Bovada (@BovadaLV) released its updated BCS title and Heisman odds Thursday, which reflect the changes following USC's 21-14 loss at Stanford Cardinal in Week 3.

Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers moved to the front of the polls, and also the BCS title odds as USC slipped to 12/1 for the national championship. Florida State (8/1) and Oregon Ducks (9/1) saw their odds improve, while Stanford and Notre Dame Fighting Irish  -- despite big jumps in the polls -- are at 25/1.

"USC even at 3/1 since the beginning of the season were still taking money going into last weekend and are a significant loser for the book if they win the BCS Championship, but with one loss have jumped to 12-1 in turn making Alabama a clear favorite at 19/10 followed by LSU dropping significantly from 13/2 to 7/2," said Kevin Bradley, Bovada.lv Sportsbook Manager.  "USC still has a shot to make the championship game but may be hard-pressed especially the way teams like Florida State Seminoles , Georgia Bulldogs and Oregon have been playing."

Matt Barkley slipped to second in the Heisman odds, with West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith moving into the frontrunner position at 5/2. Barkley is still a close second at 5/1, with a big gap between those two and Oregon's all-everthing De'Anthony Thomas (15/2).

Another interesting updated odd from Bovada was regarding Notre Dame's eventual finish in the AP poll. That over/under is currently set at 15.5.
