Hokies survive in OT

Cody Journell kicked a 17-yard field goal in overtime and No. 16 Virginia Tech defeated Georgia Tech 20-17 on Monday night in Blacksburg, Va. Georgia Tech got the ball first in overtime, but quarterback Tevin Washington threw an interception. Washington’s 10-yard touchdown pass with 44 seconds left in regulation had given the Yellow Jackets a 17-14 lead. The Hokies moved downfield quickly, and Journell, who had earlier missed from 38 yards, made a 41-yarder as time expired. In overtime, the Hokies got runs of 6 and 18 yards on their first two plays from Michael Holmes after the intercepion before Journell came back out and kept the Hokies from another crushing loss in a big early game. – Associated Press
