After slow start, Tech’s offense breaks away in 35-17 win over Wake Forest
Things looked grim for the Hokies. On Tanner Price’s 79-yard touchdown pass to Chris Givens in the first quarter, All-American cornerback Jayron Hosley pulled up lame. He tweaked his left hamstring and was out for the game. His absence Saturday left Tech without four defensive starters — two of whom are out for the season.
But after that touchdown, Tech’s defense locked down the Demon Deacons (4-2, 3-1). Their final six drives of the first half consisted of four three-and-outs and two four-and-outs. After the Hokies’ brutal first five drives, they scored touchdowns on three of their final four drives of the half. The Hokies finished the second quarter having outgained Wake 200-25. They never looked back.
“No one panicked,” coach Frank Beamer said. “Everyone kept doing their business.”
