The Hokies (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) learned before the game that their hopes of playing in the league championship game were dashed when Duke beat North Carolina 27-25 to win the Coastal Division, but they didn't let it dampen their enthusiasm for beating the Cavaliers for the 14th time in 15 games. The Cavaliers (2-10, 0-8) lost for the 18th time in their last 22 games overall dating to last season, and used the same recipe that has plagued them throughout. They forced two turnovers, but scored no points off either, and squandered a late offensive series when Greyson Lambert threw an interception.
-Trey Edmunds (Dan River H.S.) broke his tibia at the end of a run in the 4th quarter. He'll have surgery Sunday at 8 a.m. and will miss four to five months. As a result he will not play in Tech's bowl game.
-UVa has lost 9 straight games this season and ten straight in the season.
-UVa is 6-20 in its last 26 games.
-VT will now await to see which bowl game it will play in. The bowl game announcements will take place Sunday December 8th.
