MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Collin Klein is the Heisman Trophy finalist who fits no mold.

He was lightly recruited out of high school in Colorado and ultimately chose to attend Kansas State, a program that had fallen on hard times. He was turned into a wide receiver, and then went back to being a quarterback, where he sat on the bench and bided his time.

It's finally come the last two years. Klein led the Wildcats to the Cotton Bowl in 2011 before winning the Big 12 title and earning a berth in the Fiesta Bowl this season.

Once the front-runner for the award, Klein will face stiff competition from Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o when the Heisman is given out Saturday night in New York City.
