Boykin, Elliot atop current Bovada odds for Heisman | FanBuzz

2015 Heisman Trophy Odds (as of 7/2/15):

Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU: 6/1

Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Ohio State: 7/1

Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia: 9/1

Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State: 10/1

Cody Kessler, QB, USC: 12/1

Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State: 12/1

Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama: 16/1

10. James McFarland, Sr. DE. McFarland will likely split his time with Josh Carraway at the defensive end position, but he would easily be a full-time starter on another Big 12 team. He led the Horned Frogs in sacks a year ago with seven and finished the year with the most tackles for loss among returning players with 12. His biggest game came on the biggest stage with a defensive MVP win at the Peach Bowl after intercepting a pass in the end zone for a TCU touchdown and adding a sack.

"The only team that's coming at me right now is really TCU. I've been up there like three times already. Right now, I'd say my commitment is probably at about 75 percent to LSU."

Men’s track & field produced another national champion in Ronnie Baker in the 60-meter dash, which broke a 15-year-old school record.
