Sun Devils Nolan is a high-scoring defender
Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller
Arizona State safety Troy Nolan has scored three touchdowns this year, two by interception return and one on a fumble recovery. His latest score was a 100-yard interception return against UCLA last Friday that transformed the complexion of that contest.
So how does a safety with three TDs stack up?
But Nolan isn't only measuring up on his offensively challenged team.
Nolan has one more touchdown than USC's touted running back Joe McKnight.
Nolan would be tied for second at UCLA with tight end Ryan Moya.
Oregon receiver Jaison Williams also has three touchdowns.
He'd also be tied for first at Washington State with running backs Logwone Mitz and Dwight Tardy and quarterback Kevin Lopina. Receive Brandon Gibson was first-team All-Pac-10 last year, but he has fewer touchdowns (2) than Nolan.
