Frosh QB Williams gets start for ODU at No. 13 Virginia Tech

There wasn't almost the explosion of points like last week against East Carolina, but for what the matchup called for as a tuneup to next week's upcoming football mega-showdown with Clemson, Virginia Tech got the job done Saturday. An interception forced by cornerback Divine Deablo quickly turned into a touchdown for the Hokies, but they made it interesting early.

Meantime, Virginia Tech polishes off its first unbeaten non-conference slate since 2011.

"Happy we found a way to win the game. We just took that as a challenge". "It's sort of hard to keep it under wraps for now".

After a slow start Saturday, things fell into place nicely against ODU. "We're trying to be in the ranks of the No. 1 defense in the land, the best defense Coach Foster has ever had".

By then, Jackson and the Hokies had removed all suspense. ODU had only 149 yards of offense. "So that's good for us as a whole", Peoples said.

Virginia Tech: RB Travon McMillian.

Quarterback Josh Jackson went 20 for 30 for 298 yards and three touchdowns but also threw his first career pick. He's averaging 139 receiving yards per game.

But it was Peoples who really got Tech in gear.

Virginia Tech would pull away in the second half and cruise to a 38-0 victory. Virginia Tech's mission is simple - rush the passer, blitz him and mix up coverages to make sure the rookie is as uncomfortable as possible.

Old Dominion's freshman quarterback Steven Williams escaped the Hokies pressure much of the day, but was limited to just 8 completions, as ODU committed 2 turnovers.
