Cal opens as -1.5 favorites @ Texas, immediately jumps to as high as -7.5

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Pretty amazing chart.

Cal opened as a 1.5 point favorite in Austin, but that line immediately surged to as high as -7.5 before settling down to -7 and -6.5.  Usually you see these sorts of swings on a major injury announcement, but this seems like a sudden organic realization that Texas isn't quite Texas anymore, is starting over on offense, shaky on defense, got out-gained by Rice (albeit on a snap differential) and that Cal beat its first two opponents 108-21.

This is a big week for Charlie Strong.
