Ray Vinopal – University of Pittsburgh
Junior, Safety, Youngstown, Ohio
Vinopal played a vital role in Pitt’s 28-21 victory over Notre Dame by having a direct hand in all three Irish turnovers. Vinopal’s initial big play came in the second quarter when he stripped receiver TJ Jones of the ball at the Pitt 6, and it was recovered by cornerback Lafayette Pitts. In the decisive final period with the score tied, 21-21, Vinopal halted an Irish drive by intercepting quarterback Tommy Rees in the end zone with 14:04 remaining. Less than four minutes later, he picked off Rees again, returning it 40 yards to the Irish 5 to set up Pitt’s winning touchdown. Vinopal added seven tackles and assisted on a tackle for lost yardage.
