College Football Season Review and Bowl Game Lineup

The finalists for the Heisman Trophy have been named, and the winner will be announced at 8 pm Saturday. Quarterback Tim Tebow of the Florida Gators, last year’s winner, has been named as one of the three finalists. Sam Bradford, quarterback at Oklahoma, and Texas Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy are the other finalists for this year’s trophy.

Bradford was selected as the Davey O’Brien Award winner this week, while Tebow was named best overall player in college football, winning the Maxwell Award for the second straight year (as voted on by sportswriters, sportscasters, and coaches). Colt McCoy was honored with the Walter Camp Award, honoring the college football player of the year, as decided by Division I-A coaches and sports information directors.
