College football odds, lines, schedule for Week 14: Michigan, Georgia favored on Championship Saturday

Oddsmakers have announced the odds and lines for College Football Championship Saturday

The regular season is over and now the schedule moves towards Championship Saturday and, from there to Selection Sunday for the national playoff semifinal.

USC may have helped settle the College Football Playoff picture by losing the Pac-12 Championship Game against Utah, which would appear to allow Ohio State to move back into the semifinal picture. 

Georgia appears to be a lock for the semifinal even if it were to lose to LSU in the SEC Championship Game, although almost no one is predicting that will happen.

As do Michigan and TCU, who most analysts believe will quality for the final four despite what happens in their games on Saturday.

Where do things stand ahead of Championship Week? Let's take a look at the game lines, according to SI Sportsbook.

Power Five Conference Championships

Big 12 Championship: TCU (-1.5, 61) vs. Kansas State. If there's a team of destiny this season, it could be TCU, which has overcome several slow first-half starts to stay undefeated, including a midseason tilt with K-State, which had to field its third-string quarterback because of injuries. Win, and TCU is in in the College Football Playoff.

Big Ten Championship: Michigan (-16.5, 52) vs. Purdue. The second-biggest line of the week belongs to the Wolverines, fresh off a dominant win at Ohio State, and possibly already having clinched a berth in the College Football Playoff, regardless of what happens in Indy. Purdue slogged its way to the top of the heap in the weird Big Ten West race and has a passing game that can make this interesting, led by quarterback Aidan O'Connell.

ACC Championship: Clemson (-7.5, 64) vs. North Carolina. This was supposed to be a play-in game for the College Football Playoff before both these teams dropped two games late in the season: Clemson to Notre Dame and unranked South Carolina and UNC to Georgia Tech and NC State. Still, there's a trip to a good New Year's bowl game on the line here.

SEC Championship: Georgia (-17.5, 52) vs. LSU. Some of the luster was taken off this game after LSU dropped a surprise third loss of the season, at unranked Texas A&M. The Tigers had an outside shot at becoming the first two-loss College Football Playoff, but now the best hope they have is to prevent Georgia from going into the semifinal as the No. 1 team, because the Bulldogs are still in the final four even with a loss here.

Group of Five Conference Championships

AAC Championship: Tulane (-3.5, 56.5) vs. UCF. Tulane hasn't won a conference title in this century while UCF has won four, and the winner of this one almost certainly gets the Group of Five's New Year's bowl bid.

MAC Championship: Toledo (-3, 54) vs. Ohio. A surprise title game bid for the Bobcats, who haven't won the MAC since 1968, but has played for it four times since then, while Toledo is looking to win the conference for the first time since 2016.

Mountain West Championship: Boise State (-3, 54.5) vs. Fresno State. A strong second half to the season for Fresno State, which lost four straight early on and won its final seven in a row, while the Broncos are a perfect 8-0 in conference play.

Sun Belt Championship: Troy (-7.5, 47.5) vs. Coastal Carolina. Jon Sumrall inherited a Troy program that went 5-7 a year ago, winning 10 games and taking the West Division, earning the right to play a Chanticleer team that has two league losses, allowing 40-plus points in both, including a 47-7 shocker to James Madison in the finale, but could get Grayson McCall back from injury,
