Updated BCS National Championship odds from BetOnline.com

Five more days until the big one.

The anticipation has been building for over a month, but game week has finally arrived as the top-ranked LSU Tigers travel to Tuscaloosa on Saturday to take on the No. 2-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Tide opened up as a 6-point favorite for Saturday’s SEC showdown, but most shops around Vegas—as well as those offshore—have the game currently listed at Alabama -5.

Which brings us to our weekly BCS Championship odds update, courtesy of Dave Mason and our friends at BetOnline.com. Take note that Alabama and LSU currently have the lowest odds of any college football team to win the title.

And take special note of the fact that Stanford is now listed at 6-1 to win the championship after Saturday’s overtime thriller against the Trojans from USC.

I’m not going to lie…I still like Oregon at 22-1.
