While the focus was on Senior Day, Irish star linebacker Manti Te'o admits he thought about Saturday possibly being his last game at Notre Dame Stadium.
Te'o, a junior, could possibly leave Notre Dame for the NFL after the season.
"Of course it crossed my mind," Te'o said after Notre Dame's 16-14 win over Boston College. "But it wasn't that difficult to block out when you look at Jonas, look at Harrison, Darius, Gary, RJ. That's when you know ok. This game is something for them. For me, it was just making sure they went out with a win."
Notre Dame wraps up the regular season next Saturday at Stanford. The Irish are 8-3 and have won seven of their last eight games.
