RENO, Nev. – Halfway through the 2019 college football season, Nevada true freshman placekicker Brandon Talton has been named to a second midseason All-America team, this time by ESPN.
Earlier this week Talton was named to The Athletic’s midseason All-America first team and to their freshmen All-America midseason first team. Talton is the only player from a non-Power 5 program to be placed on ESPN’s midseason All-America team.
Talton hit his second game-winning field goal of the season on Saturday, pushing the Wolf Pack to a 41-38 win over San Jose State as time expired from 40 yards out. He made his first game-winning field goal during the season opener against Purdue, hitting a 56-yard attempt as the clock hit zero. That kick earned him a scholarship immediately following the game.
Through six games of the 2019 season Talton has been perfect, making 12-of-12 field goal attempts including three of 40 yards or more. He is one of nine players nationally that have not missed a field goal attempt this season. His 12 field goals made ranks second in the nation among players who have not missed, behind Peyton Henry of Washington who has hit 14-of-14. He has earned Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Week honors on three separate occasions.
Single-game tickets for the two remaining home games are available now with prices as low as $17 per game, with discounts available for children and seniors. Get your tickets today by calling (775) 348-PACK or visiting NevadaWolfPack.com.
