Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas completed 24 of 41 passes for 391 yards and two TDs, but was picked off twice and fumbled twice, leading to 17 of Boston College's points.
Virginia Tech coughed up four interceptions in varied and comical fashion, converted just 4 of 18 third down attempts and missed a pair of field goals. And could not possibly have won. Perhaps that best explains how the Hokies finally got burned in a humiliating 13-10 loss to Duke after playing with fire all season.
The Blue Devils (6-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a ranked team for the first time since they stopped No. 13 Virginia in 1994, and beat one on the road for the first time since Stanford in 1971.
Oddly, the angst over the Redskins' current situation provides one small supporting argument for why the team should stick with Shanahan. For most of the seasons between the end of the first Joe Gibbs regime and Shanahan's arrival, something like 1-4 would be the norm.
The idea of Tennessee and Virginia Tech playing a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway has been tossed around for about 15 years, maybe more.
Tennessee and Virginia Tech will finally play a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway and expect to set a single-game football attendance record in what is being billed as the "Battle at Bristol."
Logan Thomas threw an early touchdown pass, Cody Journell kicked four field goals and Virginia Tech sacked Pittsburgh's Tom Savage eight times in a 19-9 victory on Saturday, sending the Hokies into their off week on a six-game winning streak.
The Panthers visit Lane Stadium this week as owners of a four-game winning streak against the Hokies. That includes last season's 35-17 shellacking at Pittsburgh that knocked the Hokies out of the top 25 and kept them out until this week.
Distilled to its essence, Beamer Ball consists of making big plays in all three facets of the game. When the great Virginia Tech teams were doing just that, it was a confirmation of what Beamer spoke of Saturday: the presence of chemistry, trust and togetherness.
