Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud moved into the role of Heisman Trophy favorite after throwing for six touchdowns and 432 yards in the Buckeyes' 56-7 thrashing of Michigan State on Saturday.

BetMGM and DraftKings both listed Stroud, a redshirt freshman, at -200 on Sunday. On Oct. 31, after a 305-yard performance against Penn State, Stroud was at 450 at both books.

The six touchdown passes against the Spartans tied Stroud for the most in Buckeyes history.

Alabama sophomore quarterback Bryce Young had quite a day of his own on Saturday, completing 31 of 40 passes for 559 yards and five TDs in a 42-35 defeat of Arkansas. Both BetMGM and DraftKings listed him at 150 in the Heisman odds on Sunday.

The 559 yards passing set a Crimson Tide record.

On Oct. 31, he was offered at 190 by BetMGM and 180 by DraftKings.

Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral, the favorite earlier this year, was listed Sunday at 1600 by BetMGM and 2000 by DraftKings.

The Heisman Trophy will be awarded Dec. 11.
