Week 4 of the college football season is here, and it’s never too early to speculate on who will win the 2022 Heisman Trophy.
Three quarterbacks have become favorites for college football’s most prestigious award: Ohio State’s CJ Stroud, USC’s Caleb Williams and Alabama’s Bryce Young.
After three weeks, Stroud is still the betting favorite, but Williams closed that gap after a win at Fresno State last week where he racked up four total touchdowns. He now has the second-best odds to win this year’s Heisman Trophy according to multiple sources.
Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennet and Oklahoma quarterback Dillon Gabriel complete the top 5.
Here is an overview of the current 2022 Heisman Trophy odds:
Williams will have another chance to improve his chances of winning the Heisman Trophy with a conference road showdown at Oregon State this weekend.

This season, he has 64 of 86 pass attempts with a 74.4 completion percentage (good for 4th-best completion percentage in the nation) and eight touchdowns through the air. He rushed for 75 yards and two more scores.
Stroud and the Buckeyes host conference rival Wisconsin this weekend.
The Ohio State signal caller is 62 of 85 with a 72.9 completion percentage (8th nationally) and 11 passing touchdowns. He’s only rushed for 10 yards this season and is yet to score a rushing touchdown.
If Williams can match or surpass last week’s four touchdown performance, he might be able to close the gap between himself and Stroud.
Be sure to catch Williams and the Trojans in action this weekend.
