ARLINGTON, TEXAS (December 31, 2012)—The AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic’s rich lineage of Heisman Trophy

winners participating in the historic postseason game will continue with the addition of the most recent recipient,

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who will lead the ninth-ranked Aggies against No. 11 Oklahoma on January

4th at Cowboys Stadium.

A couple of past winners, John David Crow and Billy Sims, will team up with the newest member of the exclusive

fraternity to further enhance the Heisman experience for fans on game day.

Prior to kickoff of the 77 th annual bowl game, Crow, who became Texas A&M’s first Heisman Trophy winner in

1957, and Oklahoma’s Sims, the 1978 recipient, will be on hand to sign autographs and meet fans during their

appearances at the LG/AT&T Huddle Up. The Heisman legends will appear from 4:00-5:00 p.m. at the game-day fan

fest located on the plazas at Cowboys Stadium.

Crow, an Aggie halfback who became legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant’s first and only Heisman winner, will greet

Texas A&M fans at the LG Trophy Tent located on the East Plaza of the stadium. Sooner fans can meet Sims, one of

Oklahoma’s five Heisman Trophy recipients, in the LG Trophy Tent on the West Plaza. The doors to both plazas will

open at 3:00 p.m. on game day.

Fans also will have the opportunity to get their picture taken with the Heisman Memorial Trophy, which will be on

prominent display at the LG/AT&T Huddle Up. During the game-day fan fest sponsored by LG and AT&T, Sooners and

Aggies alike also can win prizes by participating in fun, interactive football challenges; enjoy live concerts performed

by local bands; and cheer on their favorite team during school band and spirit group performances.

And when Manziel takes the field for Texas A&M during the 77th annual AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, which kicks off

at 7:00 p.m. at Cowboys Stadium, he will join seven other Heisman Trophy winners who have taken part in the game’s

storied history.
