Saquon Barkley will look to become Penn State's first Heisman finalist since 2005 tonight as the award's narrows the field on Monday night.

The announcement will come at approximately 7 PM according to ESPN and will be aired during Monday Night NFL Countdown. The award itself is presented on December 9th on ESPN.

Barkley is likely to be a finalist, but it's unlikely that anyone but Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will win the award. Despite all of the highlight reel plays, Barkley suffered from lacking production in the back half of the season, no small part the result of defenses committing to stop the run at all costs.

Even so, Barkley's admission to the finalists table and probable Top 5 draft stock is no small consolation.
