Aaron Murray Among 2012 Heisman Favorites In Las Vegas

Noted college sports oddsmaker and amateur investigative reporter Danny Sheridan has posted his odds for the 2012 Heisman race, which is predictably filled with big-name returning quarterbacks at contending schools. Among those gunslingers? Why, none other than Aaron Murray!

Murray threw for 3,149 yards and 35 touchdowns last season, pushing the Bulldogs from a quagmire at 0-2 to SEC Eastern Division Champions on a ten game winning streak before losing the conference championship to LSU and the Capital One Bowl to Michigan State.

Joining Murray on Sheridan's early odds sheet are SEC neighbors Marcus Lattimore of South Carolina and Tyler Wilson of Arkansas, but the favorites entering the season will come from outside of the Mason-Dixon: USC quarterback Matt Barkley and WIsconsin running back Montee Ball are Sheridan's favorites, at 5:1.
