No. 8 Kansas 24, No. 5 Virginia Tech 21
MIAMI (AP) -- The Kansas Jayhawks came up with three
interceptions and beat Virginia Tech 24-21 in the Orange Bowl
tonight to cap one of the finest seasons in school history.
The turnovers led to 17 Kansas points, including a 60-yard
return by Aqib Talib for the game's first score. He was chosen the
game's most valuable player.
Number 8 Kansas finished 12-1 and was perhaps the biggest
surprise in college football this season.
A year ago the Jayhawks went 6-6.
The Number 5 Hokies finished 11-3 and lost their fourth
consecutive BCS game.
The Jayhawks played in their first major bowl since the 1969
Orange Bowl, and they raced to a 17-0 lead after 23 minutes.
