After another slow start on Saturday, the Virginia Tech Hokies got going midway through second quarter and never looked back in defeating the Bowling Green Falcons 37-0 in Blacksburg.
Fortunately for the Hokies, for the first time this season, they had a strong running game. The Hokies ran for 246 yards on 43 carries with three rushing touchdowns.
Four different players accounted for at least 45 rushing yards each.

Bud Foster’s group was beaten and embarrassed in Pittsburgh last week but rebounded Saturday with a stellar performance in limiting Bowling Green to 266 total yards.
In last week’s column, there were more losers than winners. But what about this week?
