Josh Jackson outplays Will Grier to lead Virginia Tech past West Virginia

Virginia Tech Media Day Football

First, to Jackson. The redshirt freshman, in his first career start, threw for 235 yards and ran for 101, and turned the game around with a 46-yard scamper through the middle of the WVU defense on a read-option play in the fourth quarter, score tied at 24.

West Virginia would quickly move the ball to the Virginia Tech 23-yard line and had appeared to convert a third and one, but after a holding penalty, head coach Dana Holgorsen was flagged on the sideline and the Mountaineers would punt the ball from their own 48-yard line ending a promising drive. "We had a chance to win it up all the way until the end".

UCLA accepted the ball to open the game and started with its best drive of the night, a 12-play, 53-yard march that stalled at the Texas A&M 12-yard line, setting up a J.J.

After forcing the Hokies to another three-and-out, WVU got something going on offense, driving to the Tech 11-yard line on a 33-yard pass from Grier to Ka'Raun White.

Virginia Tech's secondary was particularly disappointing, as Grier shredded a unit that looked dominant on paper in the second half.

"We have thousands of people in the shelters and have left their homes and are waiting for the water to recede", he said. The mayor threatened to impose a mandatory evacuation if not enough of the remaining residents voluntarily left.

The seven-point advantage was short lived due to another big play in the WVU passing game. Inevitably, it took Jackson a little time to get his feet wet, and it took Grier some time to knock the rust off. These two teams have not met since 2005, but they have played some classic games in the past.

Let's be honest, Virginia Tech deserved to win this game.

Following a missed field goal, West Virginia attempted to score on the final possession, but Grier couldn't connect with an open receiver once the Mountaineers got inside the red zone.

Simms only had 95 yards receiving last year, but was expected to start for this year's iteration of the Mountaineers. "Everything that we thought he was he is".

Just a few days after a former Charlotte-area high school star proved he was up to the Heisman-hype, another Charlotte-bred quarterback proved that he was the player everyone remembered him to be.

It wouldn't take long for Virginia Tech to recapture the lead however on a four-play 71-yard drive for their second touchdown of the game.

WVU tied the game at 10 on a Mike Molina field goal that caromed fortuitously off the right upright from 34 yards out. Carroll (Good Counsel High) is among those in store for elevated playing time after Virginia Tech had top wide receivers Isaiah Ford and Bucky Hodges selected in April's National Football League draft.

The Hokies answered back just before halftime, when Josh Jackson found the end zone on the ground from five yards out to cap a eight-play, 47-yard drive that included a pair of third-and-long conversions. But the Hokies defense could be a difference maker in this match-up. We have seen West Virginia run the ball more and more over the last three years and for some reason Crawford only had 13 carries, McKoy with 8. David Sills added nine receptions for 94 yards and had two receiving touchdowns, and National Football League receiver Kevin White's younger brother, senior Ka'Raun White, had four receptions for 74 yards for WVU.

Finally, the defense. This one is supposed to be among the best in the country, and it may get in that direction, but there's still a lot of work to be done. "I have a lot of great memories of some big football games, some important football games".
