Alabama v Texas A&M

NEW YORK (AP) - Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron are finalists for the Maxwell Award, given to college football’s player of the year.

Manziel won the O’Brien last season, along with the Heisman Trophy.
