Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won the 2012 Heisman Trophy on Saturday.
Manziel, nicknamed "Johnny Football," is the first freshman to win college football's most prestigious award since its inception in 1935.
The other two finalists were Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein.
Manziel ran or passed for 43 touchdowns this year, and his 4,600 combined yards smashed the Southeastern Conference record for total offense.
The Heisman Trophy is voted on by hundreds of media members and past winners.
