Despite another impressive performance from Florida State QB Jameis Winston this weekend, the news of Winston being named in an ongoing sexual assault case has caused his Heisman odds to take a hit.
Winston is still the fave at -400 to take home the award for college football's most outstanding player, but the margin between him and the rest of the field is much closer.
Last week before the news broke about Winston, he was favored at -800. Winston led FSU to a 59-3 win over Syracuse and now has 2938 passing yards and 31 total touchdowns while completing 70.9 percent of his passes this season. If Winston were to be charged with a felony, he would automatically be suspended by the FSU athletic department.
Defending Heisman winner Johnny Manziel has moved into second place after jumping from +500 to +250 even with Texas A&M not in action this week. The Aggies QB has 3313 yards passing and 31 passing touchdowns to go along with 600 yards rushing and eight rushing touchdowns.
Alabama QB AJ McCarron is close behind at +450. That is a slight increase from last week where he was at +500. Alabama defeated Mississippi State 20-7 on Saturday and McCarron now has 2228 passing yards with 21 touchdowns and is completing 67.8 percent of his passes.
