2019 Heisman Trophy ceremony — How to watch, finalists, favorite, previous winners
The 2019 Heisman Trophy ceremony will be held on Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. ET in New York City, and you can watch it live on ESPN and on the ESPN app.
The finalists for the Heisman Trophy
The finalists are LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and Ohio State defensive end Chase Young. Burrow is the favorite — in the latest edition of ESPN.com’s Heisman Watch, Burrow received all 10 first-place votes from our panel of college football experts.
Fields finished second, and Hurts and Young were tied for third.
In 13 games so far this season, Burrow has thrown 48 touchdown passes — including four in LSU’s 37-10 win over Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship game, setting a new SEC single-season record. The Tigers are currently 13-0 and ranked No. 1 in both the Associated Press Top 25 poll and the College Football Playoff Rankings, ahead of fellow undefeated teams Ohio State and Clemson.
