Where is Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud in the Heisman race after Week 5?

Winning a Heisman Trophy puts an athlete in a very, very exclusive club. Not only that, but it punches your ticket to the “Heisman House” commercials, so there’s that too.

Ohio State has a long history of Heisman Trophies won, tied for the most of any program with Notre Dame and Oklahoma in fact with seven each.

Sorry USC, Reggie Bush took the Trojans’ total down to six after he was stripped of his.

This year the Buckeyes have another Heisman hopeful in quarterback C.J. Stroud.

He was one of the frontrunners for the bronze statue in the preseason and nothing has happened to change that really.

In fact, Stroud is thought to be the favorite as it stands right now, but there’s still a lot of season left.

Each week, we like to check in on the updated odds and performances of the players that are on the shortlist to stiff-arm the competition and take arguably the most coveted individual award in all of American sports home.

Stroud has been at or near the top so far this season, but after a week in which he wasn’t really asked to do much, where is Stroud now after Week 5?

Here are the updated odds according to BetMGM, and last week’s performances of the top guys to compare it all.

Where do you think Stroud should fall at this point in the season?
