Updated Heisman Trophy race odds, performances after Week 7 – Buckeyes Wire

  • October 22, 2022

Winning a Heisman Trophy puts an athlete in a very, very exclusive club. It also punches your ticket to the “Heisman House” commercials, so there’s that too.
Ohio State has a long history of Heisman trophies, tied for the most of any program with Notre Dame and Oklahoma (seven). Sorry USC, Reggie Bush took the Trojans’ total down to six after he was stripped of his.
This year the Buckeyes have another Heisman hopeful, quarterback C.J. Stroud. He was one of the front-runners for the bronze statue in the preseason and nothing has happened to change that aside from Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker coming on. In fact, Stroud is still thought of as the favorite, but there’s still half of a season left.
Each week, we like to check in on the updated odds and performances of the players that are on the shortlist to stiff-arm the competition and take arguably the most coveted individual award in all of American sports home.
Stroud has been at or near the top so far this season, but after a week in which he wasn’t really asked to do much, where is Stroud now? Here are the updated odds according to Tipico, and last week’s performances of the top guys to compare it all.
Can Stroud hold off the competition?
