Worst Game Ever: Wake Forest Beats Va. Tech 6-3 in 2 OT's

We post this only because it's a contender for the worst College Football game ever.

Wake Forest beat Virginia Tech 6-3 in 2 overtimes Saturday in an ACC Football game that may have redefined the term "Winning Ugly".

We should also add at the end of regulation, the game was tied at 0-0.

And while the game only featured 4 turnovers, 3 by Va.Tech, it also only featured 488 yards of total offense. Samaje Perine of Oklahoma ran for 427 and accounted for 446 yards by himself in his game.

The only intriguing storyline here, how many missed field goals would be kicked before someone made one. Tech only missed in, by Joey Slye in the 1st OT. Wake's Mike Weaver missed 3.

And while Slye finally made one in the 1st OT, Weaver hit one in each of the OT periods, enough to get the win.

Both the Hokies and the Demon Deacons punted 9 times each, and not a touchdown was scored in a College Football game for the first time since 2005. We should note, neither of the teams in the 2005 game play in an alleged "Power 5 Conference".

Wake coach Dave Clawson said after the game "We put offensive football back 100 years". We say, this brand of football, in this game...was extremely offensive if you actually tried to watch it.

We will spare you the game highlights...mostly because there weren't any and just show you video of the Weaver's game winning kick and the celebration...
