Tech Decade: Hokies' Biggest Win of the Aughts

New, 3 comments

The 00s are almost over and its time to decide the best moments and players from the last 10 seasons. Every day this week you readers will decide your favorite game, win, offensive and defensive player and team from those seasons.

Today you decide what the Hokies' biggest win of the 00s was. Here are the nominees:

2003: Virginia Tech 31, Miami 7 - The Hokies took down No. 2 Miami in Blacksburg, making the Canes the highest ranked team the Hokies have ever taken down. I'll always remember the sign a fan held up on the field after the game: "We're not going to the Sugar Bowl, and neither are U."

2005: Virginia Tech 34, West Virginia 17 - This win looks much better in retrospect. The Hokies beat their rival in Morgantown. It would be the only loss West Virginia suffered in the 2005 season.

2007: Virginia Tech 40, Florida State 21 - Tech scored 20 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to give Frank Beamer his first win over Bobby Bowden and exercise a lot of demons against the team with the spear on its helmets.

2008: Virginia Tech 20, Cincinnati 7 - The Hokies won their first BCS game and gave the ACC its first BCS win since 2000.
