The winner of the 2012 Heisman Memorial Trophy will be announced Saturday evening, bringing closure to what has been one of the craziest campaigns the most prestigious individual trophy in college football — and arguably in all of sports — has seen in some time.
The only question now is whether there’s one more more surprise in the works in what has been a season full of them.
Of the three finalists, Texas A&M freshman QB Johnny Manziel appears to be the consensus favorite, but only barely over Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o, with Kansas State QB Collin Klein rounding out the field and by now considered little more than an outside shot.
But who knows what might happen when the winner is finally announced Saturday on ESPN? After all, the 2012 college football season will be remembered as one of the most unpredictable in several years, with the race for the Heisman just as up and down as the season itself.
Back in August, USC quarterback Matt Barkley was considered the frontrunn...

Unlike last year, Wisconsin running back Montee Ball isn't among the season-ending Heisman Trophy finalists. But he has now earned a significant piece of hardware that eluded him even during last season's record-breaking campaign.
On Thursday night, Ball won the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's most outstanding running back. He also was named to the Walter Camp...
The latest results of the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll asked the question if college football fans would rather receive gifts this Holiday season as per usual, or if they would forego receiving presents in order to watch their favorite team win the BCS Championship. In a very close vote, 46 percent of fans opted for presents, while 42 percent said they would trade in all of their Holiday...

Last season we saw Montee Ball set all sorts of crazy records and rush for nearly 2,000 yards yet he couldn't win the big awards - the Doak Walker award (Nation's best Running Back) and the Heisman Trophy. Ball surprised a lot of people and returned to the Badgers for what turned out to be one interesting season.
On Thursday night he was rewarded for that decision as...
Another fairly famous Wisconsin Badgers running back won the Doak Walker Award during his senior season and that guy was Ron Dayne in 1999.
Montee Ball throws his name in the argument for best Badgers running back ever by taking home the award for the nation’s top running back on Thursday night.
If just for a moment, Ball’s name being called is a refreshing change from the national...
It's the Thursday before the Heisman ceremony, and you know what that means...it's time for the College Football Awards Ceremony (presented, like every other college athletic event on ESPN, by the Home Depot)! We won't get to see Erin Andrews slutting it up in a painted on dress this year, but I'm sure Samantha Steele will still be rocking something exciting enough...
