"We're dressing 10 true freshmen and 15 redshirt freshmen," Virginia Tech head football coach Frank Beamer said. "It's a little bit scary ... We lost a couple kids from last year, but we are very impressed with our freshman class."

ECU has possession. 2nd Qtr, 5:39 on the clock.

ECU may well score.
VT 14; ECU 7
Very sloppy game, both sides.
Thanks, I forgot the game was on. Just turned it on here, 16-13, but we just got a long gain and VT is at the 6 yard line 1st and goal.
