Jordan Lynch is a Heisman Finalist

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

#LynchFor6 is now a reality. He's headed to New York along with five other finalists.

Jordan Lynch, star senior quarterback for the #23 Northern Illinois Huskies (12-1, 8-1 Mid-American Conference) gets what he deserves: being named a Heisman finalist and going to New York.

2013 stats:

Lynch completed 233 out of his 361 attempted passes this year (63.1 percent) for 2,676 yards with 23 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. On the ground, Lynch ran the ball 274 times picking up 1,881 yards (6.9 yards per carry) with 22 touchdowns. Picking up a receiving touchdown against Eastern Michigan as well, Lynch has accounted for 46 touchdowns this season. His longest pass was for 66 yards and his longest run was for 61 yards. Lynch is 119 yards away from being the first quarterback to have at least 2,000 passing and rushing yards, ever.

In 2012, Lynch broke the FBS record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single season with 1,815 yards. He broke that record this year by totaling 1,881 rushing yards for the season after his 126-yard performance against Bowling Green in Friday's MAC Championship game.

On October 19, Lynch ran for 316 yards against Central Michigan, which would be the single-game record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in FBS history. An addict of breaking his own records, Lynch broke that record five weeks later in the regular season finale against Western Michigan with 321 yards.

Other finalists:

QB- Johnny Manziel (Texas A & M)

QB- AJ McCarron (Alabama)

QB- Jameis Winston (Florida State)

RB- Tre Mason (Auburn)

RB- Andre Williams (Boston College)

The Heisman Trophy ceremony will air live on Saturday at 8 p.m. (ET) on ESPN.
