3. Ihmir Smith-Marsette won the Holiday Bowl
The junior did a little of everything right to make this bowl game his.
Smith-Marsette led the team with 42 catches for 676 yards and four scores coming into the game, he ran for two scores, and he returned a kickoff for a touchdown.
He missed his one pass attempt against USC, but he ran for a touchdown, caught two passes for 46 yards with a score, and he took back the momentum in the first half after a Trojan score with a kickoff return for a touchdown.
He touched the ball eight times, and scored three touchdowns as the explosion to go along with the steadiness from the rest of the team.
