Utah State’s Nick Vigil Added to Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll Following Upset of BYU

Louisville, KY – Wednesday, October 8, 2014 – Utah State linebacker Nick Vigil was added to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll in week six for his stellar, two-way performance in the Aggie’s 35-20 upset victory over BYU Friday night in Provo. The 6-3, 230 lb. Vigil, a season-long starter at linebacker, saw his first duty at running back and was the Aggie’s leading rusher with 16 carries for 57 yards and a TD. In one sequence, he carried the ball on three consecutive plays from the 17-yard line to the six, picking up a first down and setting up a TD. Vigil scored what proved to be the game-winning TD on a one-yard plunge in the third quarter. He logged an astounding 108 snaps while playing both ways in all four quarters and led Utah’s defense with nine tackles.
