Penn State’s Saquon Barkley is not a Heisman finalist. Instead, three other players are: Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, Stanford RB Bryce Love and Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield.
Barkley was looking to be Penn State’s first Heisman finalist since Larry Johnson in 2002. Johnson finished third behind USC’s Carson Palmer and Iowa’s Brad Banks. John Cappelletti is Penn State’s one Heisman winner. He won the award in 1973.
Barkley had 1,134 rushing yards with 16 touchdowns. He also had 594 receiving yards with 3 touchdowns, 426 kick return yards with 2 touchdowns and a passing touchdown.
Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is the clear favorite to win the Heisman Trophy this season.
