The Associated Press and Sports Illustrated released their All-American teams. And as you’d expect from the No. 1 team in the land, Notre Dame is well represented.

Manti Te’o, fresh off a week of travels that covered 8,500 miles in just over seven days as the senior linebacker earned seven major awards, leads the way as a first-team All-American by every measure of the term.

But let’s go through the various teams and look at the Irish members honored for an incredible season.
