Hokies Defeat Hoos

The Virginia Tech Hokies defeated the University of Virginia Cavilers 42-13.

The game was much closer then the score dictated. At halftime, the Hokies were only leading by one point, with a score of 14-13. The team did not really gain momentum until a fumble by the Cavs in the middle of the third quarter.

The Hokies were led by freshman running back Ryan Williams who scored 4 touchdowns and rushed for over 100 yards for the ninth time this season. The Hokies will wait for to see which Bowl Game they will be attending in the upcoming weeks. It will most likely be the Chik-Fil-A Bowl or the Gator Bowl.

The University of Virginia is expected to part ways with Head Coach Al Groh, who has been at the school for the past 9 seasons. Groh, a native son of the university, has suffered losing seasons in 4 of the past 5 years. It will be interesting to see how the university handles the whole situation and who will be Groh's replacement.

UPDATE: Groh was fired by the University, Monday following their 3-9 season.
