Which team is favored to win the BCS National Title?

As we get ready to embark into another season of college football, already talk has begun about who is the favorite to win the BCS National Championship in 2012. Every major conference in college football this season has at least one team that has a legitimate chance to win a national title.

While the heavy favorites to win this season’s national title game play in major conference, there is one team that is in a mid-major conference that has a great opportunity to play for a national title if they can go undefeated.

Of course, if last season is any indication, the teams playing in the BCS National Championship game won’t be the heavy favorites at the start of the season.

Here is an early preview of the favorites to win the BCS National Championship.

Oklahoma 9/2

Landry-Jones-Oklahoma-Sooners

Landry-Jones-Oklahoma-Sooners

Oklahoma is stacked on Offense this season with Heisman Trophy candidate Landry Jones returning as quarterback. Last season, Jones threw for 4,718 yards and 38 touchdowns.  Oklahoma will be tested early with a tough non-conference game at Florida State on September 13th.   If they can win that game they have a good chance to go undefeated this season.

Alabama 11/2

They will have to play a very tough schedule which is typical being in the SEC.  This season their division (SEC West) will be the toughest division in college football.  They are loaded with talent and if they can go undefeated in their division then they will have a good chance of winning their second national championship in three years.

Oregon 12/1

The Ducks return their two offensive stars, quarterback Darron Thomas and running back LaMichael James.  Their first two games of the season might be their toughest stretch in 2011.  They play their first game of the season against LSU at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas and then play Nevada at home.  If they win those two games than going undefeated in the PAC 12 should be no problem.

Florida State 10/1

Jimbo Fisher has had some great recruiting classes since he has taken over for Bobby Bowden.  Christian Ponder is gone but new quarterback E.J. Manuel will have enough returning starters around him to make Florida State legit title contenders.  If they can manage to beat Oklahoma, than they will have an easy path to the BCS National Championship game playing in a weak ACC.

Boise State 14/1

They have a tough game in week one against Georgia but if they can win that game than an undefeated season should be manageable.  Kellen Moore returns for his senior season and he is one of the best quarterbacks in college football.  Last season Moore was amazing, throwing for 35 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions.

Florida 16/1

They will be guided by first year head coach Will Muschamp this season.  He brought to his staff one of the best offensive coordinators in Charlie Weis.  John Brantley will need to improve from 2010, where he threw more interceptions than touchdowns.  If there is anyone that can drastically improve a quarterback, it is Charlie Weis.

Stanford 16/1

Jim Harbaugh might have bolted for the NFL but their star quarterback decided stay at Stanford for his senior season.  Andrew Luck would have easily been the number one pick in this year’s NFL Draft but he opted to stay in college.  Luck is the favorite to win this season’s Heisman Trophy.  Stanford’s biggest obstacle to the BCS National Championship game will be the Oregon Ducks.

Wisconsin 20/1

Wisconsin’s odds of winning the national championship increased when Russell Wilson decided to join the Badgers this season.   With the addition of Wilson, the Badgers become the favorites to win the Big Ten this season.  With the nation’s best running back duo in James White and Montee Ball, the Badgers are genuine contenders to win it all.

Nebraska 25/1

They certainly have the defense to win a national championship this season returning seven starters from last season.  That defense is anchored by the nation’s best defensive lineman in Jared Crick.  If Taylor Martinez can play like he did before he got hurt than the Cornhuskers have a real good shot at not losing a game in their inaugural season in the Big Ten.
