      Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won the Heisman Trophy tonight in New York City, becoming the first freshman to ever win the prestigious award.

      Manziel earned 474 first-place votes, giving him 2,029 total points. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished second in the voting with 321 first-place votes, while Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein placed third with 60.

      Manziel set a new single-season record for total offense in the SEC, surpassing Auburn's 2010 Heisman winner, Cam Newton, who totaled 4,327 yards in his only season in college football.

      He is the only quarterback to have beaten the then top-ranked, now second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide this season, and he took the defending BCS Champs down on the road inside a raucous Bryant-Denny Stadium.

      Manziel is the second youngest winner in Heisman history at the ripe age of 20 and two days. Alabama's Mark Ingram remains the youngest winner, but only by 11 days. Ingram was 19 when his won in 2009.
