Penn State Football: McSorley And Barkley Among Top Heisman Contenders Odds

by on January 23, 2017 4:10 PM

Oh how times have changed.

Penn State's offense, once the most visible byproduct of the NCAA scholarship sanctions will now have two Heisman front runners heading into the 2017 season according to Bovada sports book. The Nittany Lion quarterback and running back combo are both 10/1 to win the game's most prestigious award.

For Barkley it marks the second straight season that his name has been tossed around the headlines with the Heisman award, for Penn State's do-it-all quarterback in Trace McSorley it's his first official tie to the trophy.

Ahead of the two Nittany Lions are the returning Heisman winner in Lamar Jackson as well as USC quarterback Sam Darnold who impressed in Penn State's last second Rose Bowl defeat. 

Whether or not Barkley and McSorley maintain their standing as the season approaches remains to be seen, but it's safe to say if anything is an indication of how far the Nittany Lions have come, this would be it.
