Heisman finalists named

NEW YORK (AP) — Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts and Ohio State teammates quarterback Justin Fields and defensive end Chase Young will join LSU quarterback Joe Burrow as Heisman Trophy finalists.

The top vote-getters for college football’s most famous player of the year award were announced, and three of them were quarterbacks who transferred.

Burrow is the clear front-runner to win the Heisman on Saturday night in New York after a record-breaking season, leading the Tigers (13-0) to the top seed in the College Football Playoff. He would be LSU’s second winner and first since running back Billy Cannon in 1959. The 60-year gap between winners would be the longest for any school with multiple winners.
