On the Heisman front, Saquon Barkley’s performance against Michigan State was enough to bump him off the top spot, as Baker Mayfield has now jumped back into the driver’s seat of the Heisman debate.

The Oklahoma quarterback enters Friday morning with 1-to-2 odds of taking home the prestigious trophy, while Penn State’s Barkley now has 7-to-4 odds.

After climbing up the ranks following the comeback against the Nittany Lions, J.T. Barrett’s performance against the Hawkeyes dropped him back to 33-to-1 odds of walking away with the Heisman.

Ohio State basketball odds

While March is a long way off, the odds that Ohio State’s season will end with a basketball championship are deep into longshot territory.

With their season opener tonight against Robert Morris, Chris Holtmann’s program has a 300-to-1 shot at cutting down the nets in San Antonio, according to Bovada’s listing early Friday morning.

On that same listing, the four teams with the best odds to win it all come tournament time are Duke, Michigan State, Kentucky and Arizona.
