2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: Best Value Candidate No. 8

RB Chuba Hubbard, Oklahoma State 20/1

It would be nice if you could get better odds than 20/1, but it’s still enough value to give Hubbard a thought for the Heisman.

However, this is no longer a running back award unless he’s leading a team to the national championship.

Only three running backs have won the Heisman since 1999, when Wisconsin’s Ron Dayne became college football’s all-time leading rusher.

Reggie Bush in 2005 – and yes, he did win it – on a team that played for the national title.

Mark Ingram won in 2009 for a national championship Alabama team, and Derrick Henry won in 2015 for another Tide title squad.

Oklahoma State isn’t going to win the national championship.

Hubbard is brilliant – he ran for 2,094 yards and 21 scores – and he should be a 2,000-yard runner again if he can stay healthy, but as post-Dayne Badger backs can attest to, there’s a hard Heisman ceiling no matter what the stats are.
