Saquon Barkley shoots up to the top of the latest Heisman odds
The Penn State running back was unstoppable in a win over Iowa
Penn State running back Saquon Barkley could not be stopped during the Nittany Lions' Week 4 win at Iowa. And while it was quarterback Trace McSorley who threw the impressive walk-off touchdown, it was Barkley who dazzled with 358 all-purpose yards and a touchdown (not to mention a highlight reel for days).
As a result of the 21-19 win, Barkley, who leads the Big Ten in receiving yards and is two yards off the lead in rushing, has shot up the latest Heisman odds. As of Sept. 18, he was +800. Here's the latest top 10 via Sports Insights ...
Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State
JT Barrett, QB, Ohio State
Josh Rose, QB, UCLA
Trace McSorley, QB, Penn State
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield rounds out what is currently a two-player race at +275 odds. Then there's a significant drop to No. 3 Mason Rudolph, whose odds have actually remained steady despite a Week 4 loss to TCU. Reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson has the fourth-best odds and USC quarterback Sam Darnold rounds out the top five, but his odds have gone down tremendously over the past week (he was +500 as of Sept. 18).
