Heisman Watch – Mac Jones, Kyle Trask battle for No. 1, and DeVonta Smith moves up

Total points: 53 (first place: 6/12)

It’s remarkable: Jones lost 385 yards and four touchdowns to win LSU on Saturday. It was a charming but typical Bum-QB show. His QBR 96.3 remains the best in the FBS this season.

I’m quoting: It’s hard to say how well Steve Sarkisian is handling this crime now. Mac Jones is a favorite for the Heisman Trophy, and now DeVonte Smith is for the votes. — Alex Scarborough

Heisman’s chances: -110

Thank you, Caesar William Hill Sportsbook.

It’s remarkable: Trask followed Jones’ pace in the Battle of Heisman and threw 433 yards and four TDs for the victory over Tennessee. Another regular season game has yet to come before Trask and Jones play their first game of the season on the 19th. December against each other in the SEC championship.

I’m quoting: It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Kyle Trask helped rejuvenate the alligator program by putting a star in the spotlight to bring Florida back into the SEC championship game. — Chris Lowe

It’s remarkable: Lawrence played a convincing game in a major Tiger victory over Virginia Tech – he threw for TD and ran for two more, but he still has a hill to climb to break Jones and Trask.

I’m quoting: With the big games ahead of the boys, his chances of getting Heisman seem to be getting smaller. On the other hand, Dashon Watson was one of the top three in two votes. He didn’t win, but in the end he got better equipment. — David Hale

Heisman’s chances: +1400

It’s remarkable: Since the Crimson Tide has many ways to attack, it’s easy to overlook Smith. But after the LSU show on Saturday it would have been difficult – Smith made eight shots of 231 meters and three touchdowns.

I’m quoting: It was clearly a shame to see the man go 200 yards in one half, USL coach Ed Orgeron said of the game.

Heisman’s chances: +3000
