Duke vs. Virginia Tech: Live updates, score, results, highlights, for Saturday’s NCAAF game

Game Recap

The Virginia Tech Hokies lost to the Duke Blue Devils when the two teams previously met in September of last year, but they didn’t allow Duke the same satisfaction this time around. The Hokies walked away with a 38-31 victory Saturday.

Virginia Tech’s RB Khalil Herbert was on fire, rushing for one TD and 207 yards on 19 carries. Herbert’s longest run was for 60 yards in the fourth quarter. Another playmaker for Virginia Tech was WR Tayvion Robinson, who returned a punt -17 yards to the end zone in the first quarter.

RB Deon Jackson hadn’t helped Duke’s cause all that much against the Virginia Cavaliers last week, but the same can’t be said for this matchup. The losing side was boosted by Jackson, who punched in two rushing touchdowns. That’s the most rushing touchdowns Jackson has had all year.

The win improved Virginia Tech’s record to

Watch Virginia Tech vs Duke Live: NCAA TodaY

Virginia Tech vs Duke Live, The last time Florida rose to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 rankings, its opponent in its next game was South Carolina and the Gators throttled the Gamecocks 44-11 in 2012. Ironically, that was during Will Muschamp’s most successful of three seasons as the UF’s coach. Now with Florida (1-0) ranked No. 3 for the first time since then, the Gators’ opponent is South Carolina again. This time, Muschamp will be on the opposite sideline attempting to direct the Gamecocks to another marquee October upset.


South Carolina (0-1) beat then-No. 3 Georgia on the road in October 2019, giving Muschamp his best victory of an otherwise dismal season that placed him on the hot seat. Guiding his team to another such victory would do wonders for the coach who owns a 26-26 record in the fifth season of his second gig as an

Virginia Tech down 21 players, including top four cornerbacks, vs. Duke

Virginia Tech down 21 players, including top four corners, vs. Duke originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Virginia Tech played without 21 players and two full-time coaches Saturday against Duke, the second-straight week that the Hokies were forced to take the field down a significant chunk of their roster.

The team has dealt with coronavirus-related issues for weeks but didn’t specify whether the inactive players were scratched due to COVID-19. In their season-opening win over NC State last week, the Hokies played without 23 of their players.

Though it had more players suited up Saturday, the losses Virginia Tech sustained — particularly in the secondary — were brutal: Each of their top four cornerbacks (Jermaine Waller, Armani Chatman, Brion Murray and Devin Taylor) as well as starting safety Divine Deablo didn’t play. Waller was out last week but the other four were new scratches.
