The Virginia Tech Hokies fell to 3-2 on the 2021 season after Saturday’s heartbreaking 32-29 loss to the No. 14 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. It was a difficult pill to swallow for Virginia Tech who thought the game was finished when hobbled quarterback Braxton Burmeister scampered 19 yards to give the Hokies a 29-21 lead with 3:55 remaining in the game.

Unfortunately, Virginia Tech’s defense couldn’t contain Notre Dame, allowing two scoring drives in just over three minutes, giving the Fighting Irish a hard-fought road win.
