No Rainbow in the Dark for Longhorns

It seems everybody is a Texas fan these days. Is that rocker Ronnie James Dio flashing the "Hook 'em Horns" sign? Well, we have news for all of you on the Texas bandwagon. The Longhorns might have the longest winning streak in Division IA at 20, but they are not favored to repeat their title feat. In fact, they once again are regarded as second-class citizens to that dreaded rival up Interstate 35. According to lines posted at Betting Express, Texas is 12-1 to win the 2007 BCS title. The favorite? Ohio State at 5-1, followed by Notre Dame and — you guess it — Oklahoma at 6-1. USC is listed at 7-1. If you are into longshots, take a look at Oregon State and Brigham Young at 500-1, or better yet, Nevada Las Vegas at 1000-1.
