It's the little things ...

MIAMI -- Stanford leads Virginia Tech 19-12, and in such a tightly contested game, it's the little things that will add up big.

Like Stanford's two missed extra points. Like Virgnia Tech cornerback Jayron Hosley's dropped interception. Like a safety. Not a lot separates these two teams.

Both quarterbacks have had their moments. It seems like the kind of game where whoever has the ball last will win. But both teams have also had a few mistakes that could come back to haunt them in the end. Whoever makes fewer mistakes in this half is likely to come out on top.
