Texas Christian University Odds to Win 2009 BCS Championship

Say what? Unranked Texas Christian University not only beat Brigham Young University Thursday night, they pummeled them.

Now it's time to start thinking TCU and the 2009 BCS Championship. The payout: A cool $2500 for every $100 bet at Sportsbook.com. TCU is offered under the "field" category.

BYU can stop worrying about reaching the BCS. TCU made sure of that in an ironic twist of revenge.

Andy Dalton threw for two touchdowns, receiver Jeremy Kerley became a running threat and TCU beat the ninth-ranked Cougars 32-7 on Thursday night, snapping their 16-game winning streak that was the longest in major college football.

When the Cougars were last in Fort Worth two years ago, they snapped TCU's 13-game winning streak that was then the nation's longest.

BYU (6-1, 2-1 Mountain West) never had a chance this time, not with Kerley, a former high school quarterback, taking direct snaps and running all over the place for the Frogs (7-1, 4-0) and their smothering top-ranked defense.

Gambling911.com was left stunned after picking BYU, and with good reason. All stats and trends pointed to BYU win. Not to happen. File this one under upset.

A lot of people were betting this game too.
