By the numbers: What a Heisman win would mean for Te'o

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
If Manti Te'o were to win the Heisman, he would be:

-- The first strictly defensive player (and second primarily defensive player) to win.

-- The first player to win seven national individual trophies (he's already the first with six).

-- The 15th player to win after an unbeaten, untied regular-season season.

-- The eighth player to win after a 12-0 (or better) season.

-- The 23rd winner from a team from the Midwest, more than any other region (Southwest is next with 16).

-- The third winner to wear No. 5 (Notre Dame's Paul Hornung and USC's Reggie Bush -- now stricken from the record books -- were the others).

-- The eighth Notre Dame player to win, breaking a tie with Ohio State and USC for the most ever.
