While it's Willis' first season at Virginia Tech, he spent two seasons at Kansas, throwing for 432 yards and 12 touchdowns.
At the time Jackson was injured, the Hokies were tied 28-28 with the Monarchs in the fourth quarter. Shortly after he was taken to the locker room, Old Dominion took a 35-28 lead, but Ryan Willis led a touchdown drive of his own to tie the game 35-35 halfway through the fourth quarter.
