LSU quarterback Joe Burrow has moved to the top of ESPN's Heisman Watch after the Tigers 42-28 win over Florida last weekend, jumping Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts.
1. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
Total points: 44 (first-place votes: 5)
Notable: In perhaps his toughest test of the season against Florida's defense, Burrow more than passed. LSU's star QB threw for three TDs and went 21-of-24 for 293 yards -- including 21 unanswered points in the second half -- as the Tigers beat the Gators, 42-28.
Quotable: "Burrow is the surprise superstar leading the most surprising offense in college football. As good as Tagovailoa has been for Alabama, Burrow's big-play brilliance makes it hard to put anyone else atop the Heisman candidate list." -- ESPN's Adam Rittenberg
Heisman odds (Caesars Sportsbook): 11-4
2. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Total points: 43 (first-place votes: 4)
Notable: On Saturday, Tagovailoa threw four TDs and became Alabama's career passing touchdowns leader with 81. His 27 TDs on the season also lead the nation. He completed 21-of-34 passes for 293 yards as the top-ranked Tide beat Texas A&M, 47-28.
Quotable: "You just revert back to your training. I've experienced playing at a place like Tennessee, then going to LSU, Ole Miss ... Everyone wants to beat Alabama," Tagovailoa said. "We're not done yet. As a team we have to continue to grow."
Heisman odds: -120
