MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia survived No. 15 Virginia Tech’s furious rally from a 20-point deficit to beat the Hokies 27-21.
Jarret Doege threw two touchdown passes and Leddie Brown rushed for 161 yards and a score for the Mountaineers, who built a 27-7 lead midway through the third quarter.
Virginia Tech’s Braxton Burmeister threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Holston with 3:10 left and the Hokies got the ball back on an interception.
But Burmeister threw incomplete on fourth-and-goal from the 3. It was one of three Virginia Tech drives that stalled inside the West Virginia 10 and the Hokies came away with no points.
