LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville's Lamar Jackson says he's excited to get back to New York for this weekend's Heisman Trophy ceremony.
Jackson along with Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Stanford's Bryce Love, are all finalists for college football's top award.
He says he was in bed when he found out he was a finalist for the second year in a row.
Jackson has high praise for both Mayfield and Love and was surprised to find out there were only three finalists this year.
As last year's winner, Jackson gets a Heisman vote but declined to say who he had voted for.
