(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By LYNN DeBRUIN AP Sports Writer Kyle Van Noy's career at Brigham Young was nearly derailed before it started because of a stupid mistake. Now there's a chance it will end a year early - after his junior season - if the scouts who have been checking out the playmaking linebacker convince him the NFL is a better option than another year in college. That said, Van Noy acknowledges Saturday's game against Idaho could be his finale at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Last year, Van Noy became the only player in the FBS to record a statistic in every major defensive category: tackle, tackle for loss, sack, interception, pass breakup, quarterback hurry, forced fumble, fumble recovery, blocked kick and touchdown. This year, he needs only a fumble recovery to do it again for BYU (5-4).
