Position made the Virginia Tech game

After star quarterback Jerod Evans unexpectedly declared for the NFL Draft, the Hokies were preparing for a huge drop with a redshirt freshman under center.

Former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer, who will help with the coin toss, spoke with NCAA.com on the renewal of the rivalry. The final play of the game was rather ugly, two penalties going against West Virginia to go along with the incompletion spelled the end of the game for the Mountaineers.

Jackson connected on 15 of 26 attempts for 235 and a touchdown while running 11 times for 101 yards and a score while Grier made good on 31 of 53 passes for 371 yards and three touchdowns.

Next, Slye. Seems like Slye has been kicking for Tech for a hundred years.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Jackson set up the go-ahead touchdown with a 46-yard keeper straight up the middle after fooling the defense by pulling the ball out of a jet sweep read play.

Either goes through, and the last-minute WVU drive that ended in the red zone is meaningless. "It was just, good luck this season".

Still, Grier had plenty of plays left in him - a 60-yard touchdown pass to Jennings early in the fourth quarter tied the game again.

The game continued to back and forth over the final 30 minutes as West Virginia, which plays host to East Carolina at noon next Saturday in Morgantown, drove to the Tech 15 as time ran out. The other was caught by junior wideout Gary Jennings, who set career highs in both catches (13) and yards (189). Notable games this weekend include some great match-ups to open the 2017 season such as MI vs. Florida and Florida State vs Alabama. I guess we were right in recruiting him because it looked to me like he's a really good player.

"You'll have some big plays on our side of the ball, they might have some big plays but you have to just fight it out throughout the whole game".

MI defense takes big bite out of Gators
Saturday's performance against MI wasn't just bad; it might be the offensive low point of head coach Jim McElwain's tenure. Harbaugh is an expert at getting his players to overachieve and to play consistently well. "And that was disappointing".

The Black Diamond Trophy is back on the line as 22nd-ranked West Virginia battles No. 21 Virginia Tech in a season-opening affair at FedExField in Landover, Maryland. "Now, he's going to have to be able to do it in six days".

Jackson said he planned to use Monday - a day with no classes at Tech - to immerse himself in DE film, studying its defensive schemes, personnel and tendencies. "He played with an attitude and wanted to show we made a mistake". To do that after taking almost two years off and to do it against a Bud Foster Virginia Tech defense that will probably be as good as any WVU will see this year is even more fantastic. "Obviously, we would have liked to have a two-score (difference) there in the end, but we didn't".

On Thursday, former Rock Hill Northwestern QB Mason Rudolph threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns and proved that his Sports Illustrated cover in the preseason - and the talk of a Heisman trophy run and possibly top 5 National Football League draft pick - wasn't misplaced talk.

After the Mountaineers tied the game on a field goal by Mike Molina that bounced off the goal post, the Hokies immediately regained the lead.

Twice in the second half Slye missed field goals that would have extended Tech's lead to 10.

Justin Fuente is in his second season leading the Hokies.

Virginia Tech was aided much of the game by having better field position.

Even with the quarterbacks, the start was all about defense, as Virginia Tech took a narrow 10-7 lead into the half.
