I;m not going to lie, I'm extremely high on Auburns chances of winning the SEC this year, and in the process they could either see Kam Pettway, or Jarrett Stidham winning the Heisman trophy.  Unfortunately for Auburn, the tigers have one of the toughest schedules in the country.  Not only does Auburn have Clemson on the road in week two, but they also have a 3 game road stretch, between LSU, Arkansas, and Texas A&M, before they play Georgia at home.  To finish the regular season, Auburn gets Alabama in Auburn.  Auburn also plays Ole Miss, Miss St, and Mizzou.  I think Auburn is one of the best teams in the country, but their schedule is brutal

The ACC Costal has a very hard schedule.  I think Clemson is a very underrated team, and a lot will depend on their QB play, but Clemson plays Auburn during week 2, before traveling to Louisville to play Louisville at home.  They also go to NCST before finishing the season vs Florida State and at South Carolina.

Florida State opens the season vs Alabama, they also play Miami, Louisville, NCST, and eventually Clemson and then Florida on the road.

Louisville gets to play Clemson at home, while they get Florida State on the Road.

The conference that has a pretty easy schedule, especially when you consider Will Grier might miss the first 8 weeks of the season, and the BIG 12 has an unbelievably bad group of defensive teams... I would either bet that the Heisman winner comes from the PAC 12 or the BIG 12.  

Oklahoma ST has a very easy out of conference schedule, their first six games are Tulsa, at South Alabama, at Pitt, TCU, Texas Tech, and Baylor.  Their toughest game is at Texas, and then they host Oklahoma at home. Not only do they not have to play Ohio State, like Oklahoma, but they also might be playing West Virginia without Will Grier.

USC and Washington both have a easy regular season schedule, because of this I think Darnold has the best chance of winning the Heisman.  Not only has he recieved a ridiculous amount of publicity, but USC doesnt have one great defensive team on their schedule.  Colorado, Washington ST, Notre Dame, Texas and Stanford appear to be the most taleneted teams the Trojans play.  I think the smart money has Darnold winning the heisman, and USC winning the PAC 12.  The odds are only 7/1, but considering how many elite recruits are joining the Trojans offense, it's a pretty safe bet Sam Darnold and his weapons will have no trouble throwing all over teams like UCLA.  Darnold will also be able to showcase his talent in beautiful weather, unlike the QB's in the BIG 10.
