Virginia Tech Hokies Come Back to Tie Purdue: 17-17

It’s been an absolutely insane situation in Blacksburg, today. The game started with a delay of nearly 40 minutes to account for a massive thunderstorm that rolled in. Then the game was halted for 5 and a half hours because of a huge and violent line of thunderstorms that dropped several billion gallons of water on Blacksburg.

The problem was that Tech had already had serious problems with Hudson Card and the Purdue offense and with 5:50 left in the 1st quarter at the delay, the Boilermakers had a 7-0 lead.

After the delay, Tech managed a stop, but couldn’t get any offensive momentum.
