One of the most wide-open Heisman races in recent memory has entered the final stage, with the finalists for this year's Heisman Trophy being named on Monday evening.
The following players will be in attendance for the presentation of the award in New York City, in alphabetical order:
Montee Ball, Wisconsin
Robert Griffin III, Baylor
Andrew Luck, Stanford
Tyrann Mathieu, LSU
Trent Richardson, Alabama
The iconic stiff-arm trophy will be presented to "the most outstanding player in collegiate football" on Saturday evening in the official ceremony hosted by the Heisman Trophy Trust. The last time five players were finalists for the Heisman Trophy was 2009 when Mark Ingram, Toby Gerhart, Colt McCoy, Tim Tebow, and Ndamukong Suh all made the trip to New York.
