Virginia Tech collected a third consecutive victory with a 14-0 victory over Navy in Annapolis.  It’s a good thing this one wasn’t on TV, because it was ugly…it was only 7-0 Hokies until a late Dwayne Thomas touchdown with 1:55 remaining.  

Unfortunately, the channel that hosted all past Tech games in their entirety (@hokietapes) was shut down by YouTube recently, so there is no full-game video available online.  However, thanks to the generosity of a Tech fan, I got the game (and all 1995 games) on DVD so I was able to watch it all the way through.  Below I’ve included a link for highlights posted on another site.

To make this series more immersive, I recommend watching the video before reading my article.  If you pretend like this is actually 1995, this will be a lot more fun.

Like all articles in this series, I’ve written the article as if we were currently living 1995.  I imagine this is what I’d have written had I been writing day-after articles back in 1995.
