OSU football: Chuba Hubbard not among Heisman Trophy finalists

STILLWATER — Chuba Hubbard’s bucket-list trip to New York City will have to wait.

The nation’s leading rusher was not among the four finalists for the Heisman Trophy announced Monday night.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts and the Ohio State duo of quarterback Justin Fields and defensive end Chase Young made the list.

Hubbard, a redshirt sophomore, leads the nation in rushing yards (1,936) and all-purpose yards (2,161).

Hubbard offered his thanks to OSU fans and those who voted for him in the Heisman race via Twitter shortly after the finalists were announced.

He was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, as well as a finalist for the Doak Walker Award and Walter Camp Player of the Year award.

Hubbard is eligible to enter next spring’s NFL Draft, but has not made his decision public.

“I haven’t talked to him about it, but I would expect him to play in this game,” Gundy said of OSU’s Dec. 27 Texas Bowl matchup against Texas A&M. “I expect Chuba to be playing next year, too.”
