    East Carolina vs. Virginia Tech

    Final Score: at East Carolina 35, Virginia Tech 28

    1. Down early after two big turnovers, East Carolina roared back with 28 straight points with Blake Kemp running for a score and hitting Trevon Brown for an 11-yard score. And then it was all about backup James Summers, who found Isaiah Jones for a 26-yard touchdown in the third quarter and ran for a 41-yard touchdown to keep one step ahead of the Hokies.

    2. Virginia Tech got up 14-0 in the first on a one-yard Trey Edmunds run and a seven-yard Ryan Malleck catch, but the D couldn’t slow down the Pirate offense. Even so, Tech stayed alive with short touchdown runs from Sam Rogers and Motley to pull within seven.

    3. Virginia Tech had one late shot, but the drive stalled as a desperation throw fell short.
