Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson among Heisman finalists

Mayfield Jackson Love are Heisman hopefuls

Making the trip to NY will be Oklahoma Sooners redshirt quarterback Baker Mayfield, Stanford Cardinal junior running back Bryce Love and Louisville Cardinals junior quarterback Lamar Jackson.

All four of those players won the award. He's the ultimate competitor and victor, and is one of the greatest young men I've ever had the pleasure to coach.

Linebacker Brian Bosworth (1986), quarterback Josh Heupel (2000), quarterback Jason White (2003 and 2004), running back Adrian Peterson (2004), quarterback Sam Bradford (2008) and wide receiver Dede Westbrook (2016) were OU's other Heisman finalists.

One name that stood out all season long, though, was Baker Mayfield.

Love, a third-year junior, is Stanford's fifth Heisman finalist and seeks to join Jim Plunkett as his school's second Heisman victor.

The Downtown Athletic Club of NY has just announced the 2017 Heisman Trophy finalists. The Oklahoma quarterback was a dark-horse candidate entering the season, and he lived up to the billing and then some. He has another 310 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns. He also ranks second in passing touchdowns (41), third in total offense (357.7 ypg) and fourth in passing yards (333.8 per game).

Who's the most deserving?

He received the remaining two first-place votes in the survey. Love had 10 100-yards games and averaged 8.32 yards a carry. While the Cardinal lost some games this year, Stanford did enough to win the Pac-12 North division title before falling to the USC Trojans in the Pac-12 Championship by a field goal.

It's time for Baker Mayfield to book his return trip to New York City.
