Third Quarter: Michigan 17, Virginia Tech 9
By Heather Dinich
NEW ORLEANS -- Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has looked both subpar and spectacular in this game. He's made poor throws and bad decisions, but his two remarkable touchdown passes have been the difference. For Robinson to have minus-one yard rushing on 10 carries and still be winning is just one of the many baffling facets of this game so far.
It's also looking like a typical ACC implosion.
Virginia Tech somehow snuck into this BCS bowl as the ACC's first at-large team, but it can't seem to find its way into the end zone here at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Kicker Justin Myer has been the only offense for the Hokies. If Virginia Tech is going to get back into this game, its best hope might be another big play or turnover from the defense.
