UPSET ALERT: Boston College Takes 7-0 Lead Over Virginia Tech

Less than three minutes into the action Boston College – who have yet to record a FBS victory this season – have taken a seven point lead over the twelfth ranked Virginia Tech Hokies in Blacksburg.

The touchdown came on a two-yard run by BC quarterback Chase Rettig, who is 1-1 for 35 yards through the air. The Eagles are 1-5 this season and 0-3 in the ACC. Their only win came against non-FBS school UMass. 

This game still has a long way to go, but it's something to keep an eye on. Boston College entered as three-touchdown underdogs at +21. Virgina Tech is 6-1 on the season with their only loss coming against the undefeated Clemson Tigers, who ranks thirteenth in the nation.

At the time of this update the score is 7-0 Boston College with seven minutes remaining in the first quarter. Virginia Tech has the ball. The game can be followed on ESPN3.
