Heisman Trophy odds during Week 13 of college football season

Here’s how the race for the Heisman sits as of Saturday evening.

NCAA Football: Michigan at Ohio State Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The final Saturday of the 2022 college football season is moving right along and the Heisman Trophy race is becoming even more clear.

The biggest result of consequence is Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud and his Buckeyes getting smacked by hated rival Michigan in a 45-23 loss in Columbus. OSU was held to just three points in the second half as the Wolverines made big play after big play and quickly pulled away from their nemesis. Stroud went 31-48 through the air for 348 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. While it wasn’t a horrendous day on the stat sheet, the preseason Heisman frontrunner failed to make the plays to keep the Bucks in the game. He is currently listed with +2500 odds to win on DraftKings Sportsbook and with OSU failing to reach next Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game, that will most likely end Stroud’s Heisman Trophy hopes.

With Stroud falling, USC quarterback Caleb Williams is in the driver’s seat. Williams entered Saturday on top of the leaderboard at -110, and is currently installed at -1600 at 1600. He has a marquee showdown with Notre Dame this evening, and the Heisman Trophy is his to lose and if he delivers the goods tonight and in next week’s Pac-12 Championship Game.

Behind Stroud now is TCU quarterback Max Duggan, who is currently listed with +1600 odds. The Horned Frogs buried Iowa State with a 62-14 victory, a game where he threw for 212 yards and three touchdowns.

The only other top contender who has completed action for the day is Michigan running back Blake Corum, who registered just two carries for six yards in the team’s thumping of Ohio State. Corum suffered a knee injury against Illinois last Saturday and his status was a huge question mark for the entire week. The UM staff ultimately decided to give him a few touches, but his services weren’t needed as the Wolverines dominated down the stretch. As a result, he has been taken off the board entirely.
