Heisman Trophy 2012 announcement show time, TV schedule

When, where, and how to watch the presentation of the 2012 Heisman Trophy.

USA TODAY Sports

College football's biggest individual achievement, the Heisman Trophy, will be awarded Saturday (8 p.m. ET on ESPN) to one of three finalists - Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel, Notre Dame Fighting Irish linebacker Manti Te'o and Kansas St. Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein - at the Best Buy Theather in Times Square.

Klein was a frontrunner for much of the season, but a November injury combined with some average performances after his return have him being considered an underdog at this point. Te'o is a rare defensive player that is a finalist. He led the Fighting Irish defense in an undefeated campaign that will see them playing for the national title.

Manziel is probably the favorite at this point; if he wins, he'd be the first freshman ever to do so. Manziel had an impressive year throwing the football while rushing for over 1,000 yards in Texas A&M's first season in the SEC. He also had a big highlight win, as A&M handed defending national champion (and then No. 1) Alabama their only loss of the season.
