Rivalry week’s opening lines have been released, and this slate of games doesn’t look to disappoint.

Below are the odds of some of the most intriguing matchups, courtesy of the Vegas Insider.

We have some legitimate Friday night battles, including a pivotal Conference USA clash between East Carolina (+2.5) and Marshall. The winner will go on to play for the conference championship against what will likely be Rice.

Also on Friday is Bowling Green (-1.5) as a favorite at Buffalo for the MAC East, Fresno State (-8.5) will be tested on the road at San Jose State, and Iowa (+3) is the underdog at Nebraska.

Moving on to Saturday, we start off with The Game. Ohio State (-14) is expected to put up huge numbers on Michigan—but this is a matchup in which we need to throw the records away. The Wolverines are 5-1 at home and will be looking for revenge from last year’s loss, as well as salvaging their season.

Many expect Auburn (+10.5) to give Alabama all that it can handle in this year’s Iron Bowl, but Las Vegas is taking the Tide by at least two scores. I’m surprised the odds aren’t a little higher.

There are some major stakes on the line for South Carolina (-5) with its rivalry game in Columbia against Clemson. The Gamecocks need a win and a Missouri loss to go on to the SEC Championship Game.

Stanford (-14) looks to dominate Notre Dame at home, Duke (+5.5) could fall to North Carolina in Chapel Hill, Missouri (-4.5) will put its battle cleats on versus Texas A&M, USC (-3.5) is expected to win back LA, and despite destroying Oregon last week, Arizona (+11.5) is a big underdog at Arizona State.
