BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) It was a crazy finish that only started with a Hail Mary.
Brian Johnson kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime and Virginia Tech pulled out the wildest victory in its 100 meetings with Virginia, 34-31 on Friday night. The Hokies won their 15th in a row in the series and kept alive their hopes for a 26th consecutive bowl appearance.
"The whole game started with Dalton's catch," said defensive end Ricky Walker, speaking of a throw deep downfield that Dalton Keene took away from Virginia cornerback Bryce Hall. "From there on it was `I can't believe this is happening' and guys making plays, and that fumble was pretty wild."
