What to make of Penn State’s national title odds for next season?

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Surprise, surprise the Alabama football dynasty added more hardware to their trophy case Monday night, claiming college football's top prize in dramatic fashion and did so behind a true freshman quarterback.

As it's seemingly always been for much of the past decade, Alabama -- the fourth and final team into the College Football Playoff -- naturally finished the season ranked atop the AP Poll while Georgia, Oklahoma, Clemson and Ohio State rounded out the top 5. Penn State's Fiesta Bowl victory had the Nittany Lions ranked No. 8 in the final AP Poll of the season, checking in behind undefeated UCF and 13-1 Wisconsin.

So what does this mean for next season? That's right while meaningful college football games won't be played for the next 233 days -- but who is counting -- several oddsmakers barely waited until the confetti was cleaned up to release next year's national title odds.
