Texas A&M Aggies: Heisman finalists 2012
December, 3, 2012
By Edward Aschoff | ESPN.com
In a real shocker, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been named one of the three finalists for this year's Heisman Trophy.
Johnny Football is joined by Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein.
Manziel, a redshirt freshman, appears to be the front-runner after a fantastic first year of college football. He threw for 3,419 yards with 24 touchdowns to eight interceptions. He also finished the year second in the SEC with 1,181 rushing yards and led the conference with 19 rushing touchdowns.
Manziel really threw himself into the Heisman discussion nationally when he helped lead Texas A&M to a 29-24 upset win over No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa. He also guided the Aggies to a 10-2 season in their first year in the SEC and will man A&M against Oklahoma in the AT&T Cotton Bowl on Jan. 4.
Manziel's 4,600 total yards of offense set an SEC record.
