Johnny Manziel: Heisman Trophy campaign video

Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel is the favorite to win the 2012 Heisman Trophy over Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is looking to make history on Saturday by becoming the first freshman ever to win the Heisman Trophy.

Manziel has led the Aggies to a 10-2 record this season, including a shocking 29-24 victory on the road against then No. 1 Alabama. "Johnny Football" was magnificent in the win, completing 24-of-31 passes for 253 yards and two scores while adding another 92 yards on the ground.

On the season, Manziel has 3,419 yards passing with 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He has also added 1,181 yards and 19 more touchdowns rushing.

Manziel is currently the favorite to win the trophy, but he is expected to be challenged closely by star Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o. Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein will join Manziel and Te'o at the Heisman ceremony in New York City.

The above video has some of Manziel's greatest hits from this season, with highlights from the Alabama game sprinkled throughout.
