Lessons from Notre Dame's 37-30 overtime win over Washington:
Te'o has arrived: Freshman linebacker Manti Te'o made his first career start and finished with 10 tackles. He wasn't flawless, but he was active and made his presence felt. For a Notre Dame defense that's still struggling to wrap up ball carriers (at least until they get to the goal line) more Te'o can only be a good thing.

No wounder Pete Carrol was so upset when he pick the Irish over SC.
