Game Notes
Program/Ticket
9/7/1996
vs. Central Michigan
W, 55-21
The Hoos score TDs on an interception return (James Farrior),
kick return (Joe Rowe) and blocked punt (Rowe), and Thomas
Jones rumbles for a 57-yard TD on his first career carry.
 
9/14/1996
vs. Maryland
W, 21-3
George Welsh becomes the first coach in ACC history with
100 wins, celebrates by throwing his hat in disgust.
 
9/21/1996
at Wake Forest
W, 42-7
The Hoos hold Wake Forest to -45 yards rushing. That's not a
typo.
 
9/28/1996
vs. #13Texas
W, 37-13
Tiki Barber scores three 1st quarter TDs and the Hoos'
defense holds Ricky Asshat to 44 yards rushing. (As an aside,
the running backs in this game included not only Asshat and
Tiki, but also Priest Holmes and Thomas Jones. That's just
silly.)
10/5/1996
at Georgia Tech
L, 13-7
Georgia Tech takes a giant dump on our undefeated season.
That almost never happens.
 
10/19/1996
vs. NC State
W, 62-14
The legend of Anthony Poindexter continues to grow, as he
picks off three passes and blocks a punt. (Also, Tim Sherman
threw 2 TD passes, which is noteworthy primarily because we
only had 5 TD passes all season.)
 
10/26/1996
at #3 Florida State
L, 31-24
I don't remember many details from this game, but I assume
FSU cheated.
11/2/1996
at Duke
W, 27-3
I looked at Duke's roster for this game and seriously did not
remember a single player. Duke football...CATCH IT!
 
11/9/1996
vs. Clemson
L, 24-16
Tiki Barber's streak of consecutive games with 100+ yards
rushing is stopped at 8.
11/16/1996
vs. UNC
W, 20-17
I watched this game with a bunch of UNC fans at the Hooters
in downtown Baltimore. That was pretty great. (For the
record, I was at Hooters against my will. The nude hose /
satin shorts combo doesn't really do it for me.)
11/29/1996
at #17 Virginia Tech
L, 26-9
Tiki Barber becomes UVA's all-time leading rusher,
surpassing all-around badass Terry Kirby. For Tech, Jim
Druckenmiller plays the entire game without being arrested.
Congrats, Jim!
12/27/1996
vs. Miami
(Carquest Bowl)
L, 31-21
Tim Sherman and Tiki Barber get knocked out early, and
Miami defensive back Tremain Mack turns in a Dex-like
performance, returning a fumble and an interception for TDs
and blocking a field goal.
