The finalists for college football's top award were named Monday evening. They are Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, Auburn running back Tre Mason, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and Boston College running back Andre Williams.
Winston is the prohibitive favorite to win the award.
