5 overreactions from loss to Virginia Tech

First DUI charge against WVU WR Marcus Simms dismissed; still suspended for Virginia Tech game

"They have some good players", said Holgorsen in explaining Virginia Tech's production.

No. 21 Virginia Tech found their answers on offense in a 31-24 victory over No. 22 West Virginia on Sunday night at FedExField. Brothers Terrell and Tremaine Edmunds with also be key cogs in the defense playing safety and linebacker respectively. "We knew it was going to be a dogfight throughout it all".

For VT, redshirt freshman QB Josh Jackson will make his debut for the Hokies, marking the second straight year that Tech has opened the season with a signal-caller starting his first major college football game.

The Mountaineers and Hokies joined the Big East together in 1991.

Gary Jennings set a career-high with 13 receptions for 189 yards in Sunday night's season-opening loss to Virginia Tech. Grier will then proceed to finish off the Hokies with a big second half which will include at least two touchdown passes, both going to his new favorite target in Sills V. The Mountaineers pull away late to get the Black Diamond Trophy back to Morgantown.

"Unfortunately we came up a little short", West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen said.

"He gave us a chance to win". His father, Fred Jackson, spent 23 years on the staff at MI and is now a high school coach.

Virginia Tech (1-0) will be back in action at home against FCS opponent DE next Saturday. And the Hokies can still win with it. Don't think so. Cam Phillips played up to his usual fantastic level, and Sean Savoy, a true freshman, embraced the moment.

Grier, meanwhile, completed 31 of 53 passes for 371 yards and three touchdowns, leading West Virginia to 592 yards of total offense.

Two of Grier's touchdown passes went to Sills, who finished with nine receptions for 94 yards.

"The quarterback was good". Notable games this weekend include some great match-ups to open the 2017 season such as MI vs. Florida and Florida State vs Alabama.

Young receivers hold up well - Were there any drops by the Hokies' receivers in this game? We also made some big-time stops. The score was tied in the second and fourth.

"I told our guys, 'Don't hang your head". "We've got a lot of things to build off of. I got too far out", Holgorsen said.

Even with the quarterbacks, the start was all about defense, as Virginia Tech took a narrow 10-7 lead into the half.

Jackson was a ideal 3-for-3 for 40 yards on the go-ahead possession.

The game was sealed when Travon McMillan had a three-yard touchdown run with just over six minutes remaining in regulation.

Grier overcame some early struggles to orchestrate an impressive touchdown drive in the second quarter.

In the first meeting between the contentious border rivals since 2005, Virginia Tech players and fans began celebrating wildly after the final snap, when Mountaineers quarterback Will Grier threw incomplete as the clock expired. I saw enough from the end zone press box Sunday to be convinced that 2017 could be a year to remember for the Mountaineers.

After Virginia Tech's Joey Slye missed a field goal, Grier marched the Mountaineers down the field to tie the game at 17 on a David Sills V touchdown.

Before Slye's field goal, the Hokies had a first-and-goal from the 1-yard line but squandered the prime scoring opportunity with a negative-yardage run and a false start on consecutive plays.
