Interception Dooms Cavs; No Bowl for 5-7 UVa

Saturday November 29, 2008

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Dustin Keys kicked a 28-yard field goal with 6:37 to play and offense-challenged Virginia Tech earned the opportunity to defend its Atlantic Coast Conference championship next weekend with a 17-14 victory against Virginia on Saturday.

The Hokies (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) sealed the victory when Dorian Porch intercepted Marc Verica in the end zone with 2:15 to play. Virginia forced a punt with 1:51 to play, but it was downed at the 13 with 1:38 left and the Cavaliers lost yards thereafter.

Virginia (5-7, 3-5), which needed to win to qualify for a bowl game, lost in spite of the sometimes dazzling debut of Vic Hall at quarterback. The 5-foot-9 Hall, one of the nation's most productive high school quarterbacks before being switched to cornerback at Virginia, ran for 109 yards and two long touchdowns as a surprise starter, but Virginia did little else.
