Sporting News 2012 All-American Team

LB: Manti Te’o, Sr., Notre Dame
Why is Te’o the defensive superstar of college football? His seven interceptions—four more than any other non-defensive back has—are a big part of the explanation. But Te’o means so much more to the Irish than can be quantified. He’s a Tebow-like leader on the other side of the ball. That good enough?

CB: Jordan Poyer, Sr., Oregon State
There’s zero question who has been the Beavers’ best player throughout their return from the abyss of 2011 to true relevance in 2012. Poyer locks receivers down, plays wickedly hard and has a nose for the football—seven interceptions should make that abundantly clear.
