Virginia Tech football: Hokies crush Virginia to retain Commonwealth Cup, become bowl-eligible

The Commonwealth Cup will remain in Blacksburg for another year. The Virginia Tech Hokies crushed the Virginia Cavaliers 55-17 on Saturday to improve to 6-6 (5-3, ACC) and become bowl-eligible.

The Hokies began the game with an excellent drive but it unfortunately ended with only a field goal as a questionable holding penalty stalled Tech’s momentum.

That would be about the only thing that went against the Hokies on Saturday.

After stopping Virginia for a three-and-out on its first drive, Virginia Tech quarterback Kyron Drones went to work. With the Hokies facing a fourth down at the UVA 44-yard line, head coach Brent Pry went for it.
