After another dominant performance and victory, Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. is now a Heisman Trophy co-favorite with USC’s Caleb Williams at +400.

In his first game against a ranked opponent this season, Oregon’s Bo Nix threw for 276 yards and three touchdowns in a blowout win over undefeated Colorado. Nix’s Heisman odds are now +1200, which is about what they were when the season started.
