WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO (August 29, 2006)—Although the 2006 college football season doesn’t kick off until later this week, the national champion and Heisman Trophy debates are already heating up. Adding fuel to the pre-season NCAA football hype, PinnacleSports.com today released updated odds on who will be crowned the nation’s top collegiate player and which team will capture the BCS National Championship.

The largest sports betting site on the Internet, PinnacleSports.com currently lists Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn as the pre-season favorite to become the Fighting Irish’s eighth Heisman Trophy winner at 3/1 odds. Oklahoma junior running back Adrian Peterson has been listed with the second best odds to win college football’s top honor at 4/1. Dual threat quarterback Troy Smith (9/1) will attempt to bring Ohio State it’s first Heisman Trophy since Eddie George in 1995, while teammates Michael Bush (12/1) and Brian Brohm (14/1) both hope to become Louisville’s first Heisman winner. Other leading candidates to be named college football’s most outstanding player include: West Virginia quarterback Steve Slaton (16/1); Florida signal caller Chris Leak (20/1); Cal running back Marshawn Lynch (21/1); Michigan running back Mike Hart (23/1); Ohio State wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. (23/1); Iowa quarterback Drew Tate (25/1) and Notre Dame tailback Darius Walker (26/1).

While all 119 Division I teams enter the new season on equal footing with championship aspirations, the oddsmakers at PinnacleSports.com believe only a handful stand any real chance of winning the BCS Championship Game on January 8th. In what’s certainly a surprise, the West Virginia Mountaineers are currently a 13/2 favorite to win the national championship mainly because of their relatively soft schedule and betting to date. Notre Dame is a slight underdog to capture their 14th national title at 7/1 odds, followed by top-ranked Ohio State at 15/2. Despite losing the last two Heisman Trophy winners and a number of other stars, PinnacleSports.com believes USC is a solid championship contender again this season, listing the Trojans at 8/1 to win another national title. The Chris Leak-led Florida Gators are 10/1 to bring a championship back to the Swamp, while reigning national champion Texas currently stands at 12/1 to repeat this year. Other teams that could be victorious in the January 8th BCS Championship Game include: Auburn (14/1), Oklahoma (14/1), Florida State (21/1), Miami (21/1), Louisville (24/1), LSU (26/1), California (28/1) and Michigan (29/1).

PinnacleSports.com also offers odds on which teams will win several of the major Division I conference championships as well as lines on total regular season wins by a number of college teams. In addition, the sportsbook has posted betting lines on every game taking place during the opening weekend of the season as well as a number of marquee match-ups taking place throughout the entire 2006 NCAA campaign.
