Behind three elite statistical performances for the Ole Miss Rebels, Matt Corral has surged to the lead in the 2021 Heisman Trophy race according to the wagering community.
Corral was 23-31 for 335 yards and three touchdowns without an interception against Tulane on Saturday. He also added four rushing touchdowns on 13 carries for 68 yards. For the season the junior has thrown for 997 yards and nine touchdowns without a pick, and rushed for five more scores and 158 additional yards.
His only competition at this point appears to also be in the SEC West, as Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young has thrown for 804 yards and 10 touchdowns, but actually has -4 yards rushing due to how college football calculates sack yardage. Young did enough for the Tide to roll out of Gainesville with a 31-29 win over Florida on Saturday.
Many of the early preseason favorites such as Spencer Rattler (+600), DJ Uiagalelei (+750), JT Daniels (+1200), and Sam Howell (+1400) have fallen by the wayside after unimpressive performances so far.
