Heisman Trophy finalists announced: Mayfield, Jackson, Love named

Heisman Trophy finalists announced: Mayfield, Jackson, Love named

Mayfield is trying to become the sixth Heisman victor from Oklahoma and third Sooners quarterback (Jason White and Sam Bradford) to win since 2003. 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.

Andrews led the Sooners in receptions and paced the nation's tight ends with 906 receiving yards, thriving as Mayfield's most dependable target in all game situations.

Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor, becomes the first victor to earn a trip back to the ceremony since Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel won in 2012 and returned as a finalist in 2013. Mayfield has tossed 41 touchdown passes and rushed for another five, while he's thrown just five interceptions.

Love is averaging a mind-boggling 8.3 yards per carry this season and has scored 17 touchdowns. In reality, Suh was the most dominant player in college football that year for Nebraska, but the nature of playing along the defensive line made him a long shot to win. Even more impressive is that he's rushed for more than 100 yards in nine games, while also rushing for 263 yards and 301 yards in two contests. "They both had great seasons and deserve this tremendous honor". Quarterbacks Josh Huepel, Jason White and Sam Bradford are OU's other winners.

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 finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2015, but was not invited to NY.

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

"The guys I've been playing with and the coaches I've had, especially Coach (Lincoln) Riley, we've had success but this year's been a special one", Mayfield said in the statement.
