San Diego Chargers rookie linebacker Manti Te’o finally spoke to the media after mini-camp on Tuesday. The Notre Dame product had his first press conference and took questions from assembled reporters after not speaking publicly since rookie mini-camp on May 10.

As Jason Whitlock so humorously pointed out, “Indiana University is #1 in basketball, Notre Dame is #1 in football, and the Pacers stink. It’s the 1970s all over again.” For the first time in nearly twenty years, the Fighting Irish are on top of the college football world.

The first weekend of college football is not historically loaded with must-see matchups. This year, however, there are a handful of games that will be worth setting aside time to watch.
