TEXAS A&M AGGIES

QB Johnny Manziel: The redshirt freshman is a top Heisman candidate. The 6-1, 200-pounder is the first freshman to pass for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season. His 4,600 yards also broke Archie Manning's 43-year-old record for total offense in the SEC.
WR Mike Evans: The 6-5, 218-pound freshman has made a huge impact on Texas A&M's offense, which ranks third in scoring offense (44.8 ppg). Evans has 75 catches for 1,022 yards and five touchdowns for the Aggies.
DE Damontre Moore: Moore (6-4, 250 pounds) is among the nation's leaders for sacks (12.5). The junior also has 20 tackles for loss this season. He is a finalist for the Hendricks Award, which is given to the nation's top defensive end.
