Virginia Tech might have drawn first blood against Georgia Tech on Thursday, but it was Georgia Tech who got the last laugh. Virginia Tech ended up on the wrong side of a painful 28-49 walloping at Georgia Tech's hands. It was supposed to be a close match, and Virginia Tech were supposed to come out on top, but neither of those things ended up happening.

Virginia Tech's loss came about despite a quality game from Ryan Willis, who passed for 201 yards and 2 touchdowns. Additional support came from defensive powerhouse Khalil Ladler, who racked up 11 tackles.

Tobias Oliver, who rushed for 203 yards and 3 touchdowns, was a major factor in Georgia Tech's success.

The defeat dropped Virginia Tech's record to 4-3. The win got Georgia Tech back to even at 4-4.

Virginia Tech will look to defend their home turf next week against Boston College at 3:45 p.m. Virginia Tech's defense better steel itself: Boston College are averaging 39.57 points per game. Georgia Tech will be staying on the road, facing off against North Carolina. North Carolina took a loss in their last matchup and are no doubt out to reverse Georgia Tech's good fortune.
