Orange Bowl 2011: Tyrod Taylor Makes Incredible Touchdown Throw To Put Virginia Tech Up 9-7 On Stanford

Tyrod Taylor isn't supposed to be a high draft prospect, but he exhibited his potential to give the Virginia Tech Hokies their first lead in the 2011 Orange Bowl against the Stanford Cardinal. He started his drive off by scrambling for 22 yards. He found Marcus Davis for 10 yards. Richard Sherman was called for a pass interference penalty. Taylor then found Danny Coale to set up the Hokies in the red zone.

Then on 3rd down he made one of those throws that harkens back to the Michael Vick era. Taylor scrambled toward the sideline, seemed to be ready to go out of bounds, but at the last minute stopped, evaded the sack by Owen Marecic, then fired a bullet down to the corner of the end zone that was hauled in by running back David Wilson for the go-ahead touchdown.

Those are throws that get you on Heisman tapes. Check out the video here.
