Alabama Crimson Tide running back Trent Richardson, Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III, Stanford Cardinal, quarterback Andrew Luck, LSU Tigers cornerback/kick returner Tyrann Mathieu Wisconsin Badgers running back Montee Ball are all headed to the Downtown Athletic Club to hope to hear their name called as the winner of the 2011 Heisman Trophy.
The overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman however is currently still Baylor's Robert Griffin III at 1/20 odds, according to Bodog. Griffin's odds took a drastic turn earlier in the week after championship weekend closed out. Alabama's Trent Richardson follows Griffin in the odds at 9/2, as he looks to become the second Alabama player in the past three years to win the trophy. Slightly after Richardson is Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with 11/2 odds.
Rounding out the list are two players least likely to win the award, especially looking at Bodog's odds for the players. Wisconsin running back Montee Ball, who had an eye popping 38 total touchdowns for the Badgers in 2011. Ball's odds however look to make him an unlikely winner, sitting at just 75/1 to win. LSU's Tyrann Mathieu has been a big play machine for the undefeated Tigers, but he'd need to make another big play to win the Heisman as a defensive player with just 150/1 odds to win. It's a good thing the Honey Badger don't care.
