I surprised some people with my running ability. I have been waiting two years to get out there.

You want to protect the football, no matter what. Being that it's Virginia Tech and they got us last year and it's such a big rival, it just adds that much more to it.

I've never won a game without an offensive touchdown. It was very frustrating to keep driving the ball and have the turnovers. But we had to block it out and just focus on coming back.

These guys, our offensive line, they look forward to challenges like that. There's no doubt in my mind they'll be ready.
