The Hokies overcame numerous penalties, the absence of a key offensive lineman and the ejection of a defensive leader to rebound from a surprising loss to Florida State on the same field in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game a month ago. “This is a much better feeling than when we were here last time,” tight end Jeff Kind said. “We wanted to go out on a better note than what we showed when we played Florida State. We had a lot of guys come in and step up. That’s what good teams will do to get back on the winning track.” JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Virginia Tech had a much better experience in the River City this time. Marcus Vick threw two touchdown passes, Cedric Humes ran for 113 yards and a score and No. 12 Virginia Tech rallied to beat 15th-ranked Louisville, 35-24, in the Gator Bowl on Monday. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonVirginia Tech (11-2) scored on three consecutive possessions in the second half and turned a 17-10 deficit into a 28-24 lead. James Anderson sealed the victory when he intercepted Hunter Cantwell’s pass and returned it 39 yards for a touchdown with 5:04 to play. “That was a big play,” Anderson said. “It came at the right time and I was in the right spot. We got good pressure on the quarterback, he threw it right to me and I just made a play.” Vick, who threw for 203 yards, made several plays while directing the comeback, which snapped a five-game winning streak for Louisville (9-3). last_img
