LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Since Brett Hundley has been sacked more than any other FBS quarterback over the last three seasons, it seems logical for opposing defenses to throw wave after wave of blitzes at No. 25 UCLA's signal-caller.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Football - Oregon Ducks News

One sports book thinks the favorite for the Heisman Trophy isn't Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott. Bovada has Oregon QB Marcus Mariota listed this week as the favorite for the trophy at 3/2. Mariota's Ducks are No. 6 in the country. Prescott isn't too far behind. As his team is undefeated and No. 1, his odds are at 9/4. Last week, Mariota was listed as 3/1. Prescott's odds are unchanged. Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon is listed as the third-favorite at 6/1. Alabama WR Amari Cooper and Notre Dame QB Everett Golson are tied for fourth at 18/1 with last year's winner, Florida State QB Jameis Winston. Alabama has also moved to the favorite to win the College Football Playoff after its 59-0 drubbing of Texas A&M. The Crimson Tide are now 6/1 favorites for the title, ahead of Mississippi State at 13/2, Florida State at 7/1 and Ole Miss at 15/2. Last week, Alabama was the fourth-favorite behind those three teams. The player who took the biggest hit to his Heisman standing in Week 8 was Baylor QB Bryce Petty. After Baylor lost to West Virginia, Petty's odds for the Heisman went from 11/2 to 33/1. Petty fell from tied for third-favorite to the No. 12 player on the board. He was leapfrogged by West Virginia WR Kevin White, the leading receiver in the country, who had 132 receiving yards and two touchdowns against Baylor. White is now listed at 25/1. The Bears also fell from 14/1 odds to win the College Football Playoff to 33/1. Baylor was jumped by TCU, who went from 50/1 to 20/1 after drubbing Oklahoma State on Saturday. - - - - - - - Nick Bromberg is the assistant editor of Dr. Saturday on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Our 2014-15 season preview continues with the Dagger's look at 10 coaches under the most pressure to win. Check back every day for more college hoops preview content. Dana Altman, Oregon Why the pressure is on: Unlike the other coaches on this list, Altman is not under pressure for his win-loss record. The Oregon coach has taken the Ducks to the NCAA tournament both of the past two seasons and to the Sweet 16 in 2013, but he has come under fire this offseason as a result of a slew of off-the-court issues. Of course, the most egregious was the rape accusations against former Ducks Dominic Artis, Damyean Dotson and Brandon Austin. Altman drew intense criticism for signing Austin despite previous allegations of sexual assault while he was at Providence and for playing Artis and Dotson in the NCAA tournament even while they were under investigation by the police. No charges were filed in the case, but all three were dismissed from school in June. Between that, several other Oregon players transferring and two top recruits not being admitted to school, Oregon has a paper-thin roster this season and little proven returning talent besides Pac-12 player of the year candidate Joseph Young. Nonetheless, a losing season isn't what could jeopardize Altman's job. More off-the-court issues, however, certainly could.

Asked about the 10-year contract extension Ford signed in Sept. 2009, Holder acknowledged, “In retrospect, it wasn’t good for him or us." Holder wouldn't say that what saved Ford's job was the $11.85 million in buyout money Oklahoma State would owe him if it fired him, but the athletic director didn't deny it either. “Who knows? You can hypothetical yourself to death,” Holder said. It's easy to understand Holder's frustration given Ford's underachieving track record. In six seasons at Oklahoma State — the last two with lottery pick Marcus Smart and a talented supporting cast — Ford has produced a 52-50 Big 12 record and just one NCAA tournament victory. Now Smart is a Boston Celtic, Markel Brown, Brian Williams and Kamari Murphy have also departed and the Cowboys no longer appear talented enough to finish in the upper half of the Big 12. Ford's hefty buyout may save his job another year regardless, but a surprise NCAA tournament bid this season would go a long way toward winning back Cowboys fans and his athletic director.
