More memorable moments from 2010

1/18/2011

There were too many memorable moments to cram into one post, so here's the extended version. This morning I gave you my top 10. Here are the honorable mentions:

  • Greg Reid's hit on Marcus Lattimore in the Chick-fil-A Bowl win over South Carolina.

  • UNC wins at Virginia for the first time since 1981; Dwight Jones had188 yards and two touchdowns on six catches -- in the first half.

  • UNC's first-ever win in Tallahassee on wide right: Casey Barth hit the game-winner with 55 seconds remaining to give the Tar Heels their first win at FSU in nine tries. Florida State kicker Dustin Hopkins missed two field goals in the fourth quarter, including a 40-yard try with seven seconds left.

  • Desmond Scott’s game-winning 35-yard touchdown run against Virginia: Duke's running back scored with 40 seconds remaining to give the Blue Devils a 55-48 win. The run capped a 10-play, 91-yard drive that included a 32-yard completion from Sean Renfree to Donovan Varner on 4th-and-20 from the Duke 13 yard line. That fourth-and-20 alone was pretty memorable. Speaking of Renfree ...

  • His performance at Navy: He completed 28 of 30 passes -- remarkable -- to snap a six-game losing streak with the 34-31 road win. He set a new school record for completion percentage (.933) and also matched the school record with 16 consecutive pass completions. He finished with 314 yards and one touchdown, nine carries for 38 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Josh Harris runs wild against Hokies: On Oct. 16, Wake's redshirf freshman running back rushed for 241 yards at Virginia Tech. It was the sixth-most rushing yards ever by a Wake Forest back and the most ever allowed by Virginia Tech.

  • Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers won the Nagurski Award: It was the top award won by an ACC player in 2010.

  • Joshua Nesbitt's 9-yard touchdown pass to Correy Earls with 15 seconds left gave Tech a win at Wake Forest.

  • Christian Ponder's fumble on what would have been the game-winning drive against NC State. Nate Irving recovered to seal the win and give the Pack the head-to-head tiebreaker if need be in the Atlantic Division race.
