Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard and quarterback Spencer Sanders fell inside the top 15 in odds to win the Heisman Trophy in December, according to Bovada.

Hubbard is tied with Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book (+2000) for the eighth-best odds, while Sanders (+3300) is 14th to win award given annually to the most outstanding college football player in the country.

Hubbard, who led the nation in rushing yards in 2019, has the highest odds for a running back, while Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence (+225) is the overall favorite.

Bovada does have Georgia quarterback Jamie Newman tied with Alabama quarterback Mac Jones (+1600) ahead of Hubbard, but Newman — a Wake Forest graduate transfer — decided to opt out of the season to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft.

A quarterback has won the Heisman four straight years and nine of the past 10 years, with Alabama running back Derrick Henry’s victory in 2015 as the only non-QB winner in that span. Barry Sanders is the only player to win the Heisman in OSU history back in 1988.
