Winston, McCarron and Manziel were announced as the finalists for the Maxwell player of the year award on Monday.
After McCarron on Bovada’s board comes Williams, the first major college player to rush for 2,000 yards since 2008, and Miller at 15-1.
Carr and Manziel are 20-1. Lynch comes in at 28-1. Petty and Mariota are off the board, which doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t get back on it. Williams, Miller, Carr and Lynch were off the board last week.
Maybe this week Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd or Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater can re-emerge, or Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey and the Wildcats can follow their upset of No. 12 Oregon with another against No. 13 Arizona State.
“Saturday was a ballot-buster for me, no question,” said Joshua Kendall of The State in Columbia, S.C. “I’m back to square one unless there is something before square one, in which case I am there.”
