Te'o wins Lombardi Award:

Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o won the Lombardi Award on Wednesday as college football's best lineman or linebacker. Te'o, also a Heisman Trophy finalist, had 103 tackles and 7 interceptions this year to help the undefeated Fighting Irish reach the BCS championship game against Alabama.

Te'o edged Alabama offensive lineman Barrett Jones, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney for the award presented by the Rotary Club of Houston.

"You look at my highlights and you look at their highlights, I'm a big fan of their highlights," Te'o said.

"When you look at the company I am with -- Jarvis, JC, Barrett -- all guys that have proven themselves many, many times. For me to walk away with it, I am just very, very grateful."

It wasn't until midnight Tuesday that talks wrapped up, and all signs indicated Wednesday's discussions could go as late or later. Very little information leaked out of the meeting room, but it is believed that each side submitted proposals to the other and spent lots of time apart discussing what was offered.

Owners often retreated to their own room one floor above the location of the bargaining session and then took the elevator back down to get talks going again. Some of the together sessions lasted as short as 15 minutes.

-- The Michigan Senate has approved legislation to help finance a downtown project that would include a new home for the Detroit Red Wings.

Purdue hires Hazell:

Darrell Hazell spent most of his coaching career telling others to "be great." Now he'll try to live up to that message at Purdue. Boilermakers athletic director Morgan Burke hired the 48-year-old Kent State coach on Wednesday to lead the school dubbed as the Cradle of Quarterbacks out of mediocrity, back into national prominence and presumably back to a Rose Bowl. …
