LSU has not had a Heisman winner since running back Billy Cannon in 1959. They will have another come Saturday when quarterback Joe Burrow picks up the award in New York.

This year's Heisman ceremony will offer little suspense.

The finalists were announced Monday, and Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and Ohio State defensive end Chase Young at least get a trip to New York out of it.

Oklahoma quarterbacks have won the past two Heismans, with Kyler Murray following Baker Mayfield. Both went on to become the No. 1 overall choice in the NFL Draft.

Burrow could do the same this spring.

A year ago, Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield looked on track to become the NFL's next truly big thing. Advertisers wagered on it happening, lining Mayfield up for a slew of national commercials for the football season in which he was supposed to become a superstar. Instead, Mayfield regressed - and the first overall pick in 2018 saw (along with the rest of us) the last pick of round one from that same draft become the odds-on MVP.
