2015 Teams Set for Huge NCAA Football Turnarounds

If you’re an online betting enthusiast that wants to know which college football teams could be poised for big improvements in 2015, then you’ve come to the right place! Thanks to this collegiate gridiron betting breakdown on the handful of teams that I believe are set for huge turnarounds in 2015, you’re going to get some expert insight that could help go a long way toward helping you have a successful 2015 college football odds campaign. With that said, let’s get started.

Let’s Look at the 2015 Teams Set for Huge NCAA Football Betting Turnarounds

Michigan

The Michigan Wolverines were mostly abysmal in going 5-7 SU and ATS in 2014 under former head coach Brady Hoke as they missed out on a bowl game for just the third time since 1975. Hoke’s dismissal however, opened the door for Michigan State to hire former Stanford and former San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh to lead the program in a new direction and I believe it is going to pay immediate dividends for the Wolverines. Harbaugh was immediately successful at both stops and it stands to reason that he will be at Michigan as well, particularly since the Wolverines managed to finish with a top-10 recruiting class this year.

Penn State

Penn State won seven games (7-6 SU) in the Big Ten in head coach James Franklin’s first season leading them, but I believe the Nittany Lions could be poised for a nine-win season at the very least in 2015, based mostly on the fact that the mostly young Nittany Lions will have a full year of experience in Franklin’s system and the fact that Penn State has an elite quarterback in Christian Hackenberg.

Texas

The Longhorns went 6-7 in Charlie Strong’s tumultuous first season in Austin, but there’s plenty of reason to believe that Strong will get Texas back to being an elite ballclub. First and foremost, the Longhorns should be better if for no other reason than the maturation of athletically-gifted quarterback Tyrone Swoopes. I also like the fact that Strong led Louisville to a 23-3 record in his last two seasons at the school and helped groom Teddy Bridgewater into the future NFL star that he currently looks like he’s going to be for years to come.

USC

I know the Trojans won nine games last season, but they were an inconsistent bunch that never won more than two straight games in the competitive Pac-12. Still, I think USC could be poised for something of a breakout campaign in 2015. The Trojans had the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class this year and I like both, head coach Steve Sarkisian and quarterback Cody Kessler, well enough to believe the Trojans will at least have a shot to reach the four-team BCS playoff in 2015.

Oklahoma State

I really thought Oklahoma State was primed for a solid season in 2014, particularly after seeing them narrowly fall to Florida St 37-31 in their regular season opener – and win each of their next five games. Unfortunately, their humbling 42-9 Week 7 home loss to TCU kicked off a five-game losing streak that effectively ended the Cowboys’ season. Nevertheless, I see a lot of reasons why Oklahoma State could be really solid in 2015. Quarterback is no longer a question mark seeing as how Mason Rudolph showed some serious promise in leading the Cowboys to an upset over Oklahoma and win over Washington in the Cactus Bowl to finish with a winning record (7-6). If Oklahoma State can score the ball better than they did in averaging just 27.6 points per game (77th) and commit fewer turnovers in 2015 than they did a year ago, nine wins certainly isn’t out of the question.

South Carolina

South Carolina (7-6) took a huge step backwards in 2014 following the departures of several key members of their 2013 team, including standout All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Now, after posting their worst record since 2009, the Gamecocks could be poised to get back into legitimate national title contention. Head coach Steve Spurrier is a proven winner at the college level and led South Carolina to 40 victories over the previous four seasons combined. If can find someone to actually throw the ball with some sort of competence, the Gamecocks could approach nine or 10 wins.
