3 Key Plays - VT vs. Wiliam & Mary

1) In the 1st quarter after getting two drives DEEP in W&M territory and having to settle for field goals, the Hokies caught a break when W&M's long snapper sailed a punt snap to high and the Hokies took over on the 5 yard line. It led to the first TD and really ended the game in terms of whether VT would win or lose.

2) At the beginning of the 2nd qtr, Eddie Royal houses a 59 yard return to put VT up 34-0. This was the first big special teams play of the year for the Hokies and it was a great one. The special teams has been so solid in all phases and they finally had a break out game. Eddie Royal is also now the all-time punt returner in VT history.

3) With 2 minutes left in the half, Tyrod Taylor finds Branden Ore on a screen pass, and Ore takes it 48 yards for the final play from the 1st string offense. It was a good confidence builder for Taylor who had run well in the first half but passed very poorly.
