CollegeFootballNews.com recaps the weekend Duke performance.
It took two plays for Virginia Tech to get on the board with a one-yard Branden Ore touchdown run for all the points needed. The extra point was blocked, but that was the only high point for Duke
, who gained a mere 139 yards of total offense. Eddie Royal returned a punt 58 yards for a touchdown and Sean Glennon threw two touchdown passes on the way to the easy win.
Player of the game ... Virginia Tech QB Sean Glennon completed 15 of 25 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns with an interception.

Whoopty doo. What does it all mean Basil? ... It's all about improving from week to week and figuring out what works and what doesn't. Unfortunately for Duke, there's not a lot to take away from the blowout loss at Virginia Tech. The run defense did a decent job, but there was no running game and QB Thaddeus Lewis played like the young rookie he is. With Virginia struggling in a big way, next week's home date has to be when the offense starts to show some sort of a spark.
