Monday night, the Heisman Trust made official what's always been assumed: Mayfield is a Heisman finalist for the second year in a row. He will try to eclipse 2,000 yards when Stanford (9-4) faces TCU in the Alamo Bowl on December 28.
The 2016 Heisman victor as a sophomore, Jackson had another impressive season. His fellow finalists include one of the the nation's best rushers and a man looking to become the first repeat Heisman victor since Ohio State's Archie Griffin did it in 1974 and 1975. He joins Ty Detmer, Jason White, Matt Leinart, Tim Tebow and Johnny Manziel as Heisman winners who made it back to NY as a finalist.

Jackson also leads the NCAA in total offense per game (411.0 total yards per game), total yards (4,932) and is tied for third in total touchdowns (42).
Love, meanwhile, totaled 1,973 yards and 17 touchdowns on the ground in 2017.
Authorities register case to probe Peshawar Agriculture Directorate terror attack
Those injured in the attack include a gatekeeper, journalist of a Channel-24 channel, two students among others. Officials refuted the militants' claim that the agriculture directorate was housing any intelligence office.
In recent interviews, Penn State's record-breaking running back had talked about the possibility of not being invited to NY for the Heisman Trophy ceremony, and how he was OK with it. It's the second straight year for Mayfield to be named a finalist. Love had 10 100-yards games and averaged 8.32 yards a carry. He now leads the nation in passing efficiency rating, completion percentage, yards per pass and multiple other categories. The Cardinal finished 9-4 and earned a trip to the Alamo Bowl. He did not make an obscene gesture on the field and get suspended like Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield.
He is in line to be the sixth Sooner to win the award and the third OU quarterback so honored in the last 15 years, joining Jason White (2003) and Sam Bradford (2008). He has a chance to become the sixth Sooner Heisman victor and the first Heisman victor to begin his career as a "walk-on" athlete. Mayfield set an FBS record for passing efficiency, breaking his own record set in 2016. He's a Heisman finalist for the second year in a row after leading the Sooners to a Big 12 title and berth in the College Football Playoff (Rose Bowl vs. Georgia). He finished fourth in the 2015 Heisman balloting. The public at large is granted one overall fan vote, thanks to Heisman's Premier Partner, Nissan North America. "We look forward to recognizing their remarkable individual accomplishments and celebrating the victor of the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night".
