Football will always be our focus, but every day we’ll cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more in Scarlet Sunrise.

C.J. Stroud vaults to top of Heisman Trophy odds board

Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud continues to get better.

The Buckeyes first-year signal-caller is putting up insane numbers this season, and at least one sports book in Las Vegas have finally caught on.

Stroud is now the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, given to the most outstanding college football player, next month. Stroud (+150 on Fan duel) took over the top spot from Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, who is right behind him at +200. Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III is third at +450.

With a few more performances like he has put up lately, Stroud is going to earn a major piece of individual hardware — and maybe lead the Buckeyes to some team trophies, too.

Archie Griffin joins the Tim May Podcast

Ohio State legend Archie Griffin needs no introduction for the Tim May Podcast. The two-time Heisman Trophy winner is perhaps the greatest running back in program history.

Griffin breaks down what makes Henderson such a star and what the future may hold for a player hailed as the most complete running back coming out of the high school rankings in the past decade.

Ohio State’s offense looks its best when Henderson looks like he did on Saturday. Going forward, his production appears to be on an upswing in both the run game and passing game.

Will he keep it up?

Join the show to find out what Griffin believes is in store. You will not want to miss his analysis on Henderson and the rest of this Ohio State team in the latest edition of the Tim May Podcast.
