Top 4 Big 12 Heisman Candidates for the 2020 Season
The Big 12 is one of college football's most-prominent conferences. Between Oklahoma, Texas and Baylor, it seems like the conference has a school in the national title conversation pretty much every season.
However, to get into that conversation you have to have great players that put you there. With that in mind, let's take a look at the Big 12's top-four Heisman candidates by the odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
4. Spencer Sanders, QB, Oklahoma State (+6000)
The starting quarterback for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, Spencer Sanders will need to improve on his 2019 numbers (2,065 yards, 16 TD, 11 INT) if he wants to get his name near the top of this conversation. Mike Gundy and OK State have been known for some high-flying offenses, so Sanders could have some dark-horse potential.
3. Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State (+5000)
Regarded as one of the nation's best running backs, Chuba Hubbard surely backs it up with his play. He comes in with the second-best odds of any running back to win the Heisman. If he can build off his 2,094-yard, 21-touchdown season from last year, it's going to be real difficult to not have him as a finalist for the Heisman.
2. Sam Ehlinger, QB, Texas (+2500)
Sam Ehlinger will try to become the next Vince Young in this regard in 2020. The returning starting quarterback threw 32 TDs and 10 INTs last season, and snagging a Heisman Trophy for a Texas team that expects to be in the National title talk would be a great way to end his career in Austin.
1. Spender Rattler, QB, Oklahoma (+1200)
Oklahoma quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy in back-to-back years in 2017 and 2018, and Jalen Hurts was even a finalist in 2019. Spencer Rattler will aim to make it three Heisman winners in the last four years for the Sooners as he takes over in Lincoln Reilly's high-powered offense.
