David Pollack Names His Top Five Candidates For The Heisman Trophy

Top Heisman Trophy picks are out, and former "College GameDay" analyst David Pollack rates LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels as the frontrunner.

Daniels had an extraordinary game, setting a record with 606 total offensive yards, including 374 passing yards and 234 rushing yards, along with 5 touchdowns in a win against Florida.

He made history as the first FBS player to throw for over 350 yards and rush for over 200 yards in the same game.

Currently, BetMGM gives Daniels +400 odds to win the Heisman.

Pollack's second choice is Washington QB Michael Penix Jr., who has led his team to an undefeated 7-0 record and tops the nation in passing yards with 3,533.

Interestingly, Pollack doesn't include Oregon quarterback Bo Nix in his top picks, despite Nix being the current betting favorite.

Nix and Oregon boast a 9-1 record, with a sixth-place ranking by the CFP. Nix has impressive stats, throwing for over 3,100 yards, completing 77% of passes, and making 29 touchdowns with only 2 interceptions.

The exclusion of Nix from Pollack's list might raise some eyebrows among college football enthusiasts.

With only a few weeks left in the season, the Heisman race is heating up, and unexpected choices are creating buzz.

Keep an eye on these players as the college football season approaches its climax, and the Heisman Trophy winner is revealed.
