Virginia Tech beat West Virginia 27-0 in 1995 to set up a huge showdown with Syracuse. Unlike some other games in 1995, this one was never close. The Hokies led 17-0 at halftime and coasted to the victory.
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.
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.
Here’s a link to the Box Score.
Virginia Tech went on the road and hammered West Virginia 27-0 on Saturday. With a 6-2 record, the Hokies could lose out and still be bowl eligible, but with Temple still on the schedule, they aren’t going to lose out. At worst, this is a 7-4 football team.
But it could also be so much more than a 7-4 football team. If the Hokies beat Syracuse next weekend, and assuming they also beat Temple, Virginia Tech will at the very least be Co-Big East Champions at the end of the season. A Bowl Alliance bid is not out of the realm of possibility, depending on what happens with Miami. A major bowl would never pick the Hokies over the Hurricanes, but if Tech wins the Big East outright, or if Miami goes on probation, then there is a chance that you could be spending New Year’s in New Orleans or Miami.
