1) With 4 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, BC punted from their own endzone. The Hokies, already up 10-0, had all the momentum and were about the get the ball in PHENOMENAL field position. Inexplicably, Coach Beamer calls for a punt block and Dustin Pickle gets through the line and misses the ball but bumps the kicker. It was clearly running into the kicker, a 5 yard penalty, but the ref called the 15 yard variety and the Eagles advanced the ball all the way to their 37 yard line before being stopped. A huge swing in field position prevented the Hokies from icing the game, which became a theme the rest of the way.
2) From his own 8 yard line on 2nd and 10 and the crowd at it's most deafening with 4 minutes left in the game, Matt Ryan delivers a 23 yard strike and begins a TD drive. This ball gave Ryan his confidence and a rhythm despite being tossed around all game and he responded by catching fire. I contend the entire game ends differently if the receiver doesn't make that catch.
3) Obviously the final TD pass of the game is the third key play. Facing 3rd and 20 with 23 seconds remaining, Ryan rolls to his right, looks back across his body and finds Andre Callender who had gotten behind the defense for a 24 yard touchdown to win the game for the Eagles. Despite a mental breakdown on the defense's part, you have to admire how difficult that play was for Ryan to make and he made it to win the game. It should have never come to that, but it did.
