US PRESSWIRE

Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller will not be traveling to New York City for the 2012 Heisman Trophy ceremony, as he was not among the three finalists chosen for the award. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein are the three up for the prestigious award.

Despite not being voted to New York, Miller enjoyed an excellent season in leading Ohio State to an undefeated season. He threw for 2,039 yards with 15 touchdowns and six interceptions, but he was most dangerous on the ground. Miller ran for 1,271 yards and 13 scores on the season.

The award is expected to come down to Manziel and Te'o. Manziel was brilliant in his freshman season, leading Texas A&M to a 10-2 record while racking up more than 4,000 total yards and 43 touchdowns. T'eo is the leader of a Notre Dame defense that has keyed the Fighting Irish's run to the BCS National Championship Game.
