61st Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl
Congratulations Montell Kirkland
Vermont found life with Tommy Fitzgerald’s 23-yard run for first down on a fake punt and Montell Kirkland’s strip-sack fumble. While Fitzgerald’s fake didn’t result in any points, Kirkland’s defensive play set up Vermont’s one score.
“I was hoping my team could still contain him and I was coming around to run after (Knight). When I saw he was stuck, I went for the ball,” said Burlington’s Kirkland of the blindside hit.
