Van Noy, who recorded one forced fumble, a fumble recovery, an interception and two touchdowns against SDSU, helped lead BYU to 20 fourth-quarter points to earn a 23-6 win.
Van Noy was a key cog for BYU, which despite a 8-5 record, had one of the stingiest defenses in college football. The Cougars allowed only 14 points a game, third best in the FBS.
Van Noy recently announced that he will return for his senior season.
“I’m in the best shape of my life. Aside from the normal bumps and bruises, I’m feeling as strong and as fast as ever in my career. I’m looking forward to this offseason where I can improve and get even stronger, bigger and faster and finishing things off next year in a way I expect," he said. "A year ago, I didn’t have that chance to prepare myself.”
