Mayfield is joined by Lamar Jackson of Louisville and Bryce Love of Stanford as finalists for the most prestigious award in college sports. As a result, Mayfield is expected to win the 2017 Heisman Trophy in resounding fashion, so resounding that you can't even wager on it. And what's a good campaign without a little political slander? The Downtown Athletic Club presented Smith with a Heisman Trophy three years later. Mayfield is the ninth Oklahoma player to be selected as a finalist, matching Miami for the most from one school.

"I want to thank all my teammates and coaches for achieving this honor together".
Love is second in the nation in rushing at 164.42 yards per game and is averaging 8.32 yards per carry for the 15th-ranked Cardinal.
Mayfield, a senior, finished third in last year's Heisman voting, which is done by members of the media and past Heisman winners. Ohio State running back Archie Griffin became the first player to do so when he won the award in 1974 and '75. He also scored 17 touchdowns. At the end of the day, it's a quarterback's trophy unless a running back does something unforeseen.
