We played a really talented offensive football team. I'm just really proud of our kids and how they played today. We need to go take care of business today. The Hokies , overcame a halftime deficit, scoring 30 second-half points to beat a ranked team for the first time since last year at then-No. They just continue to battle and block out the noise and work hard and stick together, and it's fun to get to see them reap some benefits.
Deshawn McClease scored touchdowns on back-to-back possessions in the third quarter. His 6-yard touchdown run with remaining in the quarter gave the Hokies a lead - one they never would relinquish. He had 59 of the Hokies' yards rushing. Hooker completed 15 of 23 for yards and rushed for 69 yards. His 7-yard touchdown run with remaining sealed it. Wake Forest quarterback Jamie Newman completed just 16 of 35 passes for yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Kendall Hinton caught eight passes for yards.
We were off in the passing game. Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons are going to have to find a way to run better to keep their defense off the field -- they finished with 63 yards rushing against the Hokies. Finding that running game won't be easy next Saturday with a trip to unbeaten and No. Virginia Tech: The Hokies control their own destiny in the ACC's Coastal Division race and need just one victory in their final three games to become bowl eligible for the 27th consecutive season. Two of their wins this season have come against FCS opponents, which means the Hokies need to get to seven victories to extend the nation's longest active bowl streak.
In all four of Hooker's starts this season since he took over as the starting quarterback, the Hokies have rushed for at least yards, and Saturday, their run game allowed them to control the clock. For just the fourth time this season, they held the ball more than their opponents, finishing with a advantage against the Demon Deacons. It's been crucial and one of a couple things that has helped us.
