Virginia Tech Takes the Commonwealth Cup
Virginia Tech has not lost to Virginia since 2003, but survived a massive horror in a wild competition on Saturday afternoon in Blacksburg. Hokiesna ran 31-24 with 2:41 to play, but Ryan Willis led the Hokies on a wild drive with two unbelievable throws that resulted in a touchdown where Hezekiah Grimsley recovered a fumble of teammates Steven Peoples in the final zone. After a field goal in overtime, Hokies recovered a fumble on a zone-league exchange at the bottom of the first overtime frame for a walk-off win. The 5-6 Hokies will host Marshall next week to compensate for a game against East Carolina that was interrupted. If they win, it will extend their bowl stretch to 26 consecutive years.
Oregon had no problem with the rival Oregon state in the Civil War. The men won 55-15 thanks to 197 meters and two touchdowns on the ground from Travis Dye, 187 yards and four touchdowns from CJ Verdell and 390 total rushing yards at night. But the great news was at the center. Quarterback Justin Herbert did not get out of the dressing room for the second half with his team. While there was no word on his status, Herbert looked up gingerly after meeting in the second quarter. Braxton Burmeister came in for Herbert in the second half.
UCF quarterback Milton McKenzie left the match against USF in the first halfand was replaced by Darriel Mack. The freshman threw for 81 meters and ran for 51 after getting in for the injured knight’s superstar. Before his injury, McKenzie threw a touchdown to Gabriel Davis and Greg McCrae ran into another to help build a 17-3 lead at half. McCrae became the focal point of the break in the second half, made two further touchdowns and ended the day with 181 rushing yards as the knights won 38-10.
It was not easy, but Longhorn earned a place in the Big 12 Championship Game with a 24-17 victory in Kansas. Quarterback Sam Ehlinger was irregular but efficient enough, throw for 154 meters, two touchdowns and two picks. Longhorns was up 21-0 in half-time, but Kansas drove the lead to 24-14 and then recovered a 3:27 start-up play. But Longhorn’s defense held the Jayhawks to a field goal and then pulled out the road to the win.
Miguel Recinos struck a 41-yard goal to give Hawkeyes a 31-28 home win over Nebraska to drive his record to 8-4 and give coach Kirk Ferentz a $ 500,000 bonus for an eight winter season. However, it was not without stress. Cornhuskers polished a 14-play, 98-yard run early in the fourth quarter to reduce the lead to 28-20. They then walked 80 yards to 13 games and hit a 2-point turn at 3:22 to play to tie it at 28 to give fans hope that Scott Frost’s crew would go through. Hawkeyes drive back Mekhi Sargent was today’s star, rushed for 173 meters and one point.
Memphis topped Houston in a wild 52-31 to earn a chance to squad with UCF in next week’s AAC Championship Game. Darrell Henderson ran for 174 yards and two touchdowns – both in the fourth quarter – lead the tigers and cement their place as one of the best players in the program. Houston Star Defensive tackle Ed Oliver came back to play after a month but was pulled in the second half. Cougars coach Major Applewhite said after the game that his knee began to bother him. This is a week away fromafter Oliver wore a jacket reserved for active players.
Texas announced Friday morning to linebacker Gary Johnson would not play vs Kansas due to a violation of the law . Johnson has been one of the most productive defensive players for Longhorns, which led the team with 74 tackles and 14 tackles for loss. But Texas coach Tom Herman also confirmed that quarterback Sam Ehlinger (axel) begins . With a victory vs. Jayhawks, Longhorns will beat his ticket to the Big 12 Championship Game next week.
