Notre Dame's 4-0 start and No. 10 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 has put it in a place it hasn't been for six years – the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Irish linebacker Manti Te'o is the regional cover boy for this week's addition. The issue with Te'o on the cover will be circulated in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, eastern Missouri, most of Ohio and parts of Canada.
Te'o's cover marks the first time Notre Dame has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated since the magazine's 2006 college football preview issue.
