Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel is considered by many to be the favorite to win the 2012 Heisman Trophy. The one chink in Manziel's armor is the regular season loss to the Louisiana State Tigers which may prove fatal to his Heisman hopes.
The Heisman Trophy is given annually to the nation's "outstanding college football player." If Manziel wins it, he will make history as the first freshman ever to win the trophy.
Manziel has had an outstanding freshman season in which he broke multiple school and conference records. He led the Aggies to a surprising 10-2 season.
There are multiple reasons why some of the voters will not choose Manziel, and the LSU loss offers those voters ammunition. This is a look at why the LSU loss may prevent Manzeil from winning the Heisman Trophy.
