Stanford's Gerhart a Heisman finalist

Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy are headed back to the Heisman Trophy presentation as finalists, along with running backs Mark Ingram and Toby Gerhart and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Tebow is trying to become the second two-time Heisman winner. The Florida quarterback won the award in 2007 and finished third last season.

McCoy was the runner-up last season to Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and has led No. 2 Texas to the BCS national championship game this season.

Ingram has rushed for 1,542 yards and scored 15 touchdowns for No. 1 Alabama.

Stanford's Gerhart, meanwhile, has run for more yards — 1,736 — than any player in the nation.

Nebraska's Suh had 4½ sacks in an attention-grabbing performance against Texas in the Big 12 title game.
