Online petition wants to immortalize 'flag plant' as Mayfield's Heisman Park statue

Online petition wants to immortalize 'flag plant' as Mayfield's Heisman Park statue

In reality, Suh was the most dominant player in college football that year for Nebraska, but the nature of playing along the defensive line made him a long shot to win.

Not making that cut was a couple of talented running backs.

Mayfield and Jackson are finalists for the second straight year, and Jackson is trying to become the second player to win two Heismans, joining former Ohio State star Archie Griffin.

The only Heisman victor to repeat is Archie Griffin of Ohio State (1974, 1975). Sims placed second behind USC running back Charles White in 1979.

Everton boss Allardyce to miss Europa League game at Apollon
Allardyce underwent heart surgery back in December 2009 to fix a narrow coronary artery during his time in charge of then-Premier League side Blackburn Rovers.

SI on Washington: Washington led the nation's receivers with 1,423 yards and was able to walk in several of his 12 touchdowns after he and Cowboys QB Mason Rudolph blew the top off opposing secondaries. This year, Mayfield's eye-popping stats have taken him to NY as the favorite. For the second consecutive season he threw for over 3,000 yards and added another 1,000 yards on the ground.

Injuries limited Love down the stretch and even forced him to sit out Stanford's game against Oregon State in October. Love finished second in the nation in rushing with 1,973 yards and scored 17 touchdowns.

Mayfield is trying to become the sixth Heisman victor from Oklahoma and third Sooners quarterback (Jason White and Sam Bradford) to win since 2003. He did most of his work while gutting out a severely injured ankle, and had ten 100-yards games while averaging a remarkable 8.32 yards a carry. Jackson, the reigning Heisman Trophy victor, is back as a finalist after putting together another impressive campaign that includes 3,489 passing yards, 1,443 rushing yards, 25 touchdown passes and 17 rushing scores.

While Jackson became the youngest Heisman Trophy victor last year, in 2000, 28-year-old Florida State quarterback Chris Weinke became the oldest Heisman Trophy recipient. According to, only Miami, Oklahoma, Florida and Alabama have sent more finalists to NY.
