derailed in overtime by Stanford on Nov. 17 and now the Ducks have to beat Oregon State and have UCLA knock out Stanford to reach the conference championship game. The Ducks had scored 42 points or more in 13 straight games – an NCAA record – before tallying just 14 in the loss to Stanford. The Beavers have a stout defense that ranks second in the Pac-12 in scoring defense (18.6) and has intercepted 17 passes this season. The Ducks are 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games.

Rutgers can get a share of the Big East title with a win today---same thing happens last year against UConn--

With an opportunity to win a share of their first Big East championship against an out-of-bowl-contention Huskies team in the regular-season finale, the Scarlet Knights had been humiliated, 40-22.

It was one of the most devastating defeats in the history of a program all too familiar with such demoralizing losses.

“That bus ride home from Connecticut was probably the lowest point of our careers here,” Jones said, referring to the senior class. “I’ve been here with these guys for a long time, and that bus ride was tough.
