The three finalists will be revealed on Nov. 23 following a fan vote and a vote from the award's National Selection Committee.
Stroud has already been named one of 15 semifinalists for this year's Maxwell Award, given annually to the top overall player in college football and has the third-best odds to win the Heisman Trophy, behind only Alabama's Bryce Young and Michigan State's Kenneth Walker III.
