January 3, 2011: Orange Bowl Tickets: Stanford vs. Virginia Tech at Sun Life Stadium
The 2011 Discover Orange Bowl will pit the Stanford Cardinals against the Virginia Tech Hokies in Miami at Sun Life Stadium. Orange Bowl tickets will be available for the great game on January 1, 2011 that takes great college football teams from the Pac-10 and the ACC.
The Stanford Cardinals come into the game 11-1, ranked fourth in the polls and second in the Pac-10. The team averaged an incredible 40.3 points a game thanks to an offense that picked up 256.3 passing yards and 211 rushing yards a game. Stanford also offers a very good defense, holding other teams to 17.8 points per game. Quarterback Andrew Luck performed so well he earned a Heisman nomination. Luck passed for 3,051 yards, 28 touchdowns, only 7 interceptions, and had a 166.1 QB Rating. He also managed to run for 438 yards and 3 touchdowns. He may not have won the Heisman, but he is most likely the number one pick in the NFL draft. The offense is based on the run though, and RB Stepfan Taylor ran for 1,023 yards and 15 touchdowns as the main running back in a system installed by Jim Harbaugh with plenty of options at running back.
Frank Beamer once again worked his magic with the Virginia Tech Hokies football team. They went 11-2 overall, 8-0 in the ACC, and finished the season ranked 13th in the polls. Not bad for a team left for dead after two losses to open the 2010 college football season. The Hokies average 35.5 points per game thanks to the 202.2 passing yards and 208.9 rushing yards they manage to collect a game. They also give up 19.1 points a game, which the 16th stingiest scoring defense in the land.
The key to the Hockies success has been Quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Taylor threw for 2,521 yards and 23 touchdowns with only 4 interceptions. That TD-INT ratio is incredible. He is also a very real running threat, picking up 637 yards and 5 touchdowns over the course of the season.
The season ends for both teams on January 3, 2011, so get your Orange Bowl tickets to see two teams that love to run take the field at Sun Life Stadium in Miami for one of four BCS bowl games.
