Preview: Irish-Tide showdown is the finest against the finest

(Continued)

MIAMI —

While Te’o has made such a significant jump in pass coverage, he hasn’t relented on stopping the run, collecting a team high 103 tackles, five for a loss and recovering two fumbles. The senior captain also spearheaded goal-line stands against Stanford and USC that helped propel the Irish to this point.

As usual, he says he looks forward to going up against the nation’s best in Yancy and Yeldon.

“It’s football at its finest,” Te’o said, “This is an opportunity we’ve been waiting for for a long time.”
