On Monday, SuperBook released its new set of 2020 Heisman odds and the list included two familiar names for Penn State fans – quarterback Sean Clifford and linebacker Micah Parsons.

Clifford was given 40/1 odds, the same as Alabama running back Najee Harris. Parsons was given 100/1 odds, tying him with a multitude of players.

Clifford currently has the 13th-best odds among quarterbacks following Justin Fields (Ohio State), Trevor Lawrence (Clemson), Spencer Rattler (Oklahoma), Jamie Newman (Georgia), Ian Book (Notre Dame), Kedon Slovis (USC), Myles Brennan (LSU), Mac Jones (Alabama), Bo Nix (Auburn), D'Eriq King (Miami), and Adrian Martinez (lol) (Nebraska).

Parsons is the only defensive player to appear on this set of odds. Should he take home the trophy at year's end, he would be the first defensive player to do so since Michigan's Charles Woodson in 1997.

Aside from Fields and Martinez, Master Teague (Ohio State, 60/1), Michael Penix (Indiana, 100/1), Dylan McCaffrey (Michigan, 100/1), Rondale Moore (Purdue, 100/1), Tanner Morgan (Minnesota, 100/1), and Wan'dale Robinson (Nebraska, 100/1) were also named as Big Ten representatives on the list.

We'll have much more on what Clifford and Parsons will have to do in order to have a shot at winning a Heisman as the offseason progresses, but getting on these lists is a great start for their chances.
