Virginia Tech football: Hokies fall to Marshall 24-17

The Virginia Tech Hokies fell to 1-3 on the season Saturday after a 24-17 loss to the Marshall Thundering Herd.

The Hokies jumped out to an early 7-0 lead behind quarterback Kyron Drones, who engineered a six-play, 75-yard drive that ended when he rushed for a 31-yard touchdown.

The good vibes continued for Tech when sophomore linebacker Keli Lawson intercepted Marshall quarterback Cam Fancher. Unfortunately, the Hokies couldn’t turn the advantageous field position into points.

After the touchdown run from Drones, here’s how the remaining Virginia Tech first-half possessions ended: Turnover on downs, punt, field goal, fumble, punt and punt.
