Virginia Tech pitched a shutout for the second week in a row on Saturday as they defeated the Pittsburgh Panthers 28-0 at a wet Lane Stadium. It was the Hokies' sixth win in their last seven games, and fifth in a row against an ACC team.

The defense stole the show once again in what will be defensive coordinator Bud Foster's final game in Blacksburg, with his unit only allowing 177 yards of total offense. Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett struggled to get in a groove through the air, going 10 of 26 for 103 yards and a lost fumble that was returned for a touchdown by defensive tackle Norell Pollard.

Minus a fumble that did not result in points, Tech quarterback Hendon Hooker played another solid game under center, going 10 of 13 for 153 yards and two touchdowns.
