No matter who wins, Heisman history will be made on Saturday.

If Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel takes home the trophy then he'll be the first freshman to do so. After leading the Aggies to a 10-2 season and accounting for 43 total touchdowns, the oddsmakers see Manziel as a slight favorite on the eve of the ceremony in New York.

But Johnny Football isn't favored by much. He's also not the only finalist with a chance to make history. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o could become the first purely defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy. Te'o finished with seven interceptions while leading Fighting Irish and its No. 1 ranked defense to an undefeated season.

Despite topping many Heisman polls during the season, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein's current chances of winning the Heisman Trophy are slim, according to the oddsmakers. If he can pull off the upset then he would be the first player ever out of K-State to win.

Who do you think will take home the Heisman Trophy? Do the oddsmakers have it right?
