He finished the year 2-for-2 for 46 yards and ran the ball three times for 31 net yards.

Nichols, a junior punter, earned the second-team nod after leading the conference in punting, averaging 37.7 yards on a CC-high 74 punts. He had six punts of 50 yards or longer, including a long of 63 yards. Nichols forced 17 fair catches and dropped 16 punts inside the 20.
