2009 Nebraska Game Analysis: Hokies Overcome Tough Day

As usual, much of this article is going to focus on detailing specific plays
– what went right, what went wrong. Yes, the offense was MIA for most of the
game. Yes, the defense has some holes to plug. But the one point worth noting
right at the top is that Tyrod Taylor is a winner. He had an off day for much of
the game, but at the end he dug deep to find that extra something that most
players simply do not have. Will the memorable finish springboard him to that
next level as a college QB? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain – in
those final two minutes, he carried the burden of a frustrating and very
disappointing loss on his shoulders and somehow found a way to make two huge
plays with Nebraska’s monster DT breathing down his neck. And the winner pulled
out an impossible win.
