After a season filled with speculation, predictions and and all kinds of big plays, the race for the Heisman Trophy has been narrowed down to three finalists.

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

The last time the Heisman did not feature a running back as a finalist was in 2008, when Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford and Colt McCoy all made the trip to New York.

With bowl matchups being announced over the weekend, it's time to start breaking down what these guys will face in their postseason games this year.

For Te'o and Klein, this will be their last games, their last chances to leave lasting impressions on the college football universe.

For Manziel, it will be his first postseason rodeo, with an opportunity to add an exclamation point to one of the greatest seasons a freshman quarterback has ever had.

Before the games, though, all three of them will make the trip to New York for the presentation of the Heisman.

Read on for a preview of each of the finalists bowl games.
