College football's star-power-lacking Week 9 brought back a lot of hope to programs outside the state of Alabama, especially in the 2018-19 Heisman race, as we head into Week 10.
Three of the top four favorites from the Week 9 Heisman odds in Tua Tagovailoa, Kyler Murray, and Shea Patterson all sat out this past weekend with their respective teams on bye week, but that doesn't mean there weren't serious changes in their odds to win the award come Monday.

Tua Tagovailoa -250

Despite not having a platform to perform due to a bye, it's proven a rare occurrence to see Tagovailoa hold steady in his odds for the Heisman race, and quarterbacks like Oklahoma's Murray and Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins should consider that push a huge win in this race.
Especially considering Haskins improved by the same amount (from +1400 in Week 9 to +1100 in Week 10) as Murray did when his Ohio State team was on the same bye week as Alabama.
