Taysom Hill, a sophomore from Brigham Young University, has been selected as Manning Award Player of the Week. He earns the win over seven other Manning Award Stars of the Week in the Allstate Sugar Bowl's Facebook contest.  This is Hill’s first win.

Hill completed 27-of-41 passes for 339 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He turned in a very impressive performance as he added 69 rushing yards and a touchdown in a 37-20 win over Boise State – the Cougars first-ever win over the Broncos.
