Manti Te'o emotional after win against Michigan State

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Star player Manti Te'o had a very emotional week away from the football field.

His girlfriend and grandmother both died in separate non-related incidents about 24 hours apart last week.
 
Despite the tragedy, Te'o decided to still play.
 
"I could call my girlfriend and talk about the game but now I just gotta get on my knees, say a prayer and talk to her that way," he said after the game.

Te'o had a great game against the Spartans Saturday night with 12 tackles and a fumble recovery.
