The college football season is quickly winding down, but things keep heating up in the Heisman Trophy race. As usual, quarterbacks continue to lead the pack, with Bryce Young not giving up an inch after another tremendous five-touchdown performance against New Mexico State. However, C.J. Stroud threw five TDs of his own, leading the Buckeyes over the Boilermakers. Stroud has now climbed the ladder into second place in the Heisman Trophy odds at +225.

It appears Kenneth Walker III isn’t going anywhere, as he rounds out the top three at +350 after another 143 yards on the ground against Maryland. Finally, another defensive player has entered the mix in Crimson Tide outside linebacker Will Anderson Jr., who’s finally getting some love from the NCAAF odds. He’s now in the top 12 at +8000. As we enter the home stretch, here’s a look at the current Heisman Trophy odds.

Heisman Trophy Top 5 Contenders

C.J. Stroud has shot up to number two in the Heisman odds race after another stellar outing against Purdue. Stroud has the Buckeyes offense looking unstoppable as Ohio State has its hopes on a National Championship.

At this point, it looks like the Heisman Trophy will be a battle between Young and Stroud, but a monster game by Walker III this weekend could change everything. Here are the current stats of the top five candidates.

Heisman Trophy History

With four quarterbacks in the top five Heisman odds standings, it’s looking like the honor might belong to a QB once again after DeVonta Smith bucked the trend and won as a wide receiver last year.

It’s still far from over, as Kenneth Walker III continues to open eyes with his dominating rushing performances week after week. It seems like it could be a photo finish this year with the race going right down to the wire. Here’s a list of the last ten winners.

Who Will Bring Home the Hardware?

After another jaw-dropping performance, C.J. Stroud has finally bumped Matt Corral out of second place and is putting the heat on Alabama QB Bryce Young. Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett is also making sure we remember his name by cracking the top five for the first time this year as he continues to pile up otherworldly numbers. And nobody has forgotten about Kenneth Walker III.
