Extra notes on Virginia Tech-Nebraska

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

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 He has been replaced by senior walk-on Matt Tuttle.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.
