Chick-Fil-A Bowl 2011 Odds: Auburn Posted As -1.5 Favorites Over Virginia

The SEC still seems to reign supreme by the odds makers, as the latest college football odds (courtesy of Bovada) list the Auburn Tigers as favorites (-1.5) over the Virginia Cavaliers in the 2011 Chick-fil-a Bowl in Atlanta on December 31st. 

Reports have surfaced late Tuesday night that Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn had accepted an offer to become the next head coach of Arkansas State University, taking over the reigns of Hugh Freeze. Those reports were confirmed, and it looks like Malzahn will stay on with the Tigers staff to get one final victory for War Eagle in their upcoming bowl game on New Years Eve.

Usually, when coaches begin to bolt for other positions with new teams it can leave a team in disarray for their postseason showdown. It remains to see if Gene Chizik can keep his offensive unit on task versus an emerging defensive unit in Virginia.
