On Tuesday, Bovada released Heisman odds that had Gurley as the favorite at 8/5, overtaking Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. Gurley was suspended indefinitely on Thursday for an ongoing investigation into an alleged violation of NCAA rules. 

Prescott threw for 259 yards and accounted for five touchdowns in Mississippi State's upset win over Texas A&M last Saturday, propelling him to the forefront of the conversation.
