Game Notes
Memorabilia
9/1/1990
at Kansas
W, 59-10
Despite temperatures reaching 130 degrees on
Kansas' AstroTurf, the Hoos score on 9 of 12
possessions and stomp the Jayhawks.
 
9/8/1990
vs. #9 Clemson
W, 20-7
The Hoos finally end Clemson's 29-game winning
streak and get their first-ever victory over a team
ranked in the top 10. This game also marked the first
and only time I ever ran on the field after a game.
Unfortunately, my celebration was short-lived, as my
buddy Sgt. Party took a running start and speared me
in the back after I'd gotten two steps onto the field,
driving my face into the turf and breaking my glasses.
All in all, a pretty great day.
9/15/1990
vs. Navy
W, 56-14
Shawn Moore accounts for six TDs (four passing,
two rushing) in just two and a half quarters as the
Hoos roll up 664 yards of total offense, their most
since 1968.
9/22/1990
at Duke
W, 59-0
The Hoos enter the top-10 for the first time since 1952,
then celebrate by putting up the largest margin of
victory in an ACC game since the conference was
formed in 1953.
9/29/1990
vs. William & Mary
W, 63-35
Terry Kirby (23 carries for 188 yards and four TDs)
and Nikki Fisher (14 carries for 164 yards and two
TDs) run wild, but the defense gives up more points
than it had in the first four games combined.
 
10/13/1990
vs. NC State
W, 31-0
Chris Slade has 4.5 sacks, Keith McMeans picks off
the 17th pass of his career (a Virginia record), and
Herman Moore catches six passes for 162 yards and
two TDs as the Hoos roll.
 
10/20/1990
at Wake Forest
W, 49-14
We're number one! We're number one!
11/3/1990
vs. #16 Georgia Tech
L, 41-38
It's been more than 19 years, and I still can't talk about
this game. Seriously.
 
11/10/1990
at UNC
W, 24-10
Shawn Moore continues to lead the nation in passing
efficiency, completing 16 of 22 passes for 236 yards
and two TDs.
11/17/1990
vs. Maryland
L, 35-30
I'm still not sure how we lost this one. On a possibly
related note, this was my 4th year fifth game.
 
11/24/1990
at Virginia Tech
L, 38-13
Matt Blundin struggles a bit in his second career start
(for an injured Shawn Moore), and the Hokies take full
advantage.
1/1/1991
vs. #10 Tennessee
(Sugar Bowl)
L, 23-22
This is a verbatim exchange that my college roommate
and I had with a Tennessee fan while tailgating before
the game:

    My Roommate: Who you rooting for?

    Vols fan (decked out from head to toe in UT
    gear): The Volunteers!

    My Roommate: That's a shame, I had taken
    you for a handsome, intelligent man.

    Vols fan: Well, looks can be deceiving!

In his defense, he was kind enough to give us this
nifty button.
