Jarrett and Darby both received Honorable Mention Defensive Lineman and Defensive Back nods, respectively. Jarrett collected a pair of sacks and forced a fumble to finish with thee tackles-for-loss, and made four total tackles. Darby recorded a pair of interceptions, including the first of his career, in the fourth quarter to seal the win for the Sun Devils. He also added five tackles. Jarrett and Darby were responsible for three of the Sun Devils' season-high five forced turnovers.

The purpose of the College Football Performance Awards is to provide the most scientifically rigorous distinction in college football. Recipients are selected based exclusively on objective scientific rankings and place emphasis on the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams. The CFPA is also the sole group to honor national freshman performer of the year, kickoff returner, punt returner and kickoff specialist.
