#16 Virginia Tech rolls after sluggish start at ECU, wins 64-17
ECU and #16 Virginia Tech were tied at 17 approaching the two-minute mark of the first half. It was all Hokies from there, and then some, in what turned into a 64-17 rout.
A 34-point outburst in the third was in the offing, with the Hokies racking up 314 yards of offense in the quarter, which ended with Virginia Tech up 57-17.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Josh Jackson threw for four touchdowns in the third-quarter outburst, on his way to a five-TD, 372-yard day through the air, as the Hokies racked up 675 yards of total offense.
ECU (0-3) led 17-7 after one quarter, getting a pair of touchdown passes from Gardner Minshew, but that was it for the Pirates for the day.
Virginia Tech senior wideout Cam Phillips had a monster day, catching 14 balls for 189 yards and three touchdowns.
