We told you before the Poinsettia Bowl that Kyle Van Noy would likely be the player to watch in BYU vs. San Diego State. Yep.
BYU's Kyle Van Noy now has a blocked punt, a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a touchdown, along with a passel of tackles. It's fine that he got a whole lot of those on the same play. After his block gave the flailing Cougars offense a very good chance at points, he decided to take matters into his own hands. "Matters" being San Diego State quarterback Adam Dingwell's rarely used nickname.
The arm's moving forward, and there's an argument to be made that this wasn't a fumble, but officials reviewed it and declared the on-field ruling correct. Whatever, just let us have our points.
BYU's defense followed that up with a forced fumble, and it's now suddenly 16-6, Cougars, thanks in immense part to this D.
