Air Force Quarterback Rob Perez led the Falcon offensive attack as he ran for 114 yards and a touchdown, earning the game’s MVP award. Perez became the only player in AutoZone Liberty Bowl history to earn the honor twice. 50 Years Ago | December 10,1966 – Miami (FL) vs. Virginia TecThe 8th annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl pitted #9 Miami against Virginia Tech. Both teams were stout defensively as hVirginia Tech boasted All-Americans Frank Loria and George Foussekis, while Miami was led by threetime All-American and future NFL Hall of Fame Linebacker Ted Hendricks. In what was a defensive battle for most of the game, the Hurricanes used two second half scores to defeat the Hokies 14-7. Miami Tight End Jimmy Cox was named the game’s MVP for his five-catch, 77- yard performance, as he amassed nearly half of Miami’s 163 yards of total offense.
