The Volleyball team managed what the football team couldn’t. They beat Boston College. 3-0 on their final regular season home game.

They have four tough ACC games on the road to finish up the regular season. Virginia, BC(again), Syracuse, and then a season finale at Clemson.
The men’s soccer ACC Tournament Bid ended today with a 3-0 defeat by UNC. They still expect to get an NCAA Tournament bid, but the quarter final elimination from the ACC Tournament has to be disappointing.

The Hokies defeated Liberty in a special charity exhibition game. That raised over $36,000 for hurricane relief. That’s pretty special and a credit to both squads and fan bases. The people who are still struggling to dig out, mop up, and rebuild their lives will appreciate it greatly.
"This is what brands @LibertyU. We have a team of students that are leaving now to go support relief efforts. I just think it is unique & I am glad our community would come and support it."— Liberty Men’s Basketball (@LibertyMBB) November 4, 2018

All things aside, a game is a game, and Tech needed the scrimmage.

The defeat at home, on Homecoming, by Boston College was a bitter pill for lots of folks to swallow, but Treadmill Horse puts the game and the issues into some perspective.
For those calling for coaches heads: this team is playing their backup QB, was missing SEVEN defensive starters in the first half and lost FIVE expected starters from last year's defense. Calm down.— Treadmill Horse (@treadmillhorse) November 3, 2018
Gobbler Country Will have more to say over the next few days, and this time we will get some pictures up. It was a beautiful Fall day for football and lots of them turned out great even if the game was disappointing.
