Noles Lose 44-33 in ACC Title Game

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Tyrod Taylor threw three touchdown passes
and scrambled for another and surging Virginia Tech captured its
third Atlantic Coast Conference title in four years with a 44-33
victory over Florida State on Saturday night.
After the 12th-ranked Hokies (11-2) had their national title
hopes dashed in a five-day nightmare of consecutive loses to start
the season, coach Frank Beamer's squad recovered by dominating the

    I think Jimbo was genuinely concerned for Ponder's elbow ! I hope he will get to play in the bowl game sice he is a sr. but the safety of his elbow is more important than a game. to noleeps... YES Manuel is a good QB and we will do gr8 next yr with him.. however I love CP7 and I think Ponder uses his team more, Manuel is having some Tebow tendecies that we don't need, football is a team effort not a one man wrecking crew!! GO NOLES !! I hope Dfense will play much much better against Spurrier's team... How sweet it would be to beat him again !!

    Manuel is by far the better QB. I hope that he plays in the bowl game. Problem is with our pass defense which is awful.

    what i heard was on the last elbow drainage procedure there was blood which could represent something more serious. perhaps saving him for the bowl game or just genuinely concerned for his well being.

    Who's bone head decision was it to sit Ponder in his last chance for an ACC championship? They play him in the Florida game without worring about ending his career. What changed the last 6 days.
