Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker came out victorious in a top 10 battle against Alabama this afternoon, leading the Volunteers to a 52-49 victory. The Vol gunslinger was excellent, going 21-30 through the air for 385 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. He also added an additional 14 rushes for 56 yards on the ground.

More importantly, he played a large role in helping Tennessee take down Alabama for the first time since 2006. With 15 seconds left, he completed a pair of big passes to put the Vols in field goal range, allowing for kicker Chase McGrath to boot the game-winning field goal as time expired.

Hendon Hooker Heisman Trophy odds

Odds this week: +500
Odds last week: +1200

Hooker’s odds have gone up compared to where they were a week ago. He has overtaken USC’s Caleb Williams for the second spot, now sitting only behind Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud (-120) on the board. He was going blow for blow in this game with Alabama’s Bryce Young (+1400) and the two gunslingers were actually trading the No. 2 spot in real time throughout the second half. This entire game will serve as Hooker’s “Heisman moment” and he’ll have a solid case for the award.
