| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Robert Blanton has been nominated for Intersport's Defensive Performance of the Year following his dominant outing against Michigan State. The Defensive Performance of the Year is part of a four-month competition that allows fans to determine which individual performances reign supreme during the 2011 college football season.

Blanton had six tackles (three for a loss), one sack for an 11-yard loss, three pass breakups, and a fourth-quarter interception followed by an 82-yard return to seal the 31-13 Irish win over No. 15 Michigan State.

The other week-two nominee for Defensive Performance of the Year is Trey Wilson of Vanderbilt. Wilson's two interceptions for 82 yards and one touchdown led Vanderbilt to a 30-7 win over Ole Miss, its largest margin of victory over a SEC foe since 1971.

Notre Dame fans can vote to help advance Blanton to the finals of the competition by visiting the All-Star Football Challenge's Facebook page.
