Mayfield, who just led Oklahoma to the Big 12 Championship and a spot in the College Football Playoff, is considered by many to be the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield was named one of three Heisman Trophy finalists Monday night on ESPN.

Jackson's 2017 season has been better than past year with regards to his completion percentage and interception count, but his team's lack of success could be an issue for Heisman voters. The victor of the award, which goes to college football's most outstanding player, will be revealed Saturday at the Downtown Athletic Club in NY.

Mayfield, the Heisman frontrunner, is putting up huge numbers this season.

Mayfield threw for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns - both second in the country behind Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph and Missouri's Drew Lock, respectively - and added five rushing touchdowns in 13 games. Mayfield set an FBS record for passing efficiency, breaking his own record set in 2016.

No. 2-ranked OU, which behind Mayfield leads the nation in yards per game (583.3) and yards per play (8.4; next highest is 7.6), will make its 51st bowl appearance when it takes on No. 3 Georgia in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual on January 1 at 4:10 p.m. CT. He has another 310 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns.

Firefighters say without Angulo's actions, the children probably would have suffered severe smoke inhalation and burns. The "Corridor of Hope" will be located about two miles from where Angulo pulled the children from the blaze.

Jackson improved as a passer, completing 60.4 percent of his passes for 3,489 yards and 25 touchdowns compared to just six interceptions. Considering he was averaging 198 yards per game in the first seven weeks before he suffered an ankle injury, it's hard to imagine what he could have done had he stayed fully healthy all season. Jackson averaged 411 yards of total offense per game in 2017, by far leading the nation.
