SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Here are some numbers to consider as Manti Te'o heads into the Heisman Trophy ceremony this weekend.
His seven interceptions this season are the most ever by a Notre Dame linebacker and the most by any linebacker since 2006. He also has 103 tackles, four pass breakups and recovered two fumbles. He has never scored a touchdown, which would be unusual to say the least for a Heisman winner.
His coaches and teammates say the numbers alone don't define what Te'o has meant to the team. He is the heartbeat of the top-ranked Irish. He will find out Saturday night if he'll be the first Irish player to win since Tim Brown in 1987.
