2012 BCS National Championship Odds: Stanford 25 To 1, Cal 100 To 1

It's not too early for college football fans to look forward to the 2011 season. Only 200+ days to go! And Vegas gambling sites are already looking ahead to next year. The Oklahoma Sooners are the big favorites with a lot of returning starters and a watered-down Big 12 to play against at 7 to 2 odds; the Alabama Crimson Tide are on their heels, with the Florida St. Seminoles also high up in the mix. The Oregon Ducks have the best odds of any Pac-12 team at 12-1.

The Stanford Cardinal aren't too far behind; despite some key personnel losses along the offensive line, Stanford figures to be at least a dark horse candidate thanks to their returning quarterback in Andrew Luck, and at 25-1 they seem to be at the right place. They will have a puncher's chance to beat Oregon next year, since the Ducks come to their house in Palo Alto.

The California Golden Bears are much further behind that pace, but at 100-1 they're tied in third place with the Utah Utes and the Arizona Wildcats for best national championship odds. Perhaps Vegas thinks Cal isn't as bad as some presume they'll be next year.
