Boston College were beaten at Blacksburg by a score of 40-14 Virginia Tech put on a very impressive performance, especially on the field The Eagles had no answer for quarterback Hendon’s running prowess Hooker and Kansas’ ghost past Khalil Herbert The duo combined over 300 yards on the ground Hooker added three rushing touchdowns to go with a passing touchdown

The biggest scenario, however, has to be the Eagles’ self-inflicted wounds. Coming into the game with just three turnovers in the first four games, the Eagles returned the ball five times (plus one on the lows) in the game, including three in the first half Three fumbles and two interceptions will never make job Virginia Tech has scored four times in those five turnovers, with 70 more penalty yards dooming the Eagles

The game’s first fumble came after a promising start in the game’s first practice Pat Garwo spat out what would be his only report Virginia Tech would turn around and miss a basket, only for Phil Jurkovec to fumble over possession next The Hokies would convert the cart trial this time around

British Columbia looked to shake off those first two mistakes with a nice drive that ended with a catch and run score from Jaelen Gill to take the lead Virginia Tech, however, would immediately respond to this score, and an interception on the Eagles’ next possession meant seven more for the Hokies

Coming out of the half-chance only to be behind 17-7, BC seemed to have devised some key tweaks They forced a quick three and one out, and Hunter Long had a powerful touchdown and a run But from there it was all Tech After the Virginia Tech touchdown that followed, a poor escaped Levy deep into Eagle’s territory resulted in another Tech field goal. A quick three for the Eagles this time around, and Tech quickly walked the field for a score B.C. gathered another solid workout, but returned the ball again, this time on tries at the 14-yard line. from Virginia Tech An errant Jurkovec throw followed by an incomplete pass put this player to rest The Eagle defense actually forced another punt, but eventually a forced throw at Long ricocheted into another interception Hooker capped off a great performance with another quick touchdown

Jurkovec had as large a day gap as he could get, finishing 28/51 for 345 yards He had some very impressive throws throughout the contest, but a lot more mistakes than we’re used to at the end he forced too many throws as the game progressed and showed clear frustration as the game progressed

Jaelen Gill burst onto the stats sheet and was probably the only bright spot of the day, with a number of big catches He finished with 6 receptions, 104 yards and a touchdown David Bailey was able to get into the ground very early in the game, but finished with just 41 yards on 10 carries As the game progressed and the Eagles fell behind, Travis Levy began handling the ball to no avail

The team’s defense was on display in this game They were way too slow and still had issues tackling Hooker and Herbert constantly broke tackles and BC couldn’t adapt good enough at quarterback running plays Defensive strategy seemed right, but execution failed Defense allowed over eight yards per carry, and a total of 350 yards on the ground Hooker only had to throw 111 yards considering the efficiency of the team’s race

Hokies improve to 3-1, while Eagles drop to 3-2 and join Georgia Tech next weekend
