Johnny Manziel wins 2012 Heisman Trophy
Manziel won the award over fellow finalists Notre Dame LB Manti Te'o and Kansas State QB Collin Klein.
A huge reason Manziel won the Heisman was the Aggies' impressive win over then-no. 1 Alabama, in which 'Johnny Football' passed for 253 yards and 2 TD, and also rushed for 92 yards.
Manziel received 474 first place votes, and 2,029 points overall. Te'o finished 2nd with 321 first place votes and 1,706 points, and Klein was a distant 3rd. USC WR Marqise Lee and Ohio State QB Braxton Miller finished 4th and 5th, respectively.
Manziel's freshman year was one for the ages, with 24 passing TD against 8 INT, as well as 1181 rushing yards and 19 rushing touchdowns.
Congrats to Johnny Manziel for a great season and an extremely well-deserved Heisman Trophy.
