Score another point for Manti Te'o in his battle to prove that he had nothing to do with fooling America into thinking he had a girlfriend.

In an interview with People, Alexandra del Pilar - who dated the Notre Dame linebacker for two months in late 2012 - says Te'o often referenced Lennay Kekua and acted every bit like someone who believed she died of leukemia on September 12.

In a taped interview with Katie Couric, which will air tomorrow on that host's talk show, Manti Te'o admits to at least one time when he lied about the existence of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.

Asked by Couric whether he was in on the hoax, Te'o says no - but he did mislead reporters on two occasions after receiving a call on December 6 from someone claiming to be Kekua, who Te'o thought to have died two months earlier.
