Te'o finalist for Heisman
NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Manti Te'o is officially a Heisman Trophy finalist. ESPN made the announcement late this afternoon.
The other two finalists are Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, and Kansas State QB Collin Klein.
Te'o is trying to become the first defense-only player to win a Heisman. If Manziel is awarded, he'd become the first freshman to win.
The Heisman will be awarded Saturday night.
Early Monday, Manti Te'o picked up the Butkus Award for best linebacker.
