  • Just call this one a great escape for Tech

    Last week was petty larceny. This was a Brink's job. In broad daylight, in front of 59,800 eyewitnesses, Virginia Tech heisted an ACC football game Saturday from North Carolina and returned home to Blacksburg atop the conference's Coastal Division....
  • Tough Tyrod shows Tech can pass, too

    Safety Larry Asante blitzed untouched off the left edge and planted Tyrod Taylor just as he uncorked the pass. Didn't matter. Taylor threw a 34-yard strike to Jarrett Boykin. End Zach Potter beat Ed Wang's block and punished Taylor just as he released...
  • Offense culprit in Tech's loss

    Absent a timeout, Virginia Tech had 68 seconds to travel 71 yards. It was a daunting challenge for the most potent offense. For an inept attack it was impossible. Virginia Tech lost 28-23 at Boston College on Saturday night despite forcing five...
  • 'Macho' Harris picking his way into Tech elite

    Cornerback Victor Harris' 55-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter Saturday night against Boston College put him in elite company in Virginia Tech's record book. It was his fourth interception in Tech's past four games. Safety...
  • Glennon likely back sooner

    Virginia Tech's training staff will have its hands full in the next week-and-a-half as it tries works to rehabilitate quarterbacks Sean Glennon and Tyrod Taylor, but trainer Mike Goforth was more optimistic about Glennon coming back faster. Taylor's...
  • Offense is better, thanks to Evans

    November college football dawned at Virginia Tech as it usually does these days: with a Hokies' victory. Thursday night's victim was Maryland, 23-13, in an odd game Tech attempted to give away with special-team gaffes during the third quarter. Seasons...
  • Top five athletes to remember

    1. Dyrell Roberts, Smithfield He was a marked man from the start, but defenses still couldn't bring him down. All Roberts did was rush for 2,256 yards, pass for 257 yards, catch passes for 148 yards and score 38 touchdowns in 10 games. Oh, he had a 40-...
  • ACC All Access: Hush-hush Tech mini-scrimmage finishes Wednesday's spring practice

    ACC All Access: Hush-hush Tech mini-scrimmage finishes Wednesday's spring practice
    Unless Tech's sports information department was lying to the small gathering of reporters that showed up for post-practice interviews today (and I don't think for one second there was any fibbing going on), the Hokies held a mini-scrimmage to close out...
  • Offense pours it on its critics

    Offense pours it on its critics
    The last time Virginia Tech piled up more than 550 yards of offense in a game, Hokies offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring was a broken man — tears streaming down his face, crouching in a corner outside the visitors' locker room of the Carrier...
  • MAKE OR BREAK

    MAKE  OR BREAK
    They lost to Alabama and waxed Marshall. What else to expect from Virginia Tech's football team? Alabama's defense is ruder than Kanye West, and Marshall hasn't mattered since Byron Leftwich exited in 2002. Plus, the Hokies lost their most reliable...
  • Hokies' miracle stuns Nebraska

    Tyrod Taylor dodged several defenders and then rifled an 11-yard touchdown pass to Dyrell Roberts with 21 seconds left, rallying No. 13 Virginia Tech over No. 19 Nebraska 16-15 Saturday. Taylor, known for his running much more than his passing, completed...
  • Two sandlot plays save inept Hokies offense

    Virginia Tech was 88 yards from the winning touchdown. The Hokies had gained 58 yards on their previous six possessions. Combined! Can you say "dead team walking"? Virginia Tech was 11 yards from the winning touchdown, and Tyrod Taylor was throwing...
