Virginia Tech's offense matures under pressure, while defense faces more injury issues
It had been a while since Virginia Tech could say it was in a spot as unnerving as Saturday’s 10-0 deficit in the second quarter at Wake Forest. Perhaps the worst part for Tech was the fact there was no indication it was going to get any better.
Tech (6-1 overall, 2-1 ACC) hadn’t done much of anything offensively in the first quarter, as evidenced by the fact it had eight yards on 12 plays. The last time Tech trailed by double digits and bounced back to win was Nov. 4 last season when it fell behind 14-0 against Georgia Tech early in the second quarter and recovered for a 28-21 victory.
From Tech running back David Wilson’s perspective, the early deficit against Wake Forest was more self-inflicted than anything else.
