The Virginia Tech Hokies were in control of their game on Saturday against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons after John Love’s 37-yard field goal made it 10-0 with 4:31 remaining in the second quarter.
But as we know, in football, things can change in a hurry. And they did when Wake Forest running back Demond Claiborne took the following kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, and all of a sudden, we had a game.
How would the Hokies respond?
On first and 10 from the 25-yard line, quarterback Kyron Drones finds wide receiver Jaylin Lane for a 75-yard touchdown to put the Hokies back up by 10.

Earlier in the game, cornerback Derrick Canteen showed some vintage Virginia Tech defense with this interception.
Just a terrific all-around play from Canteen, from the coverage to the catch.
Speaking of vintage Virginia Tech defense. How about some Beamerball?
The Hokies faked a punt late in the third quarter, and defensive end Cole Nelson ran the ball 18 yards for a first down. It’s the longest run of the day for the Hokies thus far.
A fun day in Blacksburg so far — and the Hokies are currently winning.
