Chestnut Hill, MA (Sports Network) - Tyrod Taylor completed 16-of-21 passes for 237 yards, and the Virginia Tech defense blanked the Boston College Eagles, 19-0 in an ACC showdown at Alumni Stadium.
The Hokies (2-2, 1-0 ACC) managed just six rushing first downs for the game and netted only 2.7 yards per carry as a team.
Montel Harris led BC (2-1, 0-1) with 111 yards on 19 carries. However, quarterback Dave Shinskie had a tough day, completing just 11-of-25 passes for 130 yards and two interceptions.
After a scoreless first quarter, Darren Evans put Virginia Tech on the board first with a three-yard touchdown run to start the second quarter, and the score would remain 7-0 until the second half.
Hokies' kicker Chris Hazley accounted for all of the third-quarter scoring with three field goals (29, 45, 29) in the frame.
Hazley added a 32-yarder in the fourth quarter for the game's final score.
