According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Petty is 10/1 to win the Heisman this year. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is still the favorite at 5/2, while Oregon's Marcus Mariota is 5/1 and Ohio State signal-caller Braxton Miller is 11/2. Those are the only players listed ahead of Petty in terms of Heisman odds.

Petty completed 250 of 403 passes for 4,200 yards last season for the Bears. He also tossed 32 touchdowns to just three interceptions and finished the 2013 college football season with a QB rating of 174.3. His completion percentage was 62.0 for the year, which is excellent for a signal-caller that put the ball in the air as much as he did for Baylor.

Even though he had an outstanding 2013, Baylor coach Art Briles believes that Petty will have a better season in 2014 than he did last year.

"He has a vast amount of experience now, to help him improve in everything that he does," Briles told FOX Sports. "Leadership, decision-making, things that can give him an edge on the field."

Not only is Petty a Heisman candidate, he should also be in the discussion to potentially be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft 

"I expect him, as crazy as it sounds, to be even more productive, even better and to lead us to even greater heights than he did last year," says Briles.

It's setting up to be a great year for the redshirt senior.
