Mayfield returns to NY, where he finished third in the 2016 voting and will likely become the first candidate to win the award after being selected as a finalist the previous season since USC's Reggie Bush in 2005.
A dual-threat quarterback, Jackson led the nation with 411 total yards per game while winning his second consecutive ACC Player of the Year Award.
"I'm honored to be chosen as a finalist with these two outstanding players", Jackson said in a statement.
Louisville's Jackson will attempt to become just the second player to win the Heisman twice.
A program can still have great success with an average quarterback, if they have a running game that is almost unstoppable.
But Jackson has had less time in the national spotlight this fall, with Louisville going 8-4 (4-4 in ACC play) en route to a bid in the TaxSlayer Bowl. "I want to thank all my teammates and coaches for achieving this honor together".
Love leads all Power 5 players with 164.4 yards rushing per game.
Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor, becomes the first victor to earn a trip back to the ceremony since Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel won in 2012 and returned as a finalist in 2013. He was also 2 for 2 passing with a touchdown. Against Nevada three weeks ago, he scored on a rush, a kickoff return and a punt return.
