2012 Heisman Trophy announcement show time, TV schedule

USA TODAY Sports

Update: Johnny Manziel has won the 2012 Heisman Trophy.

By now, you know the names and the story lines -- the defensive player, the freshman and the senior quarterback — of the three Heisman Trophy finalists.


The projected 2012 Heisman Trophy winner

Notre Dame Fighting Irish linebacker Manti Te'o, Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel and Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein will be on hand as one of the three is named the recipient of the 2012 Heisman in New York City, joining an exclusive club. Manziel, for what it's worth, is by far the favorite.

And with bowl season still well into the distance, the Heisman Trophy presentation on Saturday night will have the full attention of the college football nation. But before the trophy is handed out, media members and former Heisman recipients must vote their top three candidates for the trophy. Eight regions each have 145 first-through-third place votes each, and 57 Heisman winners vote with no affiliation to region.

Date and Time: Saturday, Dec. 8, 8 p.m. ET

Location: Best Buy Theater in Times Square, New York, N.Y.

TV: ESPN
