Four tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, and yet the most eye catching part of defensive tackle Ricky Walker's stat line in Virginia Tech's 59-7 romp over North Carolina was a 12-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown. The Hokies' initial points of the afternoon.
"That's actually my first touchdown ever," said Walker of his scoop-and-score. "I was lucky enough to get the Sunday hop. It hopped right in my hands. I just knew that they was going to blow it incomplete. I just ran to the end zone, and the next thing you know my teammates celebrating with me. So I'm just celebrating also. I was happy. I just happened to be in the right spot at the right time."
VT's Ricky Walker became the 49th different defensive player under coordinator @coachfostervt to score a TD

I'm most certainly not going to let a fat guy touchdown, especially one by one of the most dominant DTs in the Power Five, simply fly under the radar.
