Here's the scene at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where Cal-USC is about ready to kick off on ESPN.

Virginia Tech survived a late push from Pittsburgh to stay in control of the ACC Coastal Division. The Hokies got an incredible performance from banged up quarterback Jerod Evans (sprained ankle) and their receiving trio Isaiah Ford, Bucky Hodges and Cam Phillips. They should be favored in their final three ACC games against Duke, Georgia Tech and Virginia. If they win them all, they make it to the ACC championship game.

Despite the fact that Cal is playing on a short week and USC is coming off a bye, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said the game falls under the agree-upon scheduling parameters. The Bears played a double-overtime game against Oregon on Friday, which gave them five days in between games. That USC is coming off a bye was not taken into account.

Pitt stays in it with Weah touchdown

Nathan Peterman completes a 7-yard pass to Jester Weah in the end zone for a TD. Pittsburgh cuts Virginia Tech's lead to 39-36 with less than three minutes to play.

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said he's monitoring stadium developments in Inglewood, Las Vegas and Oakland as possible future destinations for the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Ford's catch breaks Virginia Tech record

Isaiah Ford makes history with a school record 23rd receiving touchdown, The catch increased the Hokies' lead over Pitt to 39-29 in the fourth quarter.


Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia Tech started taking advantage of an overmatched Pitt secondary in the second half, launching one pass after another to successful results. Jerod Evans is over 400 yards passing; and for the first time in school history, the Hokies have three 100-yard receivers in the same game. Plus, Isaiah Ford set the new school record for receiving touchdowns with 23.

You don't see that every day

When the rest of the Pitt offensive line blocked left, tackle Ryan O'Neil snuck out to the right and took the end-around handoff into the endzone for the score. It was the second touchdown of the season for the 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman.

The best addition to the Coliseum this season.

Here is a stat that might blow your mind: Pitt offensive lineman Brian O'Neill now has his second touchdown of the season, adding a rushing score against Virginia Tech to the receiving touchdown he had earlier this year. Needless to say, he's the only FBS offensive lineman with multiple touchdowns this year.

Williams muscles in another Hokies TD

Marshawn Williams runs it in from two yards out to increase No. 25 Virginia Tech's lead to 29-21 over Pitt in the final seconds of the third quarter.

Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans returned to the game after sitting out one series and led a touchdown drive, completing three pretty passes to help the Hokies get into the end zone. Evans sprained his ankle earlier in the third quarter but was eager to get back in, and played like the leader his teammates know he is.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans appeared to injure his right leg in the third quarter and was replaced by Brenden Motley on the next series. Evans is on the sideline trying to stay loose, but for now the Hokies are sticking with the backup.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Another difference from Stanford's previous midseason QB change: According to David Shaw, Keller Chryst has a much more expanded knowledge of the playbook now than Kevin Hogan had then. He gave no indication that Stanford might simplify its playbook like it did in 2012.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

David Shaw told me that this is the first time all year Stanford has known Christian McCaffrey and Bryce Love are fully healthy early in the week. Because of that, the Cardinal should be able to utilize both in tandem more against Arizona.

Another Conner TD gives Pitt the lead

James Conner runs up the middle from one yard out to chalk up his third TD of the night and give the Panthers their first lead of the game, 21-16, early in the third quarter.

Thursday Night Football in Los Angeles.

Conner punches in second TD of the night

James Conner takes the handoff and powers up the middle for his second touchdown of the game. No. 25 Virginia Tech leads Pitt 16-14 at halftime.


Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

James Conner has two touchdowns for Pittsburgh, which has climbed back into its game against Virginia Tech at halftime. Though the Hokies have dominated in virtually every category, the one area they will look to improve on in the second half is red-zone offense. They settled for three field goals on their first three trips inside the 20, helping keep the game close.

Hokies build lead with Cunningham TD

Jerod Evans' 11-yard pass connects with Chris Cunningham for a wide open touchdown. Virginia Tech increases its lead to 16-7 with two minutes remaining in the half.


Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Pittsburgh cornerback Phillipie Motley was helped off the field with an apparent leg injury, a blow to an already depleted secondary. Terrish Webb and Avonte Maddox have been injured, so losing another defensive back from a group that's had its share of struggles has to hurt.
