The bane of the 2010 Michigan Wolverines: not getting off the field third-and-long. They improved from No. 95 in the country to No. 32 this year under new coordinator Greg Mattison, but nothing stays dead in New Orleans. The Virginia Tech Hokies have already converted three of five third downs, including two of 10 or more yards on their latest drive.
Still, MIchigan held third-string kicker Justin Myer to a successful 43-yard field goal, and now it's 6-0, Hokies. After a bowl weekend riddled with especially collegiate kicking, this is already impressive.
