College Bowl Game Lines observed some line changes on the upcoming College Bowl games for the first week of 2011, though a few remained steady.

The most noticeable line change was for the Cotton Bowl game between Texas A&M and LSU.  That one moved from -3 to -1 over the past week with LSU favored.

There was a slight move with the Sugar Bowl featuring Arkansas vs. Ohio State whereby the line for the Buckeyes had moved up a half point to -3.5 in recent days.

A number of the premier College Bowl games opened with 3 point lines, including the BCS National Championship between Oregon and Auburn.  That line has yet to move.

Virginia Tech vs. Stanford in the Orange Bowl likewise was holding steady a Stanford -3.

Wisconsin remained a 3-point underdog in the Rose Bowl vs. TCU.

The longest odds were posted for Connecticut vs. Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl.  Here the Sooners were 17-point favorites.  The odds on this game have yet to change.
