CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Tyrod Taylor hit Marcus Davis with a
pair of third-quarter touchdown passes to help No. 16 Virginia Tech
beat North Carolina 26-10 on Saturday.
Taylor threw for 249 yards while the defense locked down the Tar
Heels after halftime, helping the Hokies (8-2, 6-0 Atlantic Coast
Conference) improve to 4-0 in Chapel Hill since joining the league
in 2004.
Virginia Tech entered Saturday with a chance to wrap up the
ACC's Coastal Division title for the fourth time in six seasons,
but Miami's easy win at Georgia Tech earlier in the day delayed the
Hokies' coronation. Virginia Tech travels to Miami next weekend and
needs to win one of its final two games to wrap up a berth in the
league championship game in Charlotte on Dec. 4.
As for the Tar Heels (6-4, 3-3), their slim chances of winning
the division evaporated in a mash of miscues and missed chances.
