P: A.J. Hughes - Virginia Tech
Punter | Virginia Tech
Neither Virginia Tech nor Rutgers managed more than 200 yards of offense in the Hokies' 13-10 overtime win at the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, Fla. So punting and field position were at a premium, and Hughes more than delivered for the Hokies. Hughes, a freshman walk-on from Terre Haute, Ind., averaged 42.2 yards on 11 punts, including three punts longer than 50 yards. He pinned the Scarlet Knights inside their 20-yard line four times, helping Virginia Tech's defense to slow them down.
