CHICAGO - St. Norbert College senior defensive back Frank Laterza's 84-yard interception return for a touchdown on Sept. 5 is nominated for the GEICO Play of the Year, Intersport announced today. Each week, fans vote for the GEICO Play of the Year and the winner will be announced during GEICO's Best of College Football 2015 on CBS at 1:30 p.m. EST on Nov. 27.

In addition to recognizing the season's top plays, the one-hour CBS special relives the football season's greatest moments, players and traditions. The show also marks the culmination of the GEICO "Best of 2015" Football Tour, an interactive fan experience that visits 30 marquee games throughout the season.

Each week for five weeks, four incredible college football plays will be nominated as the Play of the Year on the GEICO Best of College Football Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/bestofcollegefootball). The five weekly winners will then faceoff in a week of finals voting from November 9 through 16 to determine the 2015 GEICO Play of the Year.

Nearing the end of their game against Carthage College, Laterza returned an interception 84 yards for a touchdown to give the Green Knight's a 35-6 lead. Watch the play and vote here at: http://on.fb.me/1pvQrJi

Laterza's return is competing against three other plays from week one: Delware Valley Marc Isaac's 50-yard touchdown run off a fumble, a 49-yard touchdown reception by Catholic University's Lucas Morley and an intercepted 100-yard touchdown return by St. Thomas' Jordan Young.

To watch and vote for Laterza or any of the other week one highlight plays, visit www.facebook.com/BestofCollegeFootball. Fans can vote once a day. Week one voting opened today and ends Monday, Oct. 12, at 11:59 a.m. CT.
