ESPN announced the finalists that will be invited to New York City for Saturday’s Heisman Trophy presentation. Ricky Williams joined the Network to make the announcement.
Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey and DeShaun Watson are the three finalists for the award.
As expected, Derrick Henry topped the list. Henry has had an impressive season rushing for 1986 yards and 23 touchdowns.
The Alabama running back is the favorite to win the award. Christian McCaffrey had an impressive performance in the Pac-12 championship game. He had 207 rushing yards and 105 receiving yards along with two touchdowns.
Baker Mayfield is one noticeable snub from the list. This year, only a small number of players were invited to New York City. The ceremony is Saturday, December 7, at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN
