Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and LSU quarterback Joe Burrow were included in ESPN's latest Heisman Watch, just behind Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts:

2. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

Total points: 37 (first-place votes: 3)

Notable: Alabama was on a bye, but don't expect a week off to drop Tagovailoa in our rankings. The Tide's star QB has put on a show all season long -- he's fourth in FBS in passing yards and his TD-INT ratio is a sparkling 23-0. Can he throw five TD passes for a third straight game when Bama faces Texas A&M on Saturday?

Quotable: "Tagovailoa has elite accuracy and great footwork, and his arm strength looks improved in his second season as the full-time starter." -- ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.

Heisman odds: -150

3. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

Total points: 28 (first-place votes: 2)

Notable: Normally six TDs would seem astronomical, but this season it appears to be just another day at the office for Burrow. The Tigers' QB had another huge game, this time against Utah State, and tossed for 300 yards for the fourth straight game -- the first LSU QB to accomplish the feat.

Quotable: "Our goal is simple when we have the ball," said receiver Ja'Marr Chase, who has six touchdown catches this season. "Go out there and put on a display. It's fun out there."

Heisman odds: 7-2
Tagovailoa has 1,718 passing yards with 23 touchdowns and zero interceptions on the season. He also has two rushing touchdowns.

Burrow has 1,864 passing yards with 22 touchdowns and three interceptions on the season. He also has two rushing touchdowns.
