The win also means needed rest for tailback Mike Imoh. After scoring the first two touchdowns of the game, Imoh injured his left hamstring and had to leave the game. Today, head trainer Mike Goforth told us that the injury will be treated cautiously and that they really won't make any decisions on his availability until next Monday. Also, tonight the Hokies have admitted that they committed a secondary NCAA rules violation for providing athletes with a way to purchase creatine. Several athletes said strength coach Mike Gentry helped them obtain the muscle supplement at discounted prices. Tech's review confirmed that the violations were inadvertent and no major sanctions are expected from the NCAA.

Saving pennies really does pay off.

Just ask Eugene Sukie. The 78-year old Ohio man started collecting pennies 34-years ago and just recently decided to cash them in. His 575 cigar boxes contain 28-thousand rolls or 1-point-four million coins. The pennies weigh more than three-and-a-half tons -- and are worth about 11-thousand dollars. Sukie says he's had help building up his collection.

Sukie's collection is expected to set a new world record. He says he guesses his collecting could be considered a hobby. He adds that he also has more than 2-thousand Hot Wheels cars, all still in their original packaging.
