Leading up to Black Friday's battle for The Commonwealth Cup, I was concerned the Hokies' banged up defense would be a liability against Virginia, in turn jeopardizing Tech's 13-game winning streak. I made peace with the possibility that for the first time in 14 years Tech might actually lose to UVA. Down several starters, I don't think anyone expected the dominant performance Bud Foster's crew put on display. Tech allowed 5 rushing yards; notched 4 sacks; earned 1 giant donut.
To quote Justin Fuente, "Last time I checked, if the other team can't score, they can't win."
It's another in a long line of sensational defensive outings orchestrated by Bud Foster.
A special tip of the cap to VT defensive coordinator @coachfostervt. The Hokies' defense held UVA to under 300 yards for the 12th time in 14 wins in this streak. UVA finished with just 191 yards— Jimmy Robertson (@jrobIHS) November 25, 2017
The Lunch Pail Defense's performance against the Wahoos needs to be properly memorialized. Press play and watch Kurt Benkert's life flash before his eyes.
