Bo Nix headlines Heisman Trophy watch heading into Week 11
By Oliver Hodgkinson, Pro Football Network
There is no player more important to their team’s success than Oregon quarterback Bo Nix. There are just three weeks remaining of the college football regular season, and the odds on Nix being named the Heisman Trophy winner have been slashed to +800 by DraftKings Sportsbook following incredible showing after incredible showing after incredible showing.
Nix is in exulted company this season. The Oregon QB is just the fourth Power Five quarterback with 20+ passing touchdowns and 10+ rushing touchdowns through eight games of a season this millennium. That list includes Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts. However, most pertinently, as Nix’s odds continue to fall, it also includes 2016 Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.
