How Oregon’s Blow Out Win Impacts Heisman, Championship Markets article feature image

The Oregon Ducks manhandled the rival Oregon State Beavers to punch a ticket to the futures/pac-12-odds">Pac-12 title game. They now have a chance to win the conference before heading to the Big-10 next year.

That wasn’t all, though, as the sixth-ranked Ducks’ 31-7 win over the 16th-ranked Oregon State Beavers caused a shakeup in the NCAA Football futures market.

The biggest change was in Bo Nix’s chances to take home the Heisman Trophy. The senior quarterback went 33-for-40 for 367 yards and two touchdowns while running the ball six times for 31 yards and another touchdown. Nix entered the game with the second-best odds to win the coveted award at +125, according to FanDuel, trailing only LSU’s Jayden Daniels (-110). His odds went up to +110 following his performance while Daniels’ dropped to +100, setting up what should be a fascinating fight to the finish.

Meanwhile, Oregon entered the night with the fourth-best odds to win the National Championship at +650, trailing only the Georgia Bulldogs (+230), Michigan Wolverines (+300) and Ohio State Buckeyes (+500). They still have the fourth-best odds, but they’re now +600. Meanwhile, the other three teams’ odds remain unchanged for the moment.

Finally, Oregon’s Pac-12 Championship Game against the fourth-ranked Washington Huskies is as big as it gets. It won’t just determine the conference’s winner, but may also decide which team makes the college playoff. The opening line has Oregon as -7.5 favorites of the Huskies.
