Week 5 of the college football season is in the books, and the Heisman Trophy odds look a lot different than they did before the start of the season with a handful of shakeups.
A few of the preseason favorites remain in the mix, while some longshots are also starting to find their way into the mix.
Who do the oddsmakers see bringing home college football’s most prestigious award?
A look at the latest Heisman odds can be seen below, via Caesar’s Sportsbook.
- Bryce Young, Alabama +125
- Matt Corral, Ole Miss +230
- Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati +1400
- CJ Stroud, Ohio State +2000
- Spencer Rattler, Oklahoma +2500
- Bijan Robinson, Texas +3000
- JT Daniels, Georgia +4000
- Kenneth Walker III, Michigan State +4000
- Brian Robinson Jr., Alabama +4000
- Treveyon Henderson, Ohio State +4000
It is no surprise that Alabama quarterback Bryce Young sits atop the list. Alabama continues to be a dominant force that plugs in another outstanding player when the previous guy inevitably heads to the NFL.

A few surprises are the falls of Spencer Rattler and Sam Howell. Both were seen as huge favorites for the Heisman award heading into the season. However, both signal-callers have had a bad performance that has made them an afterthought to a few SEC quarterbacks who now sit on the list.
