Va. Tech blanks BC 19-0 to rebound from bad start
BOSTON — Virginia Tech cornerback Jayron Hosley intercepted Dave Shinskie in the end zone, and linebacker Davon Morgan stopped the Boston College quarterback at the goal line as time ran out in the first half to help the Hokies shut out the Eagles 19-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams on Saturday.
Tyrod Taylor completed 16 of 21 passes for 237 yards and Chris Hazley kicked four field goals for the Hokies (2-2, 1-0 ACC). It was Virginia Tech’s first shutout since 2006 and BC’s first at home since 1998.
Shinskie completed 11 of 25 passes for 130 yards, and he was replaced by Mike Marscovetra after turning the ball over on a fumble and an interception in the second half. Shinskie also made a questionable decision at the end of the first that cost BC (2-1, 0-1) a field goal try.
