For those keeping score at home, Bud Foster held Urban Meyer and Ohio State to 327 yards, meanwhile Nick Saban and Kirby Smart gave up 537 yards. Bud is without a doubt the best in the business.

Virginia Tech's win in the 'Shoe is what I will fondly remember most about the 2014 football season, but a transitive football playoff win or national championship doesn't mean anything to me. However, Tech's early season win and looming rematch might keep this team highly motivated throughout the offseason. That's a good thing.
