2012 Heisman Trophy watch: Braxton Miller slated for a top-4 finish

Jamie Sabau

Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel looks to be the favorite on Saturday.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller produced one of the best seasons in college football this year, but it doesn't look like it was good enough to earn the Heisman Trophy.

With conference championship games in the books and the Heisman announcement set for Saturday night, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel looks to be the clear favorite.

If Manziel wins, he will be the first freshman in NCAA history to win the Heisman. He's had a spectacular season, throwing for 3,419 yards and 24 touchdowns. He was just as dangerous on the ground, rushing for 1,181 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Manziel is the favorite at most places, including the Heisman Pundit associated with CBS Sports.

Miller looks to be a top-four finisher in the Heisman race. The sophomore threw for 2,039 yards, 15 touchdowns and was picked off six times. He was dangerous on the ground, too, rushing for 1,271 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Miller was picked to finish fourth by ESPN.
