2011 Orange Bowl, Stanford Vs. Virginia Tech: Tipped Andrew Luck Pass Leads To Safety

The first quarter of the 2011 Orange Bowl is more than half done, and in true Orange Bowl fashion, not much is happening. Tyrod Taylor is making acrobatic throws; Andrew Luck is motoring about with his fireplug legs, but neither team has had much success advancing past third down. 

After another short-lived Virginia Tech possession, Stanford takes over pinned at their own 3-yard line. Stepfan Taylor seems to be a known quantity to the Hokies at this point, and his first two runs go nowhere. On third down, all hell breaks loose as Andrew Luck attempts a desperation heave out of his own endzone. The pass is tipped, and an offensive lineman, instead of batting the ball away, catches it and falls down for a Hokies safety. With 1:30 remaining in the first quarter, Stanford leads Virginia Tech, 7-2.
