5-6 Hokies must now beat Virginia to make a bowl game.

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia Tech dropped a rough one Saturday losing 6-3 to Wake Forest in double overtime.

Frankly, if you didn't see this game you didn't miss much of anything. The game was scoreless going into overtime. Let that sink in a moment. Through 60 minutes of football, neither team could put points on the board despite Wake Forest having three field goal attempts in regulation.

The Hokies (5-6, 2-5 ACC) were unable to accomplish much of anything either, committing three turnovers and converting on just 3-of-15 third downs.

Quarterback Michael Brewer struggled completing just 15-of-28 passes for 126 yards and an interception.

The lone bright spot on offense was J.C. Coleman who put together his second consecutive strong performance with 18 carries for 98 yards.

On defense, Tech struggled at times to stop a Wake Forest (3-8, 1-6 ACC) rushing attack that entered the game last in the nation. Wake gained just 74 yards on the ground but that's more than double the Deacs' average coming in (34.1 YPG).

Freshman kicker Mike weaver was the goat for much of the day, missing those three field goals in regulation from inside 40 yards. He finally found his groove in overtime hitting the first kick from 49-yards and the game winner from 39.

The Hokies are now officially in panic mode with a 5-6 record entering next week's Battle for the Commonwealth Cup with rival Virginia.

Tech must win to avoid losing to UVa for the first time in a decade, ending the consecutive bowl streak (21) and having the first losing season since 1992.

The Hokies and Cavaliers meet at 8 p.m. the Friday after Thanksgiving in Blacksburg.
