Klein passed for 2,490 yards with 15 touchdowns, and a quarterback rating of 156.1 in 2012 and will be up against Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o.

“I really don’t know what to expect, we’re just going to take it one step at a time and go where they tell me to go and go from there,” said Klein on Thursday when asked what he expects his Heisman experience to be like.

Klein credited his successful season to his 73-year-old youthful coach Bill Synder.

“He models it for us,” Klein said of Synder’s influence on and off the field with players all season long.  “No one works harder than coach does and no one cares more than coach does.  When you put those two things together, it’s really special.”
