    Ole Miss survives Hokies 38-34
    Who says you can't go home? In a game that took a significant hit last week after losses by both teams, Ole Miss found a way to pull off a huge upset over the Viginia Tech Hokies. There was no downplaying the significance in this one, VT was looking to hold on to a possible at large spot in the BCS, Ole Miss needed this one to maybe have a chance to put themselves in position at the end of the year to come out on top of a possible three way tie scenario in the SEC west. This was a well played game on both sides but at the end of the day there has to be a winner and loser, and today when the dust settled it was the Rebels.
    Virginia Tech won the toss and elected to give the Rebels high power offense the ball to start the game. Ole Miss as they have done all year, took the ball out of the end zone and was stopped at their own 15. Bo Wallace drove them straight down the field on a 6 play 85 yard drive to take a early 7-0 lead. Virginia Tech looked good on their first offensive drive moving into Rebel territory. Ole Miss found a rare 3rd down stop forcing the Hokies into what looked to be a punting situation. VT opted to try a 59 yard field goal which was just short. The Rebels took over near midfield and tried to get the running game going to no avail and was forced to a 3 and out. Virginia Tech marched right back into Rebel territory, but Ole Miss got another key 3rd down stop forcing a long field goal and maintaining a 7-3 lead. Bo Wallace lead another 9 play 78 yard drive for a 14-3 lead. Virginia Tech stormed into Rebel territory, but Ole Miss got pressure on 3rd down forcing a field goal and a 14-6 lead. The Rebels wasted no time capitalizing going 78 yards on 4 plays for a 21-6 lead and all the momentum. Virginia Tech showed no quit, answering on a 7 play 80 yard drive to cut the lead to 21-13 with 1:20 left in the half. Ole Miss drove inside the Virginia Tech 25 but Bo Wallace made his first mistake of the day throwing a pick. Virginia Tech seemed to have survived the Rebels blows and went into halftime with momentum despite trailing 21-13.
    The first play from scrimmage in the second half seen qb Logan Thomas, after getting pressured take off down the weak side of the field, Thomas was ripped from behind by Denzel Nkemdiche and the Rebels recovered for a big momentum swing. With their backs against the wall the Hokie defense came up huge, forcing a 3 and out, forcing Ole Miss to a field goal an a 24-13 lead. Virginia Tech went on a long taxing drive taking some wind out of the Rebel sails cutting the lead to 24-20. The Rebels moved the ball near midfield on their next possession, but a huge int for the Hokies near midfield on 3rd down seemed to be the game changer. Virginia Tech would capitalize on the turnover, finding the end zone for their first lead of the game 27-24. Ole Miss would move the ball on their next possession, but the Hokie defense would hold near midfield once again forcing a Rebel punt. The feeling in the game at this point, was that the Hokie's defense was just to much and the Rebels gave it their best shot but it just didn't seem to be enough. The Hokie's started their drive from their own 15 yard line, but the Rebel defense found another 3 and out in them forcing the Hokie punt. Treadwell returned the punt near midfield and momentum in this game was swinging like crazy. Ole Miss capitalized on the balance they had found throughout the game, with Jeff Scott finding the end zone with 3:03 left in the game, for a 31-27 lead. The Hokie's had yet another answer driving 75 yards in less than two minutes to regain the lead 34-31 with 71 second left. Ole Miss with 3 timeouts appeared to be calm using the whole field and playbook driving deep into Hokie territory. After a 15 yard pass, the Rebels found themselves first and goal from the 8 yard line with 27 seconds left and one timeout. Bo Wallace found Christian Morgan uncovered at the 4 yard line and with the defense closing fast, the big TE lowered his head coming close to the goal line. The line judge without hesitation signaled the touchdown, on a play that was sure to be reviewed. No review came and Ole Miss took the lead 38-34 with 20 seconds left in the game. The Hokie's couldn't get anything off in the last 20 seconds and Ole Miss hung on to win the game. This was definitely a game you hated to see end, and a classic for sure.

    Yeah it was a good game. I'm not sure what happened to my defense the past two weeks though, I haven't been able to cover anyone.
