On Tuesday night, college football fans finally found out who would be taking home the 2020 Heisman Trophy. As was expected by many, Alabama star wide receiver DeVonta Smith earned the honor after catching 105 balls for 1,641 yards and 20 touchdowns through 12 games. Not to mention, he still has one game remaining — Alabama takes on Ohio State in the College Football Playoff National Championship next Monday night.

Now that the winner has been announced, the opening odds for next year’s Heisman winner are live, with Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler currently leading the charge.

Spencer Rattler recently led the Sooners to a blowout win over Florida in the Cotton Bowl Classic. He completed 14 of 23 passes for 247 yards and three scores and concluded his redshirt freshman season having thrown 28 touchdowns to just seven picks in 11 games. Rattler, former star of Netflix’s “QB1,” portrayed significant potential and should be one of the top quarterbacks (and players) in the country next year.

 

 

Bryce Young & Bo Nix Heisman Odds

Coming in second is Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, who threw just 22 passes this past season while backing up Heisman runner-up Mac Jones. The belief is that given his skill and Nick Saban’s system, he’ll be able to thrive during the 2021 campaign. It’s not an unheard-of scenario — just look at some of Bama’s recent quarterbacks: Jones, Tua Tagovailoa, and Jalen Hurts, for example.

Down the line, we have Auburn quarterback Bo Nix, who’ll be entering his third season as the Tigers’ starting quarterback. He’s tied for the lowest odds on the list, and reasonably so. Nix threw just 12 touchdowns and seven picks with a 59.9% completion rate in 11 games this past season and led Auburn to just a 6-5 record.
