1-Greg Ward Jr. (Houston, 40/1) – Ward rushed for 1,108 yards and 21 touchdowns while averaging 5.6 yards per carry in 2015. He completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 2,828 yards with a 17/6 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Ward led the Cougars to a 13-1 record and a convincing win over FSU at the Peach Bowl. They took their only loss of the season in a 20-17 defeat at UConn in which Ward saw limited playing time due to an injury. If Houston can upset Oklahoma in Week 1, Ward will immediately vault into the top tier of Heisman contenders. He’ll have a nine-game stretch in front of him where the Cougars will be heavily favored seven times. Two of those games will likely be short ‘chalk’ spots at Cincinnati and at Navy.

2-Seth Russell (Baylor, 25/1) – Before seeing his 2015 campaign cut short with a season-ending injury, Russell threw 29 TD passes in seven games. In most of those games that were all won by 18 points or more, his playing time was limited to 2-3 quarters. He threw for 2,104 yards and ran for 402 yards and six TDs.
