Reflections: Hokies Continue Cup Dominance

In so many ways, this was an appropriate game with which to wrap up the regular season.

To close out Virginia Tech’s worst season in 20 years, the Hokies played in front of one of the smallest Lane Stadium crowds in some time, in frigid weather, against a bad football team. The kickoff was in the noon hour, like the majority of Tech’s games this year. Noonish kickoffs on ESPNU and the ACC Network are where the bad games happen – that describes six of VT’s games this season.

It was an ugly, sloppy game, like so many games this year. Logan Thomas was wildly inconsistent, as he has been all season, and the Hokies failed to have a tailback rush for 100 yards, for the eleventh time in twelve games.

The defense played tough, but gave up just enough big plays for VT’s struggling offense to make it a close game.
