Jacksonville, FL - Jan. 2, 2006

Jim Donnan I was impressed with Louisville's Hunter Cantwell in a backup role, but in the end it was just too much Virginia Tech. I thought the Hokies' ability to cause turnovers and to make plays with Marcus Vick passing and with the running game was the difference. The Hokies just took over in the second half, but it was a lot more competitive than I thought it would be with Louisville's backup quarterback in there. -- Jim Donnan
