Electrifying performance against Florida gives boost to Jayden Daniels in the Heisman Trophy race
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Jayden Daniels electrified Tiger Stadium after he racked 606 yards by ground and air against Florida. That performance gave the LSU quarterback a major boost in his shot to win a Heisman Trophy.
But, he’s not the favorite to take home the award according to Caesars Sportsbook. Oregon quarterback Bo Nix is the Heisman favorite (+100), followed by Jayden Daniels (3+50) and Washington quarterback Michael Penix, Jr. (+350).
Daniels is ahead of Nix in some of the major offensive categories: passing yards (3,164-3,135), TD passes (30-29), rushing TD’s (9-5), and rushing yards (918-121).
Daniels has two games left to impressive voters against Georgia State and Texas A&M.
Bo Nix takes on Arizona State and Oregon State. The Ducks could also play in the Pac-12 title game.
