No. 13 Virginia Tech blanks Monarchs

No. 13 Virginia Tech blanks Monarchs”

Tech hosts Clemson Saturday night in a rematch of last year's ACC title game. "It's sort of hard to keep it under wraps for now". The Hokies are coming of a 64-point game against East Carolina and looking to finish their nonconference slate unbeaten. But they eventually settled in and cruised to their second shutout win of the season.

"We're halfway there", said outside linebacker Mook Reynolds, who had five tackles.

The Monarchs got the ball across midfield once - barely.

By then, Jackson and the Hokies had removed all suspense.

ODU freshman quarterback Steven Williams Jr., in his first career start, was 8-for-26 passing for 85 yards and an interception. "We have guys capable of being good football players". And we still haven't today.

The Hokies piled up 582 yards of total offense, 271 on the ground. That's 1,257 yards the last two weeks for Virginia Tech, the most in back-to-back games since at least 1987, as far back as the school's accessible game-by-game records go. The junior has scored a touchdown in six consecutive games and has scored 20 in his career. He's averaging 139 receiving yards per game.

"It was really nice getting a rhythm going".

Josh Jackson threw for three touchdowns and Steven Peoples scored three Saturday, leading No. 13 Virginia Tech past Old Dominion 38-0. He rushed for 62 yards and had 73 through the air, accounting for three Virginia Tech touchdowns.

While ODU has a bye next week, the Hokies say "hello" to the defending national champions.
