Top 10 Plays: Sanchez protects the end zone

Shane Carden and East Carolina entered Lane Stadium and left with Hokie booty as the Pirates upended then-No. 17 Virginia Tech 28-21 on Saturday. Carden led his team in the stunner by completing 23-of-47 passes and adding three passing touchdowns. The game-sealing score came off his rushing touchdown in the final seconds of the game. East Carolina served Virginia Tech a taste of its own medicine as the Hokies upset Ohio State last week.

Washington linebacker Shaq Thompson paraded his athleticism on Saturday in a 44-19 rout of Illinois. Thompson single-handedly outscored a lethargic Illini offense 14-12 in the first half with a 52-yard pick six in the first quarter and 36-yard fumble return in the second frame. The linebacker also added 16 rushing yards and four tackles to his effort. Thompson, who was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 2012, looked at home on the gridiron.

Scott Stadium was silent as Virginia kicker Ian Frye attempted a last-second field goal to secure the game against visiting Atlantic Coastal Conference opponent, Louisville. The 42-yarder was up. Good. Game over. Frye’s game-winner put the Cavaliers atop the Cardinals 23-21 and ended the team’s 10-game losing streak to conference opponents. Fans rushed the field and a celebration ensued.
