2012 Heisman Ballot: Collin Klein, Johnny Manziel, Manti Te'o

| by

Below is our Bloguin Heisman ballot for this week; do you agree with our top three and the order?

1. Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State. He is the definition of an MVP for his team and has Kstate doing quite well. No he does not have ESPN behind him like others but looking at his stat line he deserves the nod.

2. Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. His 439 total yards and five touchdowns (two rushing) in Saturday’s win against the Mizzou Tigers makes his chances even stronger. But he is a freshman....

3. Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame. Simply put....this senior linebacker has 103 tackles and is second in the country in INTs—and has three more of them than any other non-DB in the country. Does defense win championships and Heisman's?
