Vegas may have Johnny Manziel as the odds on favorite to win the Heisman, but the guy that has captured the hearts and minds of the American public this season remains to be Manti Te'o.
I can't remember the last time a player has overcome the types of obstacles that Te'o has this season (including the death of his girlfriend and grandmother in a 24 hour period), while still having a level of production and consistency that rivals some of elite defensive players of recent college football memory.
Off the field, Manti epitimizes everything that the Heisman stands for. Voters won't have an easy decision.
Take a look at Notre Dame's newest Heisman promotion for Te'o. Take notice of the clever hashtag.
