Heisman Trophy finalists announced: Mayfield, Jackson, Love named

Heisman Trophy finalists announced: Mayfield, Jackson, Love named”

One Oklahoma student is trying to make sure the most iconic moment of the Sooners and Baker Mayfield's season gets memorialized. "They both had great seasons and deserve this tremendous honor".

Mayfield, though, will come to Manhattan as the clear favorite.

Penn State's Saquon Barkley is second in the nation in all-purpose yards (179.5) and is fifth with 21 touchdowns, including two kickoff return touchdowns for the No. 9 Nittany Lions.

Mayfield is joined by Lamar Jackson of Louisville and Bryce Love of Stanford as finalists for the most prestigious award in college sports.

"He looks like the Heisman", TCU quarterback Kenny Hill said Saturday after the Big 12 championship game, in which Mayfield threw four touchdown passes in a 41-17 victory at AT&T Stadium. He led the Sooners to three Big 12 titles in three years since transferring from Lubbock. He was involved in an incident where a video of Norman police tackling him this past summer went viral before the season. Finally, he was suspended for a portion of the West Virginia game over Thanksgiving weekend after he was captured on television making an obscene gesture at the Kansas bench the week before. Oklahoma's previous five Heisman winners have trophies in Heisman Park. KOCO 5 Sports Director Bryan Keating will be in NY when the announcement is made. His stats this season are nearly similar to his Heisman campaign last season, as the Louisville signal caller threw for 3,489 yards with 25 touchdowns.

Love leads all Power 5 players with 164.4 yards rushing per game.

If Mayfield is awarded the Heisman trophy, a petition on Change.org calls for his statue in Heisman Park to depict Mayfield planting the flag on a field.

THE SKINNY: Love emerged as a star right from the start this season, rushing for 564 yards in back-to-back wins over UCLA and Arizona State at the end of September.

The Heisman has been naming finalists and bringing them to NY for the presentation since 1982.

Actually, Tebow is the only three time Heisman finalist since 1982, winning on his first try in 2007 and finishing 3rd and 5th in 2008 and 2009, respectively. "He's put up numbers all year, played outstanding". The others are Doug Flutie (1984 winner), Vinny Testaverde (1986 winner), Danny Wuerffel (1996 winner), and Reggie Bush (2005 victor, whose win, somewhat hilariously, erased from the voting history page on the Heisman website). Mayfield is a finalist for the second straight year; he finished fourth in Heisman voting in 2015 and third last year.
