Heisman Trophy Ceremony Open Thread

Jeff Zelevansky

Join us as we watch the Heisman Trophy ceremony on ESPN, where Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch has been named a finalist.

Jordan Lynch could be the first Heisman Trophy winner from the Mid-American Conference in its history. You can watch and see how it all unfolds tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ESPN. As you know, Lynch was on USA Today's 2nd Team All-America Offense as quarterback after Jameis Winston. Other finalists include Winston (Florida State), Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M), AJ McCarron (Alabama), Andre Williams (Boston College) and Tre Mason (Auburn).

This year, Lynchwas 233-for-361 through the air (63.1 percent) for 2,676 yards including 23 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. He ran the ball 274 times picking up 1,881 yards (6.9 yards per carry) with 22 touchdowns. He also had a receiving touchdown against Eastern Michigan earlier the year, making him accountable for 46 touchdowns for the 2013 Huskies. If Lynch rushes for at least 119 yards in the Poinsettia Bowl, he would be the first player in FBS history to have at least 2,000 passing and rushing yards in the same season.
