ACC rivals couldn’t contain their raucous laughter as Virginia Tech was upset by Old Dominion for the second time since 2018.
Somewhere along the way, Virginia Tech got really bad at football. And their ACC rivals think that’s hilarious.
On Friday night the Hokies got their 2022 season off on the wrong foot when they lost to Old Dominion.
This wasn’t exactly an earth-shattering result. ODU upset Virginia Tech in 2018 as well. That was under Justin Fuente, who was fired in 2021.
Now the Hokies have to come to terms with the fact that new head coach Brent Pry has an uphill battle to turn things around.
Rivals in the ACC won’t let them forget it.
Rival ACC fans loved seeing Virginia Tech lose to Old Dominion
Virginia Tech fans didn’t sound much more positive.
The upset created a prime example to make all the elevator jokes possible.
Virginia Tech coaches were stuck in an elevator on their way back to the press box at half time and the game had to be delayed.
The Hokies probably wished that would be the worst setback of the night but it clearly wasn’t. Though they tied the game 10-10 after halftime and then took a 17-10 lead before the third quarter was over.
They had trouble finishing though. The Monarchs scored the last 10 points of the game including the game-winning touchdown with 33 seconds left.
It was a home game for ODU, so fans stormed the field in the aftermath to celebrate their big win.
The Hokies will have to try to bounce back next week against Boston College. Losing their “easy” game doesn’t bode well for the rest of the season though.
