In the first quarter, Bryan Randall pitches it off to Eddie Royal on the option reverse. Royal gets the first touchdown of his career on the 11 yard run and the Hokies led it 7-nothing, 3 and a half minutes in.
Tech struck again on the opening play of the second quarter. Cedric Humes steps outside and goes 29 yards for 6 more to make it 14-nothing.
Less than three minutes later, Randall found Richard Johnson over the middle on a 32 yard pass play, giving Tech a first and goal inside the one.
Justin Hamilton did the rest from there and the Hokies widened the lead to 21 with 10 and a half minutes to go in the first half.
The Hokies finished the second quarter in Royal fashion. Randall eluded the rush and hit Royal on 35 yard strike. It was 28-nothing at halftime.
Tech scored 5 more times in the second half. Randall's two yard toss to Shawn Kinzer made it 35-zip.

Ferrum is celebrating its 50th year of football in 2004, but the visitors were doing some celebrating of their own.

Former Friday Football Extra player of the Week Todd Woods, out of Radford, hits Brent Kickliter in the back of the endzone. He gets his foot down before getting stripped. Emory takes a 7-to-6 lead. Woods was just getting warmed up in the shotgun as he fires to his right and finds Eastern Montgomery product Brennan Stewart on the slant-in. He takes it in for the score and the Wasps get the 14-to-6 lead. Ferrum would finally buckle down and make life tough on Woods. This pass to the near side is picked off by preseason all-American Darren Venable. The senior from Covington helped turn the momentum in the Panthers' favor. And the Panthers offense behind quarterback Jermaine Pitts would turn it up after halftime.
