Hokies will play Clemson in ACC championship game
Question of the Day
“We realize that one loss doesn’t define your season, but it does hurt, and it should hurt because the game of football means a lot to all of us and we take it seriously,” Rocco said. “We have to turn the page and watch the film and get better.”
The Hokies can attest that one loss doesn’t define a season. They get a second shot now at Clemson, the only team to beat them this year. They’ve been hoping for a rematch since the Tigers beat them 23-3 in Blacksburg on Oct. 1.
“It’s a fantastic thing for us,” Beamer said. “This team has hung in there throughout the year after the early loss to Clemson and some injuries.
“It wasn’t always pretty, but we played hard. What happened tonight and getting back [to the championship game] is really special in my way of thinking.”
