Transfer quarterbacks again lead Heisman Trophy finalists

Britt during Auburn at Texas A&M

The Sooners will play Burrow and LSU in the College Football Playoff in the Peach Bowl on December 28 in Atlanta. The last two winning quarterbacks, Murray and Mayfield, were both transfers, and this year will likely make it three straight transfer QBs to win the Heisman. Young, who'll likely be a top-five pick in the upcoming National Football League draft if he leaves school early, broke the Ohio State single-season sack record previously owned by Vernon Gholston.

Tagovailoa was the runner up to Oklahoma's Kyler Murray in last year's Heisman voting and was the preseason favorite before his injuries and Burrow's emergence made the Tiger the landslide favorite.

Since the Heisman Trophy began inviting finalists to New York City in 1981, Oklahoma is the first school to have a quarterback invited to the ceremony in four straight years, and the first to have different quarterbacks invited in three straight years.

The other finalists for the Heisman Trophy are LSU's Joe Burrow, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and Ohio State defensive end Chase Young.

His completion percentage is on pace to break Baker Mayfield's school record of.709 set in 2016.

Hurts played for three seasons at Alabama, reaching the playoff each year before joining the Sooners and leading them to the final four.

Fields also transferred before this season, after playing his freshman year at Georgia.

Young, meanwhile, is just the fourth defensive lineman to be named a Heisman finalist.

Despite missing multiple games because of a loan controversy involving a family friend, Young still finished the season with an FBS-high 16.5 sacks.

Hurts has completed 72 percent of his passes for 3,634 yards and 32 touchdowns, plus rushed for 1,255 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Fields has accumulated 3,424 yards of offense - 2,953 passing and 471 rushing - on the season while tallying 50 touchdowns with just one interception.

He's third in the nation in passing efficiency and total yards per game.
