At the midpoint in Ohio State's regular season, the Buckeyes have not one, but two Heisman Trophy candidates.
Both C.J. Stroud and TreVeyon Henderson have top-seven odds to win the 2021 Heisman Trophy after Ohio State's blowout win over Maryland, according to the online sportsbook betonline.ag.
Stroud has the nation's third-best odds at 5/1 (+500) while Henderson has the seventh-best odds at 25/1 (+2500). Alabama quarterback Bryce Young still has the nation's best odds at 7/4, but those odds are down from an even 1/1 last week after the Crimson Tide's loss to Texas A&M on Saturday.
Stroud ranks top-10 nationally in passing touchdowns (5), passing yards (6), yards per completion (4), and passing efficiency (3). Henderson, meanwhile, leads the nation in yards per carry with 8.77 and is tied for fourth in the country with nine rushing touchdowns.
Stroud and Henderson will have to wait another week before another opportunity to improve their Heisman stock as the Buckeyes are off this week and will return to action on the road against Indiana on Oct. 23.
