Pittsburgh WR Larry Fitzgerald
versus
Virginia Tech CB Eric Green

Fitzgerald, a 6'3", 225-pound sophomore, has 60 catches and leads Division I-A with 146.7 receiving yards per game. He has caught at least one TD pass in an NCAA-record 14 straight games. With Hokies star corner DeAngelo Hall suspended for the first half, after getting ejected for fighting against Miami, the pressure of containing Fitzgerald falls to Green, a 5'11", 189-pound junior. Green isn't as good as Hall, but he's an above average corner and has two interceptions.
