Kyle Van Noy
Linebacker | BYU
Van Noy turned in perhaps the most dominant individual performance of the postseason in the Cougars' 23-6 victory over San Diego State in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. With the Cougars trailing the Aztecs 6-3 in the fourth quarter, Van Noy took matters into his own hands when he sacked and stripped quarterback Adam Dingwell in the end zone, recovering the fumble for a touchdown. Later in the fourth quarter, Van Noy intercepted a Dingwell pass and returned it 17 yards for a touchdown. He tied an FBS record for defensive scores in a game.
