Through the first two weeks of the college football season, it’s pretty evident which players will have impactful years. It may seem premature, but there are also already a few Heisman Trophy favorites.
Coming into the season, Trevor Lawrence was thought of as the front-runner to win the Heisman Trophy. Although Clemson has looked dominant through two games, the sophomore quarterback hasn’t put up incredible numbers.
Another preseason candidate to win the Heisman was Tua Tagovailoa. The southpaw signal-caller nearly won the award last season.
Tagovailoa is having a tremendous start to his junior year for Alabama, and yet, it’s not enough to make him the clear favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.
According to Caesars Sportsbook, Tagovailoa shares the best odds with former teammate Jalen Hurts.
Transferring over to Oklahoma has worked out quite well for Hurts, who has 591 passing yards and nine total touchdowns in his first two games.
Other Heisman favorites include Joe Burrow, Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Sam Ehlinger and Jonathan Taylor.

Burrow is an interesting candidate to win the Heisman. He wasn’t even mentioned as a potential threat before the start of the season, but the new-look offense for LSU has showcased his arm talent.
The only Heisman favorite that isn’t a quarterback is Taylor. Unless he shatters multiple NCAA records this season, it’s hard to envision him winning the award.
Who do you think is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy?
