NEW YORK >> Florida State's Jameis Winston, Northern Illinois' Jordan Lynch, Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, Alabama's AJ McCarron, Auburn's Tre Mason and Boston College's Andre Williams are the finalists for the Heisman Trophy.

Six finalists invited to Saturday's ceremony in New York are the most since 1994.

Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win the award Saturday night in New York now that a sexual assault complaint against him in Tallahassee, Fla., has been closed without charges being filed. He could also become the second freshman to win the award.

Manziel was the first last year. The Aggies quarterback is trying to join another exclusive Heisman club by becoming the second player to win the award twice. Ohio State's Archie Griffin won the award in 1974 and '75.

Agreed. It's ridiculous he's even invited to New York.

Read where Manziel celebrated 21st B.D. in Vegas during off week. Still exhibits questionable off-field activity and decisions.
