Mayfield is the seventh player to finish in the top five of Heisman voting three times, joining Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard of Army, Doak Walker of SMU, Griffin, Herschel Walker of Georgia and Tim Tebow of Florida. The same schools were involved in an even closer battle in 2009, when victor Mark Ingram received five more first-place votes than Toby Gerhart. "We'll see next week".
One service, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, listed Darnold as the preseason favorite at 5-1, followed by Mayfield (7-1) and Jackson (8-1). He finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2015, but was not invited to NY.
Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield is considered the odds-on favorite to win, and he'll be joined in NY this week by fellow finalists Lamar Jackson of Louisville and Bryce Love of Stanford.
Mayfield was sublime in that 2016 season, making a trip to NY as a Heisman finalist, but in 2017, he was next-level great, running an offense that exceeded an already historic yards per play in 2016 by a full yard in 2017, and leading Oklahoma to its second berth in the College Football Playoff.
Still, we'll engage in an exercise for the finalists: Why they'll win it, and why they won't.
Jackson, last year's Heisman victor, leads the nation in total offense at 411 yards per game. He led all other quarterbacks in completion percentage (71) and passer efficiency (203.8). He was also 2 for 2 passing with a touchdown. But Heisman voters have never been comfortable with repeat winners.
Not making that cut was a couple of talented running backs. Over the past few years, Johnny Manziel and Jameis Winston were unable to duplicate their awards. He was the unanimous Pac-12 offensive player of the year, averaging 164.4 yards per game. 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.
Love isn't the nation's leading rusher.
San Diego State's Rashaad Penny leads the nation in rushing (168.9) and all-purpose yards (224.8). Since then, opponents have held him to under 100 yards just once this season, when Washington State limited him to 69 yards in a Stanford loss. Along with the aforementioned McCaffrey and Gerhart, quarterback Andrew Luck finished second in 2011 and 2010.
