It will be a day before Winston is expected to win the Heisman – college football's top individual prize.

As for the recordings, they include interviews with Winston's friends, along with a friend of the accuser – the same friend who called 911.

In that call, she tells the operator that her friend didn't know who had raped her or where exactly it happened. She also said her friend didn't remember everything that had happened.

In the call, made on Dec. 7, 2012, the dispatcher asks the friend if the woman was hit. Her friend replies:

"No, she says she like kept blacking out, like she only remembers pieces. She keeps trying to tell me the story but it's very in pieces," she said.

The woman told the dispatcher that it happened off campus at an apartment, and that she met the guy at a local establishment. She also said she didn't know whether or not she left with him willingly.

The state attorney's office says there was not enough evidence to charge Winston. One of Winston's fellow teammates told investigators the sex was consensual.
