Hokies extend streaks with 24-20 win over ’Hoos

Michael Brewer’s 9-yard touchdown pass to Bucky Hodges with 1:48 left was the game-winning score, as Virginia Tech knocked off Virginia 24-20 in the latest Commonwealth Clash. The Cavaliers drove to the Tech 36 on their final possession, but a sack by Tech’s Ken Ekanem ended the threat, giving the Hokies their 11th straight win in the series, and more importantly, their sixth win of the season. Tech is now bowl eligible for the 22nd straight season. The Hokies got a special teams score when C.J. Reavis blocked a punt and Hodges recovered it in the end zone. J.C. Coleman paced Tech offensively with 118 yards rushing. Chase Williams had 12 tackles and Ekanem had two sacks. The Hokies now wait for the Dec. 7 announcement of their bowl destination.
