While the conversation in college football generally centers around the playoff - who's rising, who's falling, who's in and who's out - there's another conversation that usually picks up steam at this time of year: The Heisman.
Yet with no candidate separating himself this season, the Heisman race still seems to be largely up for grabs.
However, after another Saturday in the books in college football, there has been a major shift at the top, with two names emerging. Here are the updated odds, via DraftKings Sportsbook:
Bryce Young (+150)
Matt Corral (+260)
CJ Stroud (+550)
Kenny Pickett (+1000)
Caleb Williams (+1200)
Kenneth Walker (+2000)
TreyVeon Henderson (+2500)
Desmond Ridder (+2800)
Brian Robinson (+3500)
Bijan Robinson (+4500)
Again, you can see the full odds here, but a few things stand out.
First off, if you listen to "College Football Betting with Aaron Torres" - Aaron told you last week that if Pitt won, Pickett's name would start to emerge in the Heisman conversation - and that's exactly what happened here. He is now 10-1, and with a very manageable schedule down the stretch (they only have two teams left with a winning record, Virginia and North Carolina) Pickett should continue to pile up stats.
Also, an argument could be made that Ohio State has emerged as the second best team in college football right after Georgia, and it shows in the Heisman odds. CJ Stroud has been incredible, throwing 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions in his last three games, to move up the boards. TreyVeon Henderson is slowing emerging as well.
Finally, there's one name that is interesting towards the top: That of Caleb Williams. While it seems absurd that a guy who didn't play the first third of the season could make this list, think about it in a different way: If it really is about *value* to the team, who has been more valuable than Williams?
By the way, if you're looking for a real long-shot, there has been some buzz that massive Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis should get some Heisman love. He still sits at +10000 if you're looking to throw down some coin.
