Virginia Tech's Ford makes tough catch

Jerod Evans' deep 26-yard pass to Isaiah Ford bounces around between the Tech WR and a Pitt defender before Ford finally gains control. It led to a field goal that gave the Hokies a 9-0 lead on ESPN.

This is how poorly Pitt played in the first quarter: two turnovers, zero first downs, six total plays, 12 total yards and four penalties. The Panthers defense has bailed the offense out, as Virginia Tech leads 6-0.

Hokies intercept Pittsburgh's Peterman

Nathan Peterman's pass is intercepted by Virginia Tech's Mook Reynolds and returned for one yard to the Pitt 30-yard line. The 25th-ranked Hokies lead 6-0 on ESPN.

Could these last two possessions come back and hurt Virginia Tech? The Hokies forced a fumble and an interception, but settled for just a field goal as a result. Virginia Tech has dominated the plays and time of possession in the first quarter but only leads 6-0.

Hokies recover Pitt fumble on kickoff

After Virginia Tech took a 3-0 lead on the opening drive, Pittsburgh fumbles on the kickoff and the Hokies recover. They had to settle for a field goal, expanding the lead to 6-0.

Pitt returner Quadree Henderson made a rare mistake on a kickoff return, fumbling the ball away. The player who caused it? Freshman Divine Deablo, wearing Frank Beamer's No. 25 -- an honor bestowed on the special teams player of the week. The Hokies had great field position but were stuffed by one of the best run defenses in the country and settled for a field goal.

Virginia Tech's trip to Pittsburgh is a sneaky important game in the ACC Coastal. The Hokies are 3-1 in conference play and currently have a 44 percent chance to win the division, according to our Football Power Index. A win in Pittsburgh would increase Virginia Tech's chances to win the Coastal to about 68 percent, but a loss would put the North Carolina in the driver's seat.

Jesus "Bobo" Wilson, Florida State's second leading receiver, is out for Saturday's game against Clemson with a foot injury. Receiver has been a trouble spot for FSU so losing the senior hurts. It's a blow to the Seminoles' special teams, too, as Wilson is fourth nationally in punt return average.

Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst discusses gearing up for another big game against Nebraska, facing friend Mike Riley and how Natrell Jamerson could be used if he plays this week. No. 11 Wisconsin plays host to No. 7 Nebraska at 7 p.m. ET Saturday in a huge Big Ten West showdown.

Just how bad is FSU at finishing drives in the first half? Against the Power 5, there isn't a Power 5 team better at avoiding three-and-out drives, but they're 54th in percentage of drives ending in touchdowns. They're 28th in percentage of possible yards gained, too, which means they're moving the ball effectively until reaching opponent territory in the first two quarters of games. Clemson's defense is second in touchdowns per drive in the first half.
