Here are the finalists for the Heisman Trophy.
The 2017 Heisman Trophy finalists were just revealed on ESPN.
Only three players will be headed to New York City this Saturday for the Heisman Trophy presentation.
They are Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, Stanford running back Bryce Love and Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield. Jackson won the award last year, while Mayfield is the odds-on favorite to win it this weekend.
Congrats to our 2017 #Heisman finalists: @Lj_era8 of @UofLFootball, @Blovee_20 of @StanfordFball & @baker_mayfield6 of @OU_Football. See you in New York, gentlemen! #Heisman2017 #HeismanWeek #MostPrestigiousAwardInSports pic.twitter.com/8YGXj3xMME

Penn State running back Saquon Barkley looked like the Heisman favorite until late October, and ultimately didn’t get the invite to NYC. He looks like the most obvious potential “snub.”
ESPN will broadcast the 2017 Heisman Trophy presentation Saturday night from New York City. Coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET.
