It wasn't pretty, but Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has his 200th career victory. Beamer's No. 11-ranked Hokies had a major battle against East Carolina, but got a fourth-quarter touchdown to hold on for a 17-10 victory in Greendale, N.C. That was the headliner among the early ACC football scores on Saturday.
The game was tied at 10 entering the fourth quarter before Virginia Tech chewed up the block on a 13-play, 89-yard drive that took nearly seven minutes. Josh Oglesby eventually ran it in for a 10-yard touchdown to give the Hokies the lead. East Carolina had two chances after that and even had a sure first down on second and 18 on the final drive that would have put them into Hokies territory, but the wide receiver dropped the ball and the game ended.
