Russell Wilson, the Wisconsin Badgers quarterback has shot up the charts and is now the odds-on favourite to strike the pose, according to off last Saturday night’s thrashing of the 8th ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers, Wilson now leads the Heisman candidate pack at 3/1 odds.

The Badgers’ toughest opponent is behind them, leaving many to believe they can run the Big 10 Conference table.

This marks the first week this season Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is no longer the favourite.

Trailing Wilson:

Andrew Luck: 9/2

Landry Jones: 5/1

Trent Richardson: 6/1

Kellen Moore: 7/1
