Based on the selection of finalists, Alabama has a 50% chance of adding a third Heisman Trophy winner to its history on Tuesday.

The Heisman Trophy will be awarded Tuesday evening in a virtual ceremony televised by ESPN. Alabama quarterback Mac Jones and wide receiver DeVonta Smith are finalists alongside Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and Florida quarterback Kyle Trask.

The one-hour show starts at 6 p.m. CT on ESPN

The ceremony is typically held in New York, but ESPN’s Chris Fowler will host a virtual ceremony from its Bristol, Connecticut, studios due to COVID-19 precautions.

The four finalists and previous Heisman winners will appear virtually.
