Virginia Tech beats Virginia in football

No, I'm not forecasting the outcome of the Nov. 19 contest in Scott Stadium. In fact, I'm just telling you what happened earlier this evening in Klockner Stadium in Charlottesville. Yep, that's right, #12 Virginia Tech's men's soccer team dealt the #5 Hoos their first home loss 2-1 in OT.

What's that you say Cavalier fans? Virginia Tech is just a football school? The Hokies can't compete in the ACC in other sports? Well, don't look now, but the Hokie soccer team has just won it's 9th straight game and will likely vault in the nation's Top 10 on the strength of this win.

No, Virginia Tech does not yet have an all-around athletic program like many of its ACC bretheren, but the success of the soccer team just shows the strides that Virginia Tech is taking towards developing such a program. Certainly that development has been aided by entry into the ACC. While football will always be the top draw for Hokie fans, I have no doubt that within a few years the Hokies will be competing for ACC titles in many other sports too.
