Andrew Luck among Heisman Trophy finalists

Newton and James have been announced as finalists for the Heisman Trophy and will be joined by Stanford's Andrew Luck and Kellen Moore of Boise State for Saturday's announcement.

Newton overcame a pay-to-play scandal with a superb season on the field, piling up nearly 4,000 combined yards and 48 touchdowns in leading the top-ranked Tigers into the Jan. 10 national championship game.

The dynamic James had more yards and touchdowns than anyone else in FBS, helping the second-ranked Ducks into their first national championship game.
