Oregon’s Bo Nix (+1000) is among those making waves. Contrary to whispers questioning his drive, Nix has made it clear with his performances that he is in the chase for the Heisman. He leads a formidable football team that has demonstrated their determination and skill.

However, while Nix is catching eyes in the Pac-12, another player out west is starting to generate considerable buzz. Michael Penix Jr. (+380) is the name on everyone’s lips, though some feel we’ve yet to see the full spectrum of his talent. After transferring to Washington, Penix has showcased glimpses of brilliance but hasn’t had those defining Heisman moments yet. Nevertheless, considering the numbers he’s putting up against teams like Boise, Tulsa, Michigan State, and Cal, it’s evident that Penix has the potential to dominate the competition.

And, if we’re discussing potential, we can’t ignore the gauntlet of matchups that lie ahead for Penix. On October 14, Washington clashes with No. 9 Oregon, and by the season’s close, they will have also faced No. 8 USC, No. 10 Utah, No. 19 Oregon State, and No. 16 Washington State. These matchups present prime opportunities for Penix to prove himself on a grand stage. If Washington remains unbeaten by season’s end, it’s likely due to Penix’s prowess. However, it’s essential to note that an unbeaten record might be necessary for his Heisman aspirations.

The situation is somewhat parallel for Caleb Williams (+380). His performances have been outstanding, but does he have the upper hand in the Pac-12? The potential elimination game on November 4 between USC and Washington will be a thrilling spectacle, and we eagerly anticipate its implications on the Heisman race.

While the current discourse hints at a West Coast bias, the talent and potential of Penix are undeniable. Whether or not we’ve seen his best performances to date remains a topic of debate, but there’s no doubt that the coming weeks will be critical in determining the fate of many Heisman hopefuls. The odds are set, and the stakes are high. It’s a race that promises to keep fans on the edge of their seats until the very end.
