Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o was named the Independent defensive player of the week and the Lott IMPACT player of the week for the second time in a row.
Te'o had two interceptions and eight tackles in Saturday night's 13-6 victory over Michigan as the No. 10 Irish improved to 4-0.
The senior collected both honors last week after he had 12 tackles, two for loss, two pass breakups and recovered a fumble in a 20-3 win over Michigan State.
Te'o has 38 tackles, two for loss, three interceptions and two fumble recoveries this season.
