Heisman-Level Performance Against Michigan

Walker’s sudden rise in the Heisman odds boards came after a Heisman-level performance against rival Michigan last weekend. Both Top 10 ranked teams entered the game undefeated and Walker stole the show with a dominant performance in one of the biggest college football games of the year.

The Spartans junior RB accounted for more than 50% of Michigan State’s offensive output with 197 rushing yards on 23 carries while scoring all of the Spartans’ five touchdowns, all on the ground. Walker scored twice in the first half but Michigan State trailed 23-14 at the half. That deficit grew to 30-14 midway through the third quarter but that’s when Walker turned on the afterburners and rallied the Spartans to a thrilling 37-33 win.

Michigan State is now ranked 5th in the latest AP Poll and as long as the Spartans keep on winning, Walker will be in the Heisman conversation. He entered the Michigan game with +1600 odds but has moved all the way up to the +350 to +500 range, depending on which of the best college football sportsbooks you use.
