The Virginia Tech Hokies (1-2) trail the Marshall Thundering Herd (2-0) 17-10 at halftime in Huntington.
Things started well for the Hokies, who jumped out to a 7-0 lead when quarterback Kyron Drones had a 31-yard touchdown run.
VT’s defense actually started the game well, forcing a first-quarter turnover when linebacker Keli Lawson picked off Marshall QB Cam Fincher. Unfortunately, Tech’s offense couldn’t turn the turnover into points.
Marshall’s offense finally got going in the second quarter when Fancher found wide receiver DeMarcus Harris for a 12-yard touchdown to tie things up. It was a nine-play, 78-yard drive for the Thundering Herd.
