Despite a surprisingly high number of upsets in Week 6 of the college football season, No. 1 Alabama and their Heisman-favorite quarterback Tua Tagovailoa continued to roll.


Tagovailoa took yet another step forward in leading the odds for the Heisman race, improving from -115 a week ago to -155 heading into Week 7. Unfortunately for the Week 6 runners-up in Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins and West Virginia's Will Grier, both quarterbacks regressed to the No. 2 and No. 3 spots in the odds for the nation's most prestigious and exclusive college football achievement. 

There's some considerable distance between No. 2 Haskins and Tagovailoa now, which already begs the question: will anyone be able to catch the Crimson Tide's explosive quarterback?


Even though Oklahoma was upset by Texas in the Red River Showdown on Saturday afternoon, their star quarterback Kyler Murray actually climbed the ladder from +1400 in Week 6 to +1100 in Week 7. 


Week 7's biggest loser can definitively be given to Stanford running back Bryce Love, after the nation's preseason Heisman-favorite was held out of his team's second consecutive loss in a 40-21 upset to Utah, plummeting his odds from +1800 to +10000. 


If the first half of the 2018-19 college football season has taught us anything, it's that Tagovailoa is a clear-cut favorite.
