IFWT_Heisman  2

Yes, it’s that time!  Jameis Winston, Jordan Lynch, Johnny Manziel, Tre Mason, AJ McCarron and Andre Williams were announced as the six finalists for the Heisman Trophy.  The ceremony takes place this Saturday night.  Details after the jump…




Four quarterbacks and two running backs were named Heisman Trophy finalists on Monday.

Quarterbacks Jordan Lynch of Northern Illinois, Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M, AJ McCarron of Alabama and Jameis Winston of Florida State were all invited to the Heisman ceremony on Saturday (8 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Auburn’s Tre Mason and Boston College’s Andre Williams are the running backs.

The six finalists invited to the ceremony in New York are the most since 1994.

Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win the award Saturday night in New York now that a sexual assault complaint against him in Tallahassee, Fla., has been closed without charges being filed.

He could become the second straight freshman to win the award as the top player in college football after Manziel won it last season.
