He was a starter from 1979 to 1982 and led the Mountaineers to the 1981 Peach Bowl and the 1982 Gator Bowl. Against Pitt, he intercepted Dan Marino to set up a Mountaineer field goall and blocked a punt and returned it for a touchdown. As a senior in 1982, he was selected as West Virginia’s third-ever consensus All-American. He started the season off with a win over Oklahoma and was named WVU’s season MVP and was named All-American. He also played in the 1983 Hula Bowl.

While with the Bills, Talley had multiple nicknames on the field as “The Duke of Awesome”, “Spider-Man”, and “The Hammer”. His cheering section at Rich Stadium was known as the “Talley-Whackers”. On November 4, 1990, playing against the Cleveland Browns in his hometown, Talley returned an interception for his first career touchdown. After the season, he received the Ed Block Courage Award.
