For the first time in 60 years, LSU has a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate. Regardless of how the rest of the season plays out, congratulations are owed to quarterback Joe Burrow for ascending to the top of the odds board for college football's premier individual award.
Quarterback Joe Burrow already had perhaps the game of the year, when he led LSU to victory on the road against Texas in Week 2, but Saturday’s matchup against Florida further cemented the incredible season he is having.
Another week into the college football season and we have another quarterback ready to throw his name in the ring for the Heisman Trophy chase. After a monster primetime performance on the road at Texas, LSU quarterback and Ohio State transfer Joe Burrow has truly entered the race and comes into the week with odds of +400 to win the award.
Just a week ago the Heisman race looked like a two-horse contest between Tua Tagovailoa and Trevor Lawrence. After a week of the craziness, it appears a third horse has entered the race, and most of us are wondering how we never saw it coming.
The Heisman is a volatile award, and both Trevor Lawrence and Tua Tagovailoa were dominant in 2018 but didn’t take home the trophy. With that in mind, who are some longer shots offering value?
