The Heisman Trophy will be awarded this Saturday and we now know who are the final players to be invited to New York for the ceremony. It is going to be a fun night as it is pretty apparent that a running back will win the award this year.
Former Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams just announced the three players that will be in New York on Saturday.

McCaffrey has ran for 1,847 yards and eight touchdowns while catching passes for 540 yards and four touchdowns. He also threw, caught, and ran a touchdown in the PAC-12 Championship Game this past weekend.
Watson led the Tigers to a 13-0 record and the ACC Championship. He did so while throwing for 3,502 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushing for 887 yards and 11 touchdowns.
The ceremony takes place at Playstation Theater in New York on Saturday. It will be televised on ESPN at 8 p.m. EST.
