Te'o up to No. 2 in Heisman Watch

A pre-draft trip to New York is looking more and more likely for Manti Te'o, and the chances would improve even more with a Notre Dame victory Saturday at Oklahoma.

Te'o is No. 2 on ESPN.com's Heisman Watch this week, trailing only Kansas State's Collin Klein. He jumped two spots this week, while the Irish held steady at No. 5 in this week's power rankings.

Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards both predict Notre Dame to reach the Fiesta Bowl, with Schlabach pegging a rematch of this weekend's game contest with the Sooners and Edwards seeing a matchup between the Nos. 1 and 2 on this week's Heisman Watch, with the Irish facing Kansas State.

As always, my rankings:
