Blacksburg, VA (AP) - David Wilson returned a kickoff 90 yards
for a touchdown with 2:23 to play and No. 20 Virginia Tech held on
to beat Georgia Tech 28-21 on Thursday night.

Wilson's return came on the kickoff right after the Yellow
Jackets tied it, allowing the Hokies (7-2, 5-0 ACC) to overcame a
sloppy effort and remain in control of their fate in the ACC's
Coastal Division. It was Virginia Tech's seventh consecutive
victory.

The Yellow Jackets (5-4, 3-3), played the second half without
quarterback Joshua Nesbitt, who was injured late in the first half
trying to make a tackle after throwing an interception at Virginia
Tech's 1. The injury was to his right forearm, the school said, and
came after he led one scoring drive, then ran 71 yards for another
touchdown.
