Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson, & Bryce Love are the 2017 Heisman Finalists
Stanford running back Bryce Love will join two of last year’s Heisman Trophy finalists in New York for the 2017 presentation.
Last year’s Heisman winner, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, and Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield round out this year’s group of players who will be in the running for the most prestigious award in football.

— The Heisman Trophy (@HeismanTrophy) December 5, 2017
Jackson took home the award in 2016 as a sophomore and will have the chance to become just the second player in college football history to win the award twice. Ohio State’s Archie Griffin won the award in 1974 and 1975.
This marks just the third year since 2009 that Alabama didn’t have a player invited to New York. The presentation will take place at 8 PM on Saturday and air nationally on ESPN.
