Kyron Drones played a very good second half
Down 28-7 in the third quarter, Virginia Tech’s offense started moving the ball better and quarterback Kyron Drones threw a lot of good balls. He did throw two interceptions, but one was called back for a Wolfpack penalty and the other stood, although it did look like the ball was moving as the defender was going to the ground, but it was never reviewed.
Regardless, after a first half that saw the Hokies gain just 95 total yards, 47 on a touchdown run from Xayvion Turner-Bradshaw, it was a better final 30 minutes and an encouraging one. Drones finished the game 17-for-30 passing for 225 yards and three touchdown passes. He threw two to Da’Quan Felton and one to Stephen Gosnell.
Drones also rushed for 51 yards, which was a team-high. Virginia Tech found the end zone four times in the second half, but the problem was on the other side of the ball where the defense couldn’t get any stops.
It has to be encouraging for the offense to finish off the game the way they did heading into the Virginia game. They are going to need their whole unit to start off better against the Cavaliers.
