Hokies Fall Short on 3rd Down and ACC Championship Against Maryland

Posted: Updated:


Maryland ended Virginia Tech football's hopes of playing for an ACC Championship Saturday as they topped the Hokies 27-24 on senior day.

Virginia Tech came into the match up knowing that if they beat the Terps and Virginia next weekend, and if Duke lost one of its three remaining games, they'd win the Coastal Division. 

Unfortunately for the Hokies, that won't be the case.

Virginia Tech's biggest issue was not being able to finish on offense going 4-16 on third down. 

Head coach Frank Beamer (7-4, 4-3) said, "They did a good job defensively. They kept us off balance and dropping, bringing pressure, they did a good job. You've gotta give them credit too."

Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas had two touchdowns and 210 yards passing. The senior added, "Maryland did a good job. They were pretty much right on everything we were about to do. They made plays when we dropped it shallow. They were able to come up and make plays when we were just short of the line. They did a good job of covering all day."
