Virginia Tech trounced by Stanford

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Virginia Tech fans are waking up this morning wishing that last night's Orange Bowl was just a dream.

It was Virginia Tech versus Stanford in sunny Miami, Florida.

It was the Hokies' 18th year in a row playing in a bowl game.

It started off promising for the Hokies.

In the second quarter, VT quarterback Tyrod Taylor made a great play on a TD pass to David Wilson, who made a nice catch near the sideline.

The touchdown gave the Hokies a 9-7 lead, but it would be their only advantage of the game.

In the second half, it was all Stanford.

After a Stanford interception by Matt Walter on the Stanford one yard line, Stepfan Taylor ran 56 yards and Andrew Luck completed a long 41 yard pass to Coby Fleener for a quick TD.

Fleener ended up with three TDs for the game.

Final score... Stanford 40, Virginia Tech 12.
