The phrase "Games of the Year" screams, "I'm special." You know you're in for a treat, such as when Julia Dale sings the national anthem before a Miami Heat game. (By the way, she can make a note last. The total on her time to sing can't be high enough).
In Vegas, Games of the Year means a bookmaker is showing some stones. It means that, in June, someone is posting numbers on games, in this case college football, that he/she feels so good about that it doesn't matter there are three months before the season starts. Freshmen haven't been graded and inevitable injuries haven't taken place, but you can get a line on Michigan-Ohio State on Nov. 24 and Army-Navy on Dec. 3.
