NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - So which of the three finalists for the Heisman Trophy really has been college football's best player this season? Check back with the Oklahoma Sooners after the Cotton Bowl and they could offer an educated opinion.

No. 12 Oklahoma (10-2) will complete a Heisman trifecta of sorts when the Sooners face No. 10 Texas A&M (10-2) in the Jan. 4 game in Arlington, Texas. The Aggies are led by quarterback Johnny Manziel, who this month became the first freshman to win the Heisman and on Tuesday was named as the AP Player of the Year.

Oklahoma already has faced the other two players who finished in the top three in this season's Heisman balloting: Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein.
