The Heisman Trophy award will be given out for the 83rd time in New York City on Saturday night…hours after the Army Navy game is played in Philly.
Incidentally, Army is looking to extend their winning streak in the storied game to two straight years after winning last year and snapping Navy’s incredible 14-year winning streak.
But after that the Heisman will be awarded to one of one of three men who won nearly that many games this season alone.
The three finalists are:
- Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield—who is going to win and they need to have some people to stand next to him for some drama before they call his name.
- Reigning Heisman winner Louisville QB Lamar Jackson—which right there tells you he is not going to win again because the only man ever to win two was Archie Griffin of Ohio State and the committee never gives it to someone twice anymore.
- And just to have a running back up there, Stanford running back Bryce Love was also chosen.
That’s it, just three.
Normally, they have four or five, but why waste all that when Mayfield has it all wrapped up? No disrespect to these other fine young athletes, but Love is a junior and will have a shot at it next year and, like I said, Jackson already has one.
