Most Virginia Tech fans had Saturday’s game against the No. 5 Florida State Seminoles circled on their calendars as a loss heading into the season. After the Hokies dropped three consecutive games in September, the only question was by how many touchdowns Virginia Tech would lose.
It certainly looked like it would be ugly early, as the ‘Noles jumped out to a 22-0 lead, and the VT looked shellshocked and overmatched. However, the Hokies slowly crawled back into the game, making it a one-score game in the third quarter.
Unfortunately, that was as close as it would get, and the more talented Seminoles pulled away for a 39-17 win.
