The three finalists this year are Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield, Louisville Cardinals quarterback Lamar Jackson and Stanford Cardinal running back Bryce Love. However, since they began inviting finalists to the award ceremony in 1982, Jackson becomes the sixth former victor to be invited back as a finalist the next season.

Eight players have been invited to multiple Heisman ceremonies without winning the trophy - BYU QB Robbie Bosco (1984, 1985), Iowa State RB Troy Davis (1995, 1996), Purdue QB Drew Brees (1999, 2000), Miami QB Ken Dorsey (2001, 2002), Arkansas RB Darren McFadden (2006, 2007), Texas QB Colt McCoy (2008, 2009), Stanford QB Andrew Luck (2010, 2011), and Clemson QB Deshaun Watson (2015, 2016).

After his two performances against them this season, Baker Mayfield has the TCU Horned Frogs' endorsement for the Heisman Trophy.

Mayfield could be the first quarterback with an NCAA pass efficiency rating over 200. Oklahoma plays Georgia in the Rose Bowl semifinal on January 1.

However it may be wise for Markle to try and get her head around the rules, as they're largely still followed in the royal court. The current rules on who-curtseys-to-who were first drawn up by the Queen's private secretary, in a document in 2005.

Jackson's numbers have been better than last season in some categories, but Louisville (8-4) has not had the big wins to go with it. Jackson added 1,443 yards and 17 touchdowns rushing the football, and he averaged 411 yards of total offense per game in 2017, leading the nation in a runaway. "They both had great seasons and deserve this tremendous honor".

THE SKINNY: Love emerged as a star right from the start this season, rushing for 564 yards in back-to-back wins over UCLA and Arizona State at the end of September. An ankle injury slowed Love the last month of the season, but he still led the nation in rushes of at least 50 yards with 12.

Not making that cut was a couple of talented running backs. He's also second in passing yards and passing touchdowns, all while throwing only 5 interceptions. He was considered the favorite heading into the final month of the season, but the Nittany Lions lost twice, and his production fell off until a late surge. Against Nevada three weeks ago, he scored on a rush, a kickoff return and a punt return.
