Virginia Tech Football Avoids Losing Season and Tops Rutgers 13-10

Posted: Updated:

The Hokie's avoided being the first team since 1992 to have a losing season as they took out Rutgers 13-10 at the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando.

Virginia Tech trailed 10-3 in the fourth quarter when Logan Thomas hit Corey Fuller with a game-tying 21-yard touchdown pass.

The game went into overtime and Cody Journell connected on a 22-yard field goal to give Tech the lead.

Rutgers would try to come back and match it - but their field goal sailed wide.

The Hokie's finished above .500 for the 20th year in a row and improved to 7-6 on the season.

Virginia Tech's first game of the 2013 season is against Alabama on August 31st at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
