Vernon Turner will go down in Buc history
Demetrius DuBose and the Buc defense steps up
Ernest Hooper joins the Bucs faithful in the stands
After 18 years of trying, the Bucs finally returned a kick or punt for a touchdown when Vernon Turner took a punt back 80 yards in front of the Bucs' home fans. Errict Rhett's running controlled the clock and Mike McGruder stripping Brett Perriman inside the Buc 10-yard line in the fourth quarter preserved the victory.
