Virginia Tech is still in the A-C-C title race after knocking Virginia out of B-C-S bowl contention.
(------------------)
[SUPER=03-Blacksburg/Yesterday;]


Bryan Randall had a pair of second half touchdown passes as the Hokies beat the Cavs 24 to 10.
Tech can win the league title *AND* the Bowl Championship Series berth that goes with it - by winning next week at ninth ranked Miami.
Tech is 6 and 1 in league play, while the Cavaliers lost their chance for a share of the league title by falling to 5 and 3.
Tech slowed the Cavaliers' running game in the second half.
We have a complete wrap of the game coming up in sports, but first, before the Hokies and 'Hoos faced off on the field, the parking lot was where the action was.
Jeremy Butterfield has more on the fans trading friendly verbal jabs while getting hyped for the game.

[SUPER=03-Blacksburg/Yesterday;]


Virginia announced after its 24 to 10 loss to Virginia Tech yesterday that it will NOT accept any bid to a bowl game falling between December 13th and 21st because of exams.
The move takes the 'Hoos out of contention for the Tangerine Bowl on December 21st and leaves its bowl destination up in the air.
School president John Casteen the Third says he's disappointed the bowl schedule conflicts with the university's exam period.
But he says he thinks its important for U-V-A to - quote - "send the right message to its students".
