The likely Heisman victor tweeted Sunday night that Georgia fans had flooded his phone with messages of, we assume, positivity and joy after it was announced Oklahoma would play the Bulldogs in the College Football Playoff semifinals.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, Stanford running back Bryce Love and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson were named Heisman Trophy finalists.

For the second straight year, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson will be a Heisman Trophy finalist.

Baker Mayfield is the Heisman favorite after putting together an outstanding season for Oklahoma, but the other finalists have a shot for the top individual honor in the sport as well. Mayfield threw four touchdown passes during Oklahoma's victory.
