Mayfield, Jackson, Love are Heisman hopefuls

NEW YORK (AP) — Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, Louisville signal-caller Lamar Jackson and Stanford running back Bryce Love are the finalists for the Heisman Trophy, which will be presented Saturday in New York.

Mayfield has led the Sooners to the CFP semifinals after a 12-1 regular season. He has thrown for 4,340 yards, 41 touchdowns and just five interceptions this season.

Jackson’s 2017 stats include 3,489 passing yards, 25 TDs and six interceptions for the 8-4 Cardinals. Love has averaged 8.3 yards per carry for the Cardinal, running for 1,973 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Mayfield comes in as the clear front-runner, and Jackson is trying to join former Ohio State tailback Archie Griffin as the only players to win two Heisman trophies. Mayfield finished fourth in the voting two years ago and was third last season.

A&M introduces Fisher

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Jimbo Fisher has been introduced as the new football coach at Texas A&M after working out a 10-year, $75 million contract.

Fisher comes to College Station after going 83-23 in eight seasons at Florida State, leading the Seminoles to three ACC championships. He takes over for Kevin Sumlin, who was fired Nov. 26 after the Aggies finished the regular season 7-5 and 4-4 in the SEC.
