Will a Mountain West player have a shot?

Even before Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith won the Heisman Trophy for this season, odds on the 2021 race were out even prior to the announcement.

These odds for next year are basically for fun but we like to have fun and especially so when it involves a Mountain West player. We know that winning the Heisman from a non-power conference has not happened since BYU’s Ty Detmer won it in 1990 and just a few times since has players outside of those leagues have even been a finalist.

Over at BetOnline, they released these way-too-early odds, and at the top are the usual suspects from schools like USC, Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia.

The one Mountain West player on the list is Nevada quarterback Carson Strong. He was the conference player of the year and was amazing. His odds are 25/1 which are good for 22nd, so not great.

His numbers this year rivaled Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence who finished second in the award, but there is a double-standard since Lawrence played for a playoff team and the Wolf Pack did not.

It also depends on what players return to Reno for the upcoming year and there is no bigger name than Romeo Doubs who was a deep threat machine who averaged over 17 yards per catch and had many catches over 50 yards. Doubs returning to town would help Strong make a case by throwing the ball to one of the best wide receivers in the country.

It will take an elite year and Strong to have Nevada around the top 10 to just be a finalist but once you are a finalist then anything can happen.
