ACC Championship Game, Virginia Tech Vs. Florida State: Hokies And Noles Trade Touchdowns

After Florida St. Seminoles RB Ty Jones ran in a two-yard touchdown to cap a 68-yard drive, Virginia Tech Hokies QB Tyrod Taylor responded with a 19-yard pass to Jarrett Boykin. The Hokies traveled 91 yards in 13 plays, the second-longest drive in ACC Championship Game history.

FSU QB E.J. Manuel completed three straight passes on the Noles scoring drive, of 6, 21, and 34 yards. Taylor completed five throws on the Hokies drive, the longest a 28-yarder to Danny Coale. Taylor has been effective in the pocket, avoiding a Noles pass rush that has led the nation in sacks for almost the entire season.

The Hokies have outgained FSU 183 yards to 128, and are up on in the turnover battle. Manuel has 122 total yards, while VPI RB Darren Evans has a game-high 60 yards rushing, leading the Hokies’ 100 yards on the ground. FSU WR Taiwan Easterling leads all receivers with 56 yards.
