The official voting window for the 2017 Heisman Trophy victor closes today, and the victor will be announced Saturday night amid much pomp and circumstance in NY.

Alongside Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Stanford running back Bryce Love, Jackson will be in New York City for the ceremony at 8 p.m Saturday.

Only one player in NCAA history has won multiple Heisman Trophies: Ohio State running back Archie Griffin in 1974 and 1975.

Barkley has 1,728 yards from scrimmage, 47 receptions, 21 total touchdowns and is second nationally in all-purpose yards per game at 179.5. Among 20 electors who work for Gannett properties, Mayfield was named first on 18 ballots and second on the other two. While his rushing numbers began to dip against defenses looking to stop the run, he still maintained a lead thanks to his versatility, returning two kickoffs for touchdowns while being a major threat as a receiver. He's a Heisman finalist for the second year in a row after leading the Sooners to a Big 12 title and berth in the College Football Playoff (Rose Bowl vs. Georgia).

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield has a new phone number.

If it holds, Mayfield's efficiency rating of 203.8 would shatter the record he set a year ago of 196.39. Love rushed for 100 yards in 11 of the 12 games he played, including performances of 263 yards against UCLA and 301 yards against Arizona State in back-to-back weeks.

Jackson won the 2016 Heisman Trophy and vies to be the second two-time victor.
