Saquon Barkley Finishes Fourth In Heisman Voting

Saquon Barkley finished fourth in voting for the 2017 Heisman Trophy, which was awarded to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield at Saturday’s ceremony in New York City.

Only three finalists — Mayfield, Stanford’s Bryce Love, and Louisville’s Lamar Jackson — were named this year; Barkley was just one spot away from the invitation to New York for the ceremony.

Barkley received 304 total points with 15 first place votes, 73 second place votes, and 113 third place votes. For comparison, Jackson received 793 total points, Love received 1,300 total points, and Mayfield received 2,398 total points.

Barkley is the eighteenth Penn State player to finish in the top ten for Heisman voting. Most recently, Michael Robinson came in fifth place during the 2005 season. Barkley’s finish is the highest for a Nittany Lion since Larry Johnson’s 2002 third place finish.

Already this season Barkley has been honored with the Paul Hornung Award for the most versatile player in college football, Graham-George Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Ameche-Dayne Big Ten Running Back of the Year, and Rodgers-Dwight Big Ten Return Specialist of the Year. He also became the 100th first-team All-American in Penn State history.
