Manti Te’o returned to Notre Dame nearly 10 years after his catfishing scandal, and he’s getting a ton of love from Fighting Irish fans.
On Saturday before Notre Dame’s game against Cal, Te’o returned to South Bend to give a pre-game speech.

Former Irish LB Manti Te’o gave a speech at today’s The Victory March:
“It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when everything is going right.
But who’s gonna jump off that wagon when it ain’t rolling right and start pushing with me?

Before the start of the game, an emotional Te’o was put on the jumbotron and got a standing ovation by Notre Dame fans.

Awesome to see Te’o get love from Notre Dame fans years after he dealt with the embarrassing catfishing scandal.
