Hokies Hold Off Heels

Virginia Tech continues their dominance in the month of November since joining the ACC in 2004.

With the Hokies 24-21 Thursday night over the North Carolina Tar Heels, Virginia Tech is now 26-2 in the month of November as a member of the ACC.

It was a heck of a rally by North Carolina but it came up short.

Here are the highlights from Blacksburg, VA. (Thanks ESPN)

It was also Virginia Tech's 10th win of the season. The Hokies have won 10 or more games for eight straight seasons. Only Miami (1985-92),Texas 2001-09 and Florida State with a modern era record 14 consecutive 10-win seasons from 1987-2000 have put together streaks of double digit wins more than the Hokies.

“I think that’s special,” Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer said in a post game press conference. “I think we’re the only team in the country that has as many straight 10-win seasons. I’ve got a good organization. I’ve got good coaches, and we’ve got good players. They’re not up and down. I’ve been fortunate to have good coaches and good players over the years, and you don’t win that many by having bad coaches and bad players.”

Virginia Tech can clinch the ACC Coastal Divsion if in-state rival Virginia losses to Florida State in Tallahassee on Saturday. Otherwise its a winner-take-all game between the Hokies and Wahoos next week.
