The 2012 Heisman Trophy will be awarded to Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel or Kansas State passer Collin Klein later this evening at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square.
Although being the most outstanding NCAA college football player for a year, previous Heisman winners have not always experienced success in the National Football League (NFL).
