The Oregon Ducks paid for a Bo Nix billboard in New York City for months. The billboard promoted a Heisman Trophy campaign.

After Monday, the billboard did not go to waste. Nix will be amongst the Heisman Trophy finalists in the Big Apple on Saturday.

Nix will meet with the media at the New York Marriott Marquis. Then, he will lead Lincoln Center for the Award ceremony.

The winner will be announced following the 8 pm TV presentation.

Nix is one of four finalists for the award. Three of the four are quarterbacks, who eventually transferred to their current school.

Also invited are Washington Huskies quarterback Michael Penix Jr., LSU Tigers quarterback Jayden Daniels, and Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr.

He is the first Oregon Heisman finalist since 2014. That’s when former Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota won the prestigious award.

The signal caller, who began his college career at Auburn, has gone 336 of 435 for 4,145 yards. He has thrown 40 touchdowns and three interceptions.

His best performance came in November over the Southern California (USC) Trojans. He went 23 of 31 for 412 yards. Nix also had four touchdown passes in the game.

His worst game came in his most-recent game. He went 21 of 34 for 239 yards in a loss to Penix Jr.’s Washington team in the Pac-12 Championship game on Las Vegas.

He also had three touchdown passes and one interception.
