The biggest game on the college football Week 15 slate had been the classic Michigan vs. Ohio State clash, but The Game was unfortunately canceled on Tuesday due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases with the Wolverines. For now, though, there are still over 40 college games to be played this week, including another all-time rivalry in Army vs. Navy. Here is a look at the college football Week 15 odds as we inch closer to crowning a national champion.
College football Week 15 odds
Saturday, Dec. 12: Top games to watch and wager on
Navy vs. Army – 3 p.m. ET
As we all know, this one is more than a game. Army vs. Navy is an annual spectacle, though it sadly won’t be able to replicate the pageantry of past years. The triple option, run-heavy offenses of both teams colors the game with rich history that isn’t found in any other matchup annually. This season, Navy (3-6) hasn’t played its best football with Malcolm Perry now in the NFL. Army, on the other hand, sits at 7-2 and has handled its business against a weaker schedule that was haphazardly thrown together during the pandemic. It might not be the prettiest outcome football-wise, but it’s annually one of the best games and productions to watch.
No. 17 North Carolina at No. 10 Miami – 3:30 p.m. ET
This is a prove-it game for two teams that desperately need a statement win. For UNC, they are coming off a stretch of games in which they lost to Virginia and Notre Dame, and squeaked out a win over Wake Forest. Miami beat Virginia, NC State, and Virginia Tech by an average of three points over a three game stretch before beating Duke 48-0. In their only ranked game this season, the Hurricanes were decimated by Clemson. Both teams are clamoring to prove they belong in the Top 10 despite some question marks on their resume. UNC will face stiff resistance against Miami’s defense that ranks 31st in scoring defense (22 points allowed per game).
No. 22 Washington at No. 23 Oregon – 4 p.m. ET
Both teams are coming off disappointing losses to unranked opponents. For Oregon, it’s a two-game slide to unranked opponents (Oregon State, Cal). In a matchup of preseason Pac-12 favorites, the two are battling for first place in the Pac-12 North and a chance at the title game. The Ducks have just a -1.3 point margin over their last three (1-2, included a win over UCLA) after starting off with a +17.5 point margin in their first two wins. Washington was tripped up by Stanford and has played in just one game this year that was decided by more than a score (Week 2 vs Arizona). Their success has been on the back of their defense, that’s allowing 25 points per game (44th).
