BLACKSBURG, Va. -- A few additional notes:
Eddie Whitley earned his first collegiate start today in place of injured cornerback Stephan Virgil, who didn't dress for today's game. Fullback Kenny Jefferson also made his first collegiate start.
Long snapper Collin Carroll suffered a sprained ankle in the second quarter and is doubtful to return. He has been replaced by senior walk-on Matt Tuttle.
Nebraska kicker Alex Henerey's four first-half field goals is closing in on a record. The Lane Stadium record for field goals in a game by an opponent is five by Rafael Garcia of Virginia in 1994. The stadium record is six.
If Virginia Tech allows Roy Helu Jr. to rush for 100 yards, it will mark the third-straight game the Hokies have allowed a 100-yard rusher. Virginia Tech hasn't done that since 2002.
