According to the latest Heisman odds released by FOXBet, Ohio State junior quarterback Justin Fields is now the betting favorite to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy. After finishing third in last year’s balloting following a season where he threw for 3,273 yards with 41 touchdowns and just three interceptions, Fields is now +350 to win the award in 2020.
Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is one of the semifinalists for the most prestigious award in amateur sports. Older than the Heisman Trophy, the AAU Sullivan Award is given to the best amateur athlete in the nation, regardless of sport.
Following a season where Justin Fields threw for 41 touchdowns and just three interceptions while completing 67% of his passes, it might be a bit daunting for a first-year quarterback coach to now be tasked with improving on those numbers. That is Corey Dennis’ job, however, as he steps in for the departed Mike Yurcich. This isn’t his first year with the quarterbacks…
The knee injury suffered by Justin Fields in the closing moments against Penn State was one of the biggest turning points in the Buckeyes’ 2019 season.
Kerry Coombs was named new Ohio State defensive coordinator on Monday. It was not a surprise to anybody who pays attention to such things, but what may be a surprise to Coombs is what is awaiting him in the Buckeye secondary. Ohio State must replace starting cornerbacks Damon Arnette and Jeff Okudah, as well as starting safety Jordan Fuller.
BetOnline has released their 2020 national championship and Heisman odds and the Ohio State Buckeyes are represented well in both. Ohio State has opened with 9/2 odds to win it all next season, behind Clemson at 9/4 and Alabama at 7/2. Clemson fell in last night’s title game 42-25 to LSU, who is fourth on next year’s list at 6/1.
You know him as one of the best quarterbacks in college football, but Justin Fields’ baseball career was promising as well.
