Week 3 of the college football season was pretty tame compared to the week prior. Still, we got Penn State burying Auburn on the road, an amazing last second Hail Mary at Appalachian State, and the Herm Edwards era at Arizona State coming to an embarrassing end. On the Heisman Trophy front, things remained static at the top with Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud still on the top of the leaderboard.

We’ll take a look at who rose and fell coming out of last weekend and analyze where the Heisman race stands heading into Week 4. Odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Stock Up

Dillon Gabriel, QB, Oklahoma

Gabriel is steadily climbing the Heisman odds board, entering Week 4 with the fifth-highest odds at +2000. Oklahoma ripped apart Nebraska 49-14 last Saturday in a game where the UCF transfer went 16-27 for 230 yards and two touchdowns through the air and also added 55 yards and a score on the ground.

Gabriel and the Sooners will once again be on national tv this Saturday when hosting Kansas State at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

Penix and the Huskies notched a statement upset victory at home last Saturday night, knocking off Michigan State 39-28. Penix was excellent through the air, going 24-40 for 397 yards and four touchdowns. As a result, his Heisman Trophy odds skyrocketed from +15000 the week prior to +4500 this week.

Penix will get to show out late Saturday night when Washington hosts Stanford at 10:30 p.m. ET on FS1.

Stock Down

Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

Remember the post Week 1 hype surrounding Anthony Richardson? Yeah, that’s over. Richardson has looked pedestrian two weeks in a row and had a bad outing in Florida’s narrow 31-28 victory last Saturday. The Gainesville, FL, native completed just 10 of 18 pass attempts for 112 yards with two interceptions in the victory. His odds have plummeted from +2200 two weeks ago to +8000 heading into this weekend.

Richardson and the Gators will head up to Knoxville on Saturday to face Tennessee at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

Tyler Van Dyke, QB, Miami

We can also pump the breaks on the Heisman talk surrounding Miami quarterback Tyler Van Dyke for now. The Hurricanes’ offense fell flat in a 17-9 rock fight against Texas A&M last Saturday, a game where Van Dyke completed 21 of 41 passes for 217 yards. His odds took a dip from +4000 to +6000.

The Miami QB will get a chance to pad his stats on Saturday when the Hurricanes host Middle Tennessee State at 3:30 p.m. ET on the ACC Network.
