Like teammate Manti Te’o before him, Nix said he wants to share Senior Day with his loved ones, especially his mother, Stephanie Wingfield.
Yesterday afternoon, both Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples and Yahoo’s Pat Forde published great features on the Irish’s enormous defensive lineman and resident YouTube funnyman. Check them out below.
