Jayden Daniels Heisman favorite Oregon loss

Washington Huskies win Pac-12 Championship, launching Jayden Daniels as Heisman favorite with impressive stats and a dramatic comeback victory.

The Washington Huskies pulled off a stunning victory over the Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 championship game, propelling them into the College Football Playoff. This victory also likely boosted Jayden Daniels' chances of winning the Heisman Trophy.

LSU's failure to qualify for a conference championship game meant that Daniels had to make his case with a comeback win over Texas A&M. Despite entering the week as a 120 underdog, Daniels' impressive performance has made him the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman at -1400.

Oregon's Bo Nix, who was previously favored to win the Heisman, saw his chances diminish after the Ducks' loss to Washington. Nix put up solid numbers in the game, but they fell short of Daniels' impressive season stats, which include 4,946 total yards and 50 touchdowns.

With Nix and Penix out of the running until their bowl games, and no other player having odds shorter than 10000, it seems that the Heisman is Daniels' to lose. Even with three losses, Daniels' performance this season has been exceptional, with only Lamar Jackson accounting for more total touchdowns in a Heisman-winning season.

It's clear that Daniels' performance has put him in a strong position to claim the Heisman Trophy, and the Washington Huskies' victory over the Oregon Ducks has only solidified his standing as a top contender for the prestigious award.
