The Heisman Trophy ceremony will be held at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night, and three finalists will find out which of them will win it as they attend the ceremony in New York.
The Heisman Trophy is set to be awarded for the 80th time since its creation in 1935. The award will be available for one of three finalists who have been chosen to make the trip to New York for the ceremony.
Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper and Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon are the three finalists that have been selected.
Mariota and Cooper are both set to compete for the national championship while Gordon will be playing the Outback Bowl against Auburn following an embarrassing 59-0 loss in the Big Ten Championship.
Here is a prediction on how the voting standings will turn out.
3. Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
Gordon blew his final opportunity to impress the Heisman voters as he was held to 76 rushing yards on 26 carries, which is highly uncharacteristic for a running back who leads the nation in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. The Heisman voting takes recency and big games into strong consideration, so this dud of a performance is sure to hurt Gordon.
Plus, Wisconsin was unable to capitalize on Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett having a season-ending leg injury as they were shut out in the Big Ten title game. Alabama and Oregon are both headed to the playoff while Wisconsin is settling for the Outback Bowl, and team record is always taken into account as well.
Stats: 309 carries, 2,336 rushing yards, 26 touchdowns; 17 receptions, 151 receiving yards, 3 touchdowns
