Manti Te'o and his Notre Dame team find themselves in similar positions this week, as each is No. 4 in ESPN.com's Heisman Watch and power rankings, respectively. Te'o jumped two spots while the Irish moved up from No. 7. They are No. 5 in the initial BCS rankings. Geno Smith remains the Heisman frontrunner, with Braxton Miller and Collin Klein right behind him. The Irish could face Klein if Mark Schlabach's and Brad Edwards' bowl projections prove correct, as both again have Notre Dame slated for the Fiesta Bowl, this time against Kansas State. As always, here are Heisman and power rankings. (For the record, I don't have a vote in either official poll.)
