A New Favorite In Town
There were plenty of high expectations surrounding Oklahoma Sooners quarterback, Spencer Rattler, as he opened up with the shortest college football odds to win the Heisman Trophy. However, those expectations have changed after Rattler’s 304 passing yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions in his first outing of the season.
Being that he did not have the opening game that many were hoping for, oddsmakers looked in another direction for the favorite and did not have to look any further than Alabama’s quarterback, Bryce Young.
Young certainly lived up to the Alabama standard in his first career start having put up 344 passing yards and 4 touchdowns against Miami.
It is safe to say that if Young continues to play at this level or better, the Heisman Trophy could be making its way back to Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Corral Makes Top-3 Cut
After opening up the season not ranked inside of the Top-25, Ole Miss has now found themselves ranked #20, thanks to their junior quarterback, Matt Corral. Corral was firing on all cylinders in the Rebels season opener, throwing for 381 yards, 1 touchdown, 55 rush yards, and a rushing touchdown. He went 22-32 on the night at a 68.8% completion rate.
In his next two games, he is set to have repeat performances, if not best his first one with greater numbers, against Austin Peay State and Tulane, who are both not members of any Power Five conferences. With that, his odds could get even shorter than they are right now.
Daniels & Uiagalelei Take Harsh Dips
Two notable names that saw their odds shift in the wrong direction are JT Daniels from Georgia and D.J. Uiagalelei from Clemson. These two quarterbacks saw each other in the season opener, where Daniels got the best of the matchup in a 10-3 Georgia win.
Daniels had a quiet but efficient game going for 135 passing yards and 1 interception while throwing at a 73.3% passing rate. Uiagalele, on the other hand, did not have the best of games with 178 passing yards, no touchdowns, and 1 interception at a 51.4% rate.
Both had less than great opening games and until they pick up the speed, their odds could continue to move further in the Heisman Trophy category.
