Manti Te'o ready to take on Stanford

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- There will be some special fans in the stands for Manti Te'o when he and the rest of the Irish spar with the Stanford Cardinals.

Te'o's parents flew in from Hawaii to help cheer Te'o and the Irish onward to victory.

At the game against Michigan, thousands of fans wave leis in support of the linebacker after the deaths of his girlfriend and grandmother.

Te'o says it is an honor to have his relatives here.

And having his family in the stands will be an incentive for him to play well.
