Te'o, ND No. 4 in Heisman, power rankings

A triple-overtime win over Pitt kept Notre Dame undefeated but hurt the Irish in the eyeball test.

Manti Te'o has fallen from No. 2 to No. 4 in this week's Heisman Watch, and Notre Dame dropped one spot to No. 4 in this week's power rankings.

Collin Klein and Alabama top both lists, though Kenjon Barner and his Oregon team are close No. 2s in both.

Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards both still have the Irish destined for a Fiesta Bowl clash with Kansas State, with Alabama and Oregon in the national title game.

As always, here are my ballots from this past week. (And, again, I don't have an official vote in either poll.)
