Looking back at some memorable home Thursday night football game performances
The Notebook
Over the years, some of Virginia Tech’s best and most-memorable performances have come at home on Thursday night with the ESPN cameras rolling. The Hokies will host North Carolina this Thursday in another ESPN contest. Here's a look at some of those memorable nights.
    1994 vs. West Virginia: Ken Oxendine breaks off a 53-yard touchdown run late in the game to seal a 34-6 win over the Mountaineers.
    1999 vs. Clemson: Defensive end Corey Moore racks up four tackles for loss, including two sacks, forces a fumble that he picks up and returns for a touchdown, and breaks up two passes in the 31-11 win over Clemson.
    2000 vs. West Virginia: André Davis scores three straight touchdowns three different ways (30-yard rush; 64-yard pass; 76-yard punt return) in totaling 273 all-purpose yards as the Hokies roll past West Virginia 48-20.
    2002 vs. Marshall: Kevin Jones and Lee Suggs combine for 324 yards rushing and five touchdowns as the Hokies hold off Byron Leftwich and the No. 16 Thundering Herd, 47-21
    2003 vs. Texas A&M: Playing in the remnants of Hurricane Isabel, Kevin Jones runs for 188 yards and three scores to lift the Hokies to a 35-19 win over Texas A&M in front of a sold-out, and rain-soaked crowd.
    2004 vs. Maryland: Tech’s defense intercepts four passes en route to a 55-3 rout just a few hours after head coach Frank Beamer’s mother, Herma, passed away.
    2006 vs. Clemson: Branden Ore runs for 203 yards and two touchdowns as the Hokies upset No. 10 Clemson.
    2008 vs. Maryland: Darren Evans runs for a school-record 253 yards in the 23-13 win over the Terps.
