BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Tyrod Taylor, Ryan Williams and No. 5 Virginia Tech's swarming defense made sure the Hokies' regular season losing streak against Boston College ended.
Taylor threw two early touchdown passes, Williams ran for 159 yards and a TD and the Hokies rolled 48-14 against the Eagles.
The victory ended a three-game regular season skid by Virginia Tech (5-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) against Boston College (4-2, 2-2).
The Eagles' 25-year-old freshman quarterback, David Shinskie, had said he welcomed the chance to play at sold-out Lane Stadium, but that didn't last long. He was hit the second time he dropped back and finished the first half 0-for-9 with two interceptions and his team trailing 34-0.
At halftime, Virginia Tech had 293 yards, and the Eagles had 3.
