His stats have been world class all season. Now he has his signature win in front of the entire country. The stage is set for Johnny Manziel to win the Heisman Trophy in 2012.

The 2012 Heisman race has been characterized by a lack of a clear frontrunner. Johnny Manziel may have just taken that spot. With games left against Sam Houston State and Missouri left on the schedule, Manziel should pad his stats even more with the remainder of the season.
Through ten games, Manziel’s stats are:
- 227 of 336 passing (67.6% completion percentage), 6 INT
- 2,780 passing yards
- 1,014 rushing yards
- 18 passing TD, 15 passing TD
His performance against Alabama was top notch. 24 of 31 passing. Two touchdowns. No interceptions.
A Kansas State loss could potentially knock Collin Klein out of the race. Oregon’s Kenjon Barner is also in the discussion, but could be hurt as he’s one of several weapons on the Oregon offense.
At worst, Johnny Football should have a trip to New York locked up.
