New Heisman Odds Narrow Field Down to Five Players


Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts entered last weekend as the heavy favorite to win the award and give the Sooners back-to-back-to-back Heisman winners.

Tua Tagovailoa, who finished second to OU’s Kyler Murray last year, has been fantastic and on Saturday, he threw for four touchdowns in a 47-28 win over Texas A&M. And with that effort he once again is the Heisman front runner.

Here’s how their numbers shake out so far:

Tua Tagovailoa – QB, Alabama (6-0) – 134-for-182, 2,011 yards (11 YPA), 27 TD, 1 INT, 35 rush yards, 2 TD

Joe Burrow– QB LSU (6-0) – 148-for-186, 2,157 yards (11.6 YPA), 25 TD, 3 INT, 105 rush yards, 2 TD

Jalen Hurts – QB Oklahoma (6-0) – 98-for-137, 1,758 yards (12.8 YPA), 17 TD, 3 INT, 630 rush yards, 8 TD

Justin Fields– QB Ohio State (6-0) – 98-for-141, 1,298 yards (9.2 YPA), 18 TD, 1 INT, 283 rush yards, 8 TD

Jonathan Taylor – RB Wisconsin (6-0) – 129 attempts, 825 yards, 14 TD, 15 REC, 136 yards, 4 TD
