NCAA10 Sim: Hokies 37, Blue Devils 17

Virginia Tech vowed never to take the Duke Blue Devils lightly after a late-game scare in Blacksburg last season. The No. 6 Hokies continued their winning ways in Durham 37-17 Duke1_mediumon the legs of true freshman tailback David Wilson.

Wilson and fellow tailback Ryan Williams split playing time in the first quarter with Williams scoring the first 
touchdown. Williams left the game through the second quarter with a bruised elbow and never returned. Wilson took full advantage scoring two touchdowns of his own.

The surprise score of the game came in the second quarter when quarterback Tyrod Taylor found tight end Sam Wheeler. The catch marked Wheeler's first touchdown reception since the 2007 season opener against East Carolina.

The Hokies never relinquished the lead and continued to add to the score thanks to three field goals in the second half from senior Matt Waldron including a 53-yarder in the third quarter.
