Stay here for updates throughout the game.
Final: Boston College 31, Virginia Tech 21. More insurance to come back.
2:31, Q4: Colton Lichtenberg with a 28-yard discipline goal to make Boston College’s lead 31-21 on Virginia Tech. Should about do it. Hokies will need to win two of the remaining 3 just to end up bowl-eligible.
2:48, Q4: Hokies take the first timeout. Travis Levy keeps running everywhere in the subject, wondering if Virginia Tech is getting worn down defensively in any respect with the injuries. Eagles had just sixty-seven dashing yards at halftime. Now up to 220 on the day.
4:58, Q4: Is that…Is that a touchdown? It is. Nice snatch with the aid of Tre Turner over Boston College’s Brandon Sebastian for a 14-backyard TD. The Hokies cut the Eagles’ lead to 28-21. Of notice: Virginia Tech has all three timeouts left. Boston College to take over at its own 25. Hokies need a brief forestall.
5:34, Q4: Ryan Willis again in after a near interception.
8:34, Q4: Quincy Patterson into the sport after Ryan Willis takes a tough hit. Some applause from the group has faded considerably.
8:51, Q4: Given the dismal display on offense, that 1-backyard Travis Levy TD is probably the dagger. Boston College goes up 28-14.
10:47, Q4: Turnover on downs as Ryan Willis’ bypass to Hezekiah Grimsley falls incomplete. She was tipped through Boston College’s Isaiah McDuffie. Eagles now riding in Hokies territory. Think it’s safe to say Virginia Tech is within the hazard region, given the amount of time left and the shortage of offensive productiveness.
13:08, Q4: Norm Wood of the Daily Press points out that with a loss these days, the Hokies could have their first three-game dropping streak since 1995. It would be the first 3-game home-dropping streak in a single season on account of 1992.
14:22, Q4: The offense appears to have reverted to what it changed into for an awful lot of the Georgia Tech recreation. Reminder to Hokies lovers: They can lose these days in the closing three and win the ACC Coastal. That appears wild. However, it is genuine. I’m not sure I’d have much self-belief in them doing that, but it is nevertheless workable, given how wacky this season has been.
End of the third sector: Boston College 21, Virginia Tech 14.
0: 43, Q3: Brian Johnson’s forty-six-yard area goal is huge left. Eighth immediately forces Virginia Tech to come up empty. Boston College, with the ball, returned on their very own 28. The Hokies are unable to capitalize at the fourth-down prevent.
2:10, Q3: Four punts and two turnovers throughout the closing six drives for Virginia Tech. No Bueno.
3:35, Q3: Some images from Matt Gentry of the first half of movement, including a pleasing shot of Damon Hazelton’s touchdown, seize.
3:58, Q3: Two plays after the interception, Boston College is in the end zone. Anthony Brown hits Korab Idrizi over the center for a 22-backyard touchdown. Eagles in the front 21-14.
4:15, Q3: Ryan Willis’ skip was intercepted by Brandon Sebastian. Bounced off the arms of Damon Hazelton. Review confirms the call and gives Boston College the ball inside the crimson sector.
4 55, Q3: Not that Boston College always sports a Big 12 offense; however, I have been inspired by Virginia Tech’s defensive attempts these days. Hokies have been without Dylan Rivers, Rashard Ashby, Bryce Watts, Xavier Burke, and Jarrod Hewitt quite a lot all game, then spurts without Houshun Gaines and Khalil Ladler as nicely. With all that, the Eagles have simply 14 points and 223 yards. Not too shabby.
6:35, Q3: That’s the third directly three-and-out for Virginia Tech. It’s reminiscent of the offense shutting off last week in opposition to Georgia Tech. It’s not perfect, with Boston College finding new lifestyles right here. Eagles take over on the Hokies 43.
7:37, Q3: After having sixty-seven yards of offense on the remaining six drives, it takes Boston College just five plays and 1 forty-four to move 70 yards for a TD. Travis Levy in the end quarter from 29 yards out. A.J. Dillon with a 13-backyard run earlier than that. Eagles have tied it up right here at 14-all.
9:21, Q3: Hokies cross 3-and-out after the fumble. Boston College needs a spark, having racked up only 67 yards on its final six drives.
10: 53, Q3: Big wreck for Virginia Tech. Boston College QB Anthony Brown fumbles, and Divine Deablo scoops it up. It could be a needed jolt for the Hokies here as they take over at their own 35.
12:15, Q3: Ryan Willis is back at quarterback for Virginia Tech, so all seems well there. However, both groups go three-and-out to start the half. A running into the kicker name offers Boston College a new existence. Houston Gaines even tried to assist him in pleading his case.
Some halftime observations. Containing A.J. Dillon became a massive priority for Virginia Tech, and the Hokies have succeeded. He has 57 yards on the ground. However, 54 of those came in the first zone. (It is important to observe that he hasn’t been 100 percent fitness-wise for some time.) Boston College had simply 20 yards as a crew within the 2nd area.
Ryan Willis has been sharp. He’s 16 of nineteen for 212 yards and 2 TDs. He’s additionally run for 19 yards. The Hokies are out-gaining the Eagles 245-126 and averaging 6.3 yards according to play.
Halftime: Virginia Tech 14, Boston College 7.
0: eleven, Q2: Just one play for Hendon Hooker, as a snap sails over his head. Looked like some bad timing at the whole line’s element. Snap appeared past due. Boston College recovers the loose ball.
0:17, Q2: Ryan Willis takes a massive hit from Boston College’s Will Harris. He’s slow to arise but ultimately jogs off the sector. So, for at the least a play or to cease the half-off, it is Hendon Hooker time.
2:08, Q2: After all that…A thud. Willis forced out the pocket and floated a bypass closer to Eric Kumah. It truly is nearly intercepted. Turnover on downs, as the Eagles take over at their very own 31 past due inside the half of.
