DEFENSIVE BACK – Kendall Fuller, Virginia Tech, Fr., CB, 5-11, 180, Baltimore, Md. Fuller was a lockdown corner all day for the Hokies in shutting down the Virginia offense in Virginia Tech’s 16-6 win. He had a career-high eight tackles and four pass break-ups to go along with a half-sack and his team-leading and Tech freshman record sixth interception of the year.
OFFENSIVE LINEMAN – Andrew Miller, Virginia Tech, Sr.-R, LB, 6-4, 293, Bassett, Va. Playing in his final game against Virginia Tech’s in-state rival, Miller had perhaps the finest game of his career in Saturday’s 16-6 win at Virginia. Miller played all 75 offensive snaps, grading out at 92 percent with a career-high 20 knockdown blocks as the Tech offensive line paved the way for nearly 150 yards on the ground by the running backs. He finished the regular season with an 86 percent grade and a team-high 115 knockdowns, 56 more than his closest teammate.
