Following their dominant performances in BYU's 23-6 win over San Diego State in the 2012 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, linebacker Kyle Van Noy and punter Riley Stephenson were named to the 2012-13 All-Bowl Team.

Here is what had to say about each of their performances . . .

LB Kyle Van Noy
"In what was probably the best defensive performance of the bowl season, Van Noy single-handedly won the Poinsettia Bowl for the Cougars. Van Noy had eight tackles, including five solo, 1.5 sacks, 3.5 tackles for a loss and scored two touchdowns. He recovered a fumble in the end zone and returned an interception 17 yards for a score as BYU beat San Diego State 23-6."

P Riley Stephenson
"There was a big reason why San Diego State had trouble moving the ball down the field in the Poinsettia Bowl, and it can thank the punter. Stephenson had eight punts, including six inside the 20 and three inside the 5-yard line. Stephenson had punts downed at the 5, 16, 1, 2, 9 and 1.
