He also tallied 29.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks and eight interceptions for the Trojans.

Nixon, 6-3, 225, from Arizona State started his collegiate career late after spending four years (2002-05) as a catcher in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ minor-league system. He enrolled at Arizona State in 2006 and went on to become a two-time honorable mention All-Pac-10 choice who finished his career with 253 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks and eight interceptions. Nixon also excelled in the classroom, earning numerous academic awards from the Pac 10 and ESPN The Magazine.
