Heisman hopeful? DJ Uiagalelei's Heisman Trophy odds continue to rise
Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei is amongst the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy entering Week 6.
According to live odds aggregated from a number of sports books, Uiagalelei is +2527 to win the award. He ranks 9th entering Week 6 of the college football season.
Before the year started, Uiagalelei was closer to +3000 at most books to win the Heisman. Since then, Uiagalelei has played a few of the best games of his career.
So far this season Uiagalelei is completing 65.4% of his passes and has 11 touchdowns compared to just 1 interception. He’s also a major threat with his legs and has rushed for 242 yards and 3 scores in 5 games.
Uiagalelei leads all ACC players in Heisman odds. North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye is second at +3560.
Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud is the heavy favorite entering Week 6. He’s listed at +140 while no other player is better than +500.
Still, Clemson’s success as a team and Uiagalelei’s improvement will give him a chance to take home college football’s top individual prize. No Clemson player has ever won the Heisman Trophy.
