For the second time this season, the Virginia Tech Hokies went into the state of North Carolina with a lackluster effort and escaped with a less than impressive victory. Much like the East Carolina game on September 10th, the Hokies' win against Duke had Tech fans sweating up until the final kneel downs.
The offense sputtered it's way to a mere fourteen points despite gaining 444 yards and possessing the ball for 32:30. Thankfully for Frank Beamer and the Hokies, the defense made some key plays at some clutch moments and allowed Tech to survive a mediocre performance.
Luckily for Virginia Tech, they will enjoy a bye this week before travelling to Atlanta to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in a Thursday night prime
