Florida State



Michael Penix Jr

Washington Huskies quarterback Michael Penix Jr. solidified his role as the favorite to win the Heiman Trophy after throwing for 256 yards with a pair of scoring strikes in the Washington Huskies 52-42 away victory over the USC Trojans. Penix leads the nation in passing yards with the second-most passing TDs for the No. 5 Huskies.

Up Next: The Huskies play host to No. 18 Utah in an important Pac-12 matchup.

Bo Nix

Oregon Ducks quarterback Bo Nix is the publics second choice to be named to college footballs most prestigious individual award after accounting for six TDs in Saturday’s 63-19 home victory over California. Nix three four scoring strikes, and scampered in for two more. The Oregon signal-caller has thrown only one interception over 263 attempts this season.

Up Next: The No. 6 Oregon Ducks host No. 20 USC in what could be the game that allows Nix to overtake Penix or fall completely off of the board.

Jayden Daniels

LSU Tigers quarterback Jayden Daniels remained in the third spot on the board but saw his odds increase. Daniels threw for a pair of TDs and rushed for another before leaving the game against Alabama in the fourth-quarter and was joined by his mother in the medical tent. Daniels is fifth nationally in passing yards with the second most TD passes behind 2022 Heisman winner Caleb Williams.

Next Up: If Daniels is able to suit up he and the No. 14 Tigers have a tough home matchup with Florida.

J.J. McCarthy

Michigan Wolverines quarterback J.J. McCarthy took a tumble from the second spot and saw his odds decrease as a result of a NCAA probe into allegations of sign stealing. Still, McCarthy threw for 335 yards without an interception in the Wolverines 41-13 home thrashing of Purdue. The Michigan signal caller is third nationally in completion percentage for the undefeated Wolverines.

Up Next: The No. 2 Wolverines head to Happy Valley and a matchup with No. 14 Penn State that will surely decide McCarthy’s Heisman hopes.

Jordan Travis

Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jordan Travis continues to hang around the fifth spot after throwing for 360 yards with a TD and rushed for another in the Seminoles 24-7 away victory over Pittsburgh. Travis has thrown only two interceptions over 289 passing attempts for the undefeated Seminoles and while his numbers are considerably lower than some others, his Seminoles are undefeated because of Travis.

Up Next: No. 4 Florida State plays host to formerly nationally ranked Miami in a tough ACC instate matchup.
