Stanford’s Andrew Luck is returning to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist for the second year in a row, but this time he isn’t the favorite to win.

Andrew luck and Robert Griffin III will join fellow finalists Trent Richardson, Tyrann Mathieu and Montee Ball at the Heisman presentation Saturday night in Manhattan. Andrew Luck is the only repeat finalist, while Robert Griffin is the first player from Baylor to ever get invited to the ceremony.

Griffin told reporters in Waco, Texas, “I’m sure it will be a really close vote,” after watching the announcement with fellow teammates and the coaching staff. Trent Richardson is the second Alabama running back to be a finalist in the past three years. His former teammate Mark Ingram won the prestigious award in 2009. Montee Ball has scored 38 touchdowns for Wisconsin this year and only need two more to touchdowns to pass Barry Sanders’ NCAA record. Asked what it would mean to win the Heisman trophy, Luck told ESPN “It would mean a lot. I would mean a great deal for the university. Mean a lot to me and a great deal to the football program, as well.”

Andrew Luck had another amazing season, passing for 3,170 yards with 35 touchdowns while leading the Cardinal to an 11-1 record and a second straight BCS bid. Robert Griffin is hot on his heels though with 3,998 yards and 36 touchdowns. He has also run for 644 yards and nine touchdowns. Griffin also leads the nation in passer rating (192.3).
