Perry Jones ran for 149 of Virginia's 272 yards on the ground and the Cavaliers beat No. 12 Georgia Tech at its own game, 24-21, on Saturday night.

The Cavaliers (4-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) sealed the victory by holding onto the ball for the final 6 minutes, making five first downs to get inside the Yellow Jackets' 5.

But they didn't need to score, and when quarterback Michael Rocco took a knee for a 3-yard loss on the game's final play, thousand of fans surged onto the field at Scott Stadium.

Georgia Tech (6-1, 3-1), off to its best start since 1966, came in with one of the nation's top offenses, but it was held to just two pass completions and a season-low 296 yards by a Virginia defense that made the most of an extra week to prepare for the tricky triple option.
