After starting the game off with a scoring drive to take the lead, the Blue Devils saw fate take a cruel turn as the Hokies responded with 45 unanswered points over the next two quarters. The Devils turned the ball over five times, including two fumbles on kick-offs, leaving Virginia Tech with great field position.

Despite their backs being against the wall for much of the game, the defense played well throughout the game.

Offensively, Cedric Dargan finished with 30 carries for 138 yards, however starting QB Mike Schneider fell victim to the injury bug and will miss the next three weeks with a abdominal strain.
