Virginia Tech Hokies Fall to the West Virginia Mountaineers

Justyn Mutts kept his promise and was down on the field in a maroon and orange set of coveralls to lead the stadium in cheers prior to the iconic Virginia Tech Hokies “Enter Sandman” entrance. The sold-out crowd at Lane stadium was raucous, proud, and loudly singing along!

The West Virginia Mountaineers received the kick-off to start the game. The Fighting Gobbler defense was not interested in seeing what JT Daniels and the WVU offense could do and forced the punt after a three-and-out. After a booming Peter Moore punt pinned the Mountaineers on their two-yard line, West Virginia drove down the field, helped significantly by four VT defensive penalties and multiple missed tackles, to hit a 23-yard field goal.
