Notre Dame is currently the No. 1 team in the nation. While Johnny Manziel helped Texas A&M beat then-No. 1 Alabama, Manziel and the Aggies lost two games.
The Texas A&M Aggies lost the first game of the season at home against Florida and lost again at home versus LSU. Notre Dame is a perfect 12-0.
Johnny Manziel has incredible stats as he set the single-season record for most offensive production in the powerful Southeastern Conference with over 4,600 yards. Manziel has passed for 3,419 yards with 24 passing touchdowns and has rushed for 1,181 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Manti Te'o led Notre Dame in tackles with 103. His seven interceptions tie him for second in country, a ridiculous number for a linebacker. The biggest stat is that Te'o helped the Irish finish No. 1 in scoring defense, allowing only 10.3 points a game.
If it comes down to numbers only, Manziel wins. Te'o has the advantage as the best player on the best football team.
