  Jalen Holston rushed for 99 yards and a career-high three touchdowns and Virginia Tech snapped a seven-game losing streak by surprising Liberty 23-22 on Saturday. The Hokies' defense, maligned during the lengthy losing skid, came up with two big stops in the final minutes to preserve the one-point lead. They forced an incomplete pass by Liberty quarterback Kaidon Salter to get the ball back near midfield, then forced Johnathan Bennett to lose a fumble on the Flames' next possession. Holston picked up a key first down that allowed the Hokies (3-8) to salt the final minute away. Virginia Tech quarterback Grant Wells completed 14 of 20 passes for 148 yards. Liberty (8-3) rotated two quarterbacks - Bennett and Salter - with mixed results. Bennett led the only offensive touchdown drive on his 15-yard touchdown run, and Salter threw for 119 yards on 12-of-18 passing. Holston's second touchdown run gave the Hokies a 17-7 lead that lasted for 14 seconds. Shedro Louis, playing one week after attending his father's funeral in Immokalee, Florida, returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. Nick Brown converted on a 47-yard field goal before halftime to tie the game at 17. Holston converted on his third rushing touchdown with 7:46 remaining that gave the Hokies the game-winning score. - Virginia Tech/AP College Football

  Grant Wells threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns to lead Virginia Tech to a 27-7 victory over Wofford on Saturday. Wells completed 26 of 35 passes and the defense for the Hokies (2-1) dominated throughout, handing the Terriers (0-3) their 13th consecutive loss. Virginia Tech put the game away with 17 second-quarter points, which was more than enough against a Wofford offense that had not scored this season until Nathan Walker's 3-yard touchdown run with 9:34 left in the game. The Hokies' second-quarter touchdowns came on a 1-yard run by Jalen Holston and an 11-yard pass from Wells to Jadan Blue. Wells later added a 27-yard touchdown pass to Bryce Duke. Wells, who threw four interceptions in Virginia Tech's season-opening loss to Old Dominion, has not thrown an interception in the Hokies' past two games. Wofford, which has been outscored 84-7 this season, ventured into Virginia Tech territory once and finished with just 199 yards of offense. - Virginia Tech/AP College Football

  Grant Wells threw for 140 yards and a touchdown to lift Virginia Tech to a 27-10 victory over Boston College on Saturday. The Hokies (1-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) also got a strong performance from their defense, holding the Eagles (0-2, 0-1 ACC) to 155 yards and sacking BC quarterback Phil Jurkovec six times. The win marked the first for first-year Virginia Tech head coach Brent Pry, a former Hokie graduate assistant in the mid-1990s.

Virginia Tech cornerback Armani Chatman intercepted Jurkovec on the second play of the game to set up Jalen Holston's 1-yard run that gave the Hokies a lead they would not relinquish. BC cut Virginia Tech's lead to 17-10 in the third quarter on a 17-yard touchdown pass from Jurkovec to Jaden Williams, but the Hokies immediately answered, scoring on a 2-yard pass from Wells to Kaleb Smith for a two-touchdown advantage. Jurkovec finished with 135 yards passing to lead BC. - Virginia Tech/AP College Football

  Virginia Tech coach Brent Pry announced Wednesday that tight end Benji Gosnell will miss the 2022 season. "He's got a bright future here," Pry said. Pry said the injury wasn't related to the torn ACL and MCL Gosnell suffered as a senior at Carroll County High School, but declined to provide any other specifics. That injury kept the tight end sidelined throughout spring camp and made him a strong candidate to redshirt this season. Tech signed two other tight ends in the 2022 class - Harrison Saint Germain and Dae'Quan Wright - to complement veterans Drake De Iuliis and Nick Gallo. - Roanoke Times

  Virginia Tech wide receiver Dallan Wright suffered a season-ending injury during fall camp. Coach Brent Pry announced the injury after the team's practice on Wednesday and told reporters the receiver had surgery earlier this week. "We wish him the best, he was really having a nice camp," Pry said. "I'm excited about his future. He's in great spirits. Obviously our medical team is taking great care of him. He's on the road recovery." Wright didn't participate in the two practices the media were allowed to see portions of last week and didn't attend fan day.

The injury comes at a receivers position that was already low on scholarship players. Wright's injury leaves the Hokies with nine scholarship receivers, a number that includes two true freshmen (Tucker Holloway and Xayvion Bradshaw) and former running back Cole Beck, who spent last year away from football. Wright, a 6-foot-1, 176-pounder from South Carolina, was a three-star prospect out of Saluda High School and a late addition to the 2020 signing class. - Roanoke Times
