The Virginia Tech Hokies made easy work of the Tennessee Volunteers in the annual Chick-fil-A Bowl on Thursday in Atlanta.
The Virginia Tech Hokies had a 17-14 lead at halftime before going on a 20-0 run in the second half to shut down the Tennessee Volunteers.
Tech never trailed in the game and after the opening tie, were tied just one more time in the second quarter before they ran away with the game leaving Lane Kiffin shaking his head wondering what happened.
Freshman Ryan Williams lead the Hokies as he posted 117 yards on 25 carries along with two touchdowns. The night just capped off what has been a stellar season for Williams. The Hokie had 117 yards rushing to become Virginia Tech's single-season rushing leader with 1,655 yards, he also set Atlantic Coast Conference records with 21 rushing touchdowns and 22 total touchdowns this season.
For the Volunteers it was two turnovers that really hurt them as they were converted into 10 points each. The Volunteer's senior running back, Montario Hardesty, had 18 carries for 39 yards and a touchdown, but the Volunteers found themselves outrushed 229-5.
The victory was also significant for the Hokies as this was the first time in school history that they have won back to back bowl games. Last season the Hokies won the Orange Bowl and they finish this season with a 10-3 record.
