With only two weeks left in the regular season, there are only a handful of legitimate candidates left in the running for the Heisman Trophy. Since Tua Tagovailoa's year is now over, ESPN has a new player on its ballot.

As of right now, the odds-on favorite to win the Heisman is Joe Burrow. He's been great for LSU this season in large part because of its new-look offense.

Another quarterback that is firmly in the mix to win the Heisman Trophy is Jalen Hurts. However, the Oklahoma signal-caller needs to play well to prevent Justin Fields from leapfrogging him in the rankings.

Out of all the top candidates that ESPN listed, the only non-quarterback is Chuba Hubbard. The Oklahoma State running back already has 1,726 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns this season.

Here are ESPN's top five candidates:

  1. Joe Burrow, LSU QB
  2. Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma QB
  3. Justin Fields, Ohio State QB
  4. Chuba Hubbard, Oklahoma State RB
  5. Chase Young, Ohio State DE

Chase Young's stock fell due to his two-game suspension from the NCAA. He'll have two opportunities to shine on the national stage though, as Ohio State faces Penn State and Michigan in back-to-back games.

Who do you think will win the Heisman Trophy this year?
