It’s Johnny Football’s trophy to lose. The three finalists for the 2012 Heisman Trohpy were announced today, and they include Kansas State QB Collin Klein, Notre Dame LB Manti Te’o, and prohibitive favorite Johnny Manziel, the phenomenal freshman quarterback for Texas A & M. Klein finished the regular season with 2,490 passing yards, 15 TDs, 7 INTs, and a passer rating of 156.1 while leading K-State to an 11-1 record and a trip to the Fiesta Bowl. Te’o was instrumental in the Irish’s undefeated season and berth in the BCS Championship game against Alabama.  The stellar linebacker racked up 101 tackles, two sacks and an impressive 7 INTs in his senior year. Manziel led the Aggies to a 10-2 record and a spot in the Cotton Bowl by throwing for 3,419 yards, 24 TDs, 8 INTs, and a passer rating of 155.9 while setting numerous NCAA and SEC freshman records. The 2012 Heisman Trophy presentation takes place December 8 at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York City.
