ESPN has teamed up with EA Sports to bring you the #UltimateTeam vote. We’ve selected the top 5 offensive and defensive players for 16 of the elite programs in college football history. Which is the Ultimate Team? Round 1 of the voting begins today.

Notre Dame checks in as the No. 14 seed, looking to pull off the upset against No. 3 Ohio State. It's not looking bright early on, as the Buckeyes currently hold a commanding 75 percent of the votes, but you folks can help change that.

Here are the rosters for each school.

NOTRE DAME
Captain: Tim Brown
QB: Brady Quinn
RB: Jerome Bettis
RB: Ricky Watters
WR: Raghib Ismail
WR: Jeff Samardzija

Manti Te'o can call himself a unanimous All-American.

The senior linebacker made the Football Writers Association of America All-America team, and he has now made all five All-America teams that the NCAA recognizes to determine unanimous distinction, including: the American Football Coaches Association, Sporting News, Walter Camp and Associated Press.

Te'o was also named an ESPN.com All-American last week.

Te'o is the 33rd unanimous All-American in Irish history. Receivers Golden Tate (2009) and Jeff Samardzija (2005) were the most recent Notre Dame players to earn unanimous All-America status, and cornerback Shane Walton (2002) was the most recent defensive Irish player to do it.

Te'o was also recently named to a first-team All-American by Phil Steele, along with tight end Tyler Eifert. Stephon Tuitt earned second-team status, while Braxston Cave and Louis Nix earned third and Zack Martin notched fourth.
