Katie Couric just scored a touchdown.

Manti Te'o and his parents Brian and Ottilia will speak with Couric on her syndicated talk show Thursday in what will be the star athlete's first on-camera interview since the bizarre saga revolving around he and a non-existent dead girlfriend grabbed a stranglehold on the public's attention span.

Couric announced on her Twitter page Sunday: "I will be doing the first on-camera interview with Manti Te'o & his parents - this Thursday on @KatieShow."

As previously reported, Te'o's purported late girlfriend ‘Lennay Kekua’ didn't actually exist, a hoax the All American defender says he had nothing to do with.

On Friday, the Notre Dame linebacker gave his first interview to ESPN, and denied any wrongdoing in the situation. He told the network's Jeremy Schaap, “I wasn’t faking the relationship … I wasn’t part of this.”
