Jackson, VT 'one-up' Grier, WVU

Holgorsen came to West Virginia in 2011 with a reputation of cultivating prolific passers but found that quick-strike touchdown drives meant his defense would spend more time on the field and get exhausted. "We had a chance to win all the way until the end".

After a slow start to the game offensively by both teams, each side picked up steam in the second half.

Rish Equipment Company, a producer of machinery for coal, construction and other industries, came to an agreement with the athletic directors of WVU and VA Tech in 1997 to establish a scholarship fund for the student athletes.

1 - Sunday's game will be the FIRST time West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen and Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente have met on the gridiron, and the first time both coaches will vie for the Black Diamond Trophy. The junior hauled in 13 passes for 189 yards, both game highs.

Jennings' 60-yard catch and run with 12:37 remaining tied the score at 24.

Jackson finished with 235 yards passing and 106 yards rushing and two total touchdowns; Grier finished with 371 yards passing and three touchdowns. "We've got a lot of things to build off of".

They'll also have incredible safety Kyzir White, the latest in a long line of aggressive Mountaineer defensive backs who are bound for the NFL.

Grier looked poised against a top 25 national team on a nationally televised game on a night when his team and Virginia Tech were the only show in town. He scored on a 5-yard run with 27 seconds in the first half to take a 10-7 lead and hit Cam Phillips with a 32-yard pass in the third quarter for a one-play, 16-second scoring drive to take a 24-17 lead. The Hokies rushed the field after their defense held the Mountaineers out of the end zone on two last plays from the 15, and their fans screamed along to Metallica's "Enter Sandman" to celebrate.

Hezbollah leader defends evacuation of IS fighters
The US views Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and US President Donald Trump has condemned Hezbollah as a menace. The coalition said it had not hit the convoy, but "cratered" a road in east Syria and bombed IS vehicles nearby.

It was the first meeting between the two teams since 2005 and the two teams battled back and forth throughout the contest, but the Mountaineers fell short in its comeback attempt on the game's final possession. "Everything that we thought he was he is".

West Virginia's new quarterback was just as impressive. Through the first three, the Mountaineers managed only 19 yards, with only two of those coming on the ground. Ford pushed the lead to 24-3 lead with a 2-yard plunge at the 11:38 mark of the second quarter.

At the end of the day, though, it was Bud Foster's famous defense that sealed the victory for the Hokies.

An eight-yard completion to Ka'Raun White moved the chains on fourth down, and an 11-yard pitch and catch to David Sills gave the Mountaineers their first touchdown of the year, and the lead 7-3.

The offseason allowed Crawford to get a better understanding of the game by watching countless videos of opposing defenses. "I have a lot of great memories of some big football games, some important football games".

Virginia Tech answered on the ensuing drive with its best offensive possession of the evening, a four-play, 71-yard drive that took just 1:28 and ended in a 12-yard touchdown run from Deshawn McClease, who broke several tackles on his way to the end zone to give the Hokies a 17-10 advantage.

After the Mountaineers tied the game on a field goal by Mike Molina that bounced off the goal post, the Hokies immediately regained the lead.

End of the third quarter leaves the score at 24-17, Virginia Tech.
