Despite Another Victory, Penix Jr. Odds to Win Heisman Get Longer

SEATTLE, WA ( - Michael Penix Jr. odds to win the Heisman Trophy fell to third shortest despite his team winning in Oregon State.  That's because he was just 13-for-28 passing (46.4%) for 162 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and ran for a 5-yard TD in that game. His odds lengthened from +280 to +500.

This represented Penix Jr's lowest passing performance game of the season thus far.

Penix Jr has not fared well against the Beavers in the past, which may explain why the Huskies came into Saturday's game as a rare underdog.  His previous bottom-end number of 57.7 precent occurred in a game against Oregon State last season.

With the win, Washington clinched a Pac 12 Championship berth.

“We had to find a way to win and put the ball in the end zone. We didn’t do it as much as we wanted to today, but it was about finding a way to win.” Penix said. “The defense made big time stops when we needed it the most.”
