How do you like six overtimes?

The Hokies defeated UNC 43-41 in a 6OT thriller in Blacksburg on Saturday behind an explosive 490 yard offensive outburst. Despite Hendon Hooker's solid first half, the quarterback looked was shaken up prior to the end of the second quarter.

After Ryan Willis was taken out of the game in favor of redshirt freshman quarterback Quincy Patterson II, and he carried Virginia Tech's offense into a thrilling win over the Tar Heels with 128 yards on the ground. Patterson won the game in the sixth overtime off the quarterback keeper up the middle.
