Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina Score Update: Hokies trail 28-20 at halftime

The Virginia Tech Hokies will need to make a second half comeback on Saturday if they're to improve to 2-0 in ACC play. The Hokies currently trail the North Carolina Tar Heels 28-20 at halftime in the ACC battle.

Virginia Tech got the scoring started early in the first quarter, when quarterback Logan Thomas scored on a 13-yard touchdown rush, capping off a four-play, 57-yard drive.

North Carolina didn't take long to respond, as Brooks Abbott returned the ensuing kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown, evening the game at 7-7.

The Tar Heels took a 14-7 lead later in the first quarter, when North Carolina quarterback Bryn Renner rushed for a 4-yard touchdown.

Like the Tar Heels earlier, the Hokies didn't take long to respond. Thomas hooked up with Marcus Davis for a 49-yard touchdown strike, evening the game up at 14-14.

The back-and-forth scoring continued in the second quarter, but with a caveat, as the Tar Heels punched it in the end zone twice, while the Hokies had to settle for two field goals. Consequently, North Carolina takes a 28-20 lead into halftime.

Virginia Tech will need to slow down North Carolina's running game in the second half. The Tar Heels have gained 124 yards on the ground, on just 17 carries.
