No. 5 Va. Tech breaks regular-season skid to BC
Virginia Tech settled a few scores with Boston College with one of its most complete games in years.
"We haven't had one like this in a while," coach Frank Beamer said after the fifth-ranked Hokies ended a three-game losing to streak against the Eagles with a 48-14 victory Saturday.
Virginia Tech (5-1, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) hounded Boston College 25-year-old freshman quarterback David Shinskie all day and pounded the ball on offense with Ryan Williams and an improving passing game.
Tyrod Taylor threw for two early touchdowns, Williams ran for 159 yards and a touchdown and the Hokies gave defensive coordinator Bud Foster little to complain about for a change.
