Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud moved into the role of Heisman Trophy favorite after throwing for six touchdowns and 432 yards in the Buckeyes’ 56-7 thrashing of Michigan State on Saturday.

BetMGM and DraftKings both listed Stroud, a redshirt freshman, at -200 on Sunday. On Oct. 31, after a 305-yard performance against Penn State, Stroud was at +450 at both books.

The six touchdown passes against the Spartans tied Stroud for the most in Buckeyes history.

Alabama sophomore quarterback Bryce Young had quite a day of his own on Saturday, completing 31 of 40 passes for 559 yards and five TDs in a 42-35 defeat of Arkansas. Both BetMGM and DraftKings listed him at +150 in the Heisman odds on Sunday.

The 559 yards passing set a Crimson Tide record.

On Oct. 31, he was offered at +190 by BetMGM and +180 by DraftKings.

Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral, the favorite earlier this year, was listed Sunday at +1600 by BetMGM and +2000 by DraftKings.

The Heisman Trophy will be awarded Dec. 11.
