Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o were selected as the finalists for the 2012 Heisman Trophy. On Monday, ESPN announced the final invitations for the three players to attend the presentation ceremony in New York.  Each player has the potential to take home the trophy, setting the stage for possibly the closest race since Nebraska quarterback Eric Crouch won it in 2001.
