One last chance …

Manti Te'o, LB: Here we are, one week left. A national title spot on the line. Primetime at the archrival, the school everyone though Te'o was destined for. Imagine a game-changing, title-game clinching turnover forced by Te'o. Is that enough to make him the first defense-only Heisman? A trip to New York seems all but assured, and a lot will likely depend on how Johnny Football performs, too. Te'o's has 98 tackles this season, including 5.5 for loss, to go with six picks, 1.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and four quarterback hurries, two of which led to interceptions. His eight forced turnovers are second in the nation, and he is about to become the second Irish player ever to notch three straight 100-tackle seasons.
