Virginia Tech Pounds Boston College, Headed Back To Miami

Justin CocchiolaCorrespondent IDecember 7, 2008

The Virginia Tech Hokies came out and punched the Boston College Eagles right in the mouth, and the Eagles never recovered.  The Hokies got off to a quick 14-0 lead, on the quick moving legs of Tyrod Taylor, who had two rushing touchdowns.

Tech was close to going up by three scores in the first half until a pass from Taylor was tipped and intercepted.  The defense allowed a big play on the drive, but it turned into a turnover for BC as Victor "Macho" Harris forced a fumble, and Cam Martin recovered it in the endzone.

However, the Eagles got on the board thanks to a long screen pass from Dominique Davis to Montel Harris that setup the touchdown pass Davis would later throw to Rich Gunnell.

Davis didn't have a very good day, completing 17 of 43 passes for 263 yards.  Most of his passing yards came on two plays, but he did throw a touchdown pass.  However, he threw two picks to a stingy Hokie defense and couldn't make enough plays down the stretch to keep his team in it.

Darren Evans had a very nice day rushing the ball on the ground carrying the ball 31 times for 114 yards and a touchdown.  Evans did fumble twice, but the defense was able to limit the damage.

The Hokies sealed the afternoon with an Orion Martin fumble return for a touchdown, which locked up the Hokies second straight ACC Championship.  The final score was Virginia Tech 30, Boston College 12, in a game that surprised many.

The Orange Bowl match-up will be announced later tonight.
