  Hendon Hooker threw for 153 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 25 Virginia Tech to a 28-0 victory over Pittsburgh on Saturday. Hooker threw touchdown passes to Tre Turner and Damon Hazelton, and Virginia Tech's defense scored on a fumble return, as the Hokies (8-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) notched their sixth win in their past seven games. "I can't say enough good things about our guys," Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente said. "I felt that way about them early in the year, too, though. I really did. I'm enjoying every moment with them. I think they're a special group of young men. They've been through special circumstances and stuck together."

The Virginia Tech win sets up a showdown next weekend with rival Virginia, with the victor claiming the ACC's Coastal Division and an ACC championship game berth on Dec. 7. Pittsburgh (7-4, 4-3) finished with a season-low 177 yards. Kenny Pickett completed 10 of 26 for 103 yards to lead the Panthers. "Disappointing performance, obviously, today," Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi said. "A lot of things I saw -- too many penalties, 0 for 3 on fourth downs ... We don't make any plays. Just a disappointing performance. "I give Virginia Tech a lot of props for what they did out there today. Bud Foster's (Virginia Tech defensive coordinator) defense came to play, I can guarantee you that...It's hard to win when you can't get in the end zone. We had some field position at times, but just didn't do anything with it." - Virginia Tech/AP College Football
