The odds of Jameis Winston winning back-to-back Heisman trophies after his one-game suspension for shouting vulgar language in the Florida State student union last week went down, according to one bookmaker.
Bovada has the Florida State quarterback listed this week as a 20/1 shot to win the Heisman. He started the season as the 9/2 favorite and then went to 15/2 and 10/1 until he was forced to sit out last Saturday night’s overtime victory over Clemson.
Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is now Bovada’s favorite at 2/1, with Texas A&M running back Kenny Hill and Georgia running back Todd Gurley at 10/1.
Meanwhile, Winston’s adviser, David Cornwell, said Tuesday on Twitter that the quarterback will cooperate in the school’s Title IX investigation into an alleged sexual assault that occurred in December 2012 and came to last November.
Cornwell said Winston “looks forward to clearing his name.”
Winston was never charged, but Florida State is part of a federal government investigation examining 76 schools’ handling of sexual assault.
Cornwell said he expects the results to be the same as the local state attorney’s office, which decided last year not to file charges against Winston.
