Erick DarganSafety | Oregon
Dargan, a third-string safety who moved into the starting lineup late in the season, helped the Ducks slow down Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein in a 35-17 victory in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Dargan, a sophomore from Pittsburg, Calif., had eight tackles and intercepted two passes. He picked off Klein's Hail Mary attempt at the end of the first half and then intercepted a pass down the sideline late in the second half. The Ducks held Klein to only 151 passing yards and 30 rushing, well below his regular-season averages.
