(Newser) – The quarterback in the Georgia Tech jersey threw two TDs for Virginia Tech and ran for a third as the Hokies thumped the Yellow Jackets 27-3 last night, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Sean Glennon was one of four Hokies who lost their uniforms and had to wear borrowed Georgia road shirts, but he threw for 296 yards and a career-best 71-yard touchdown pass.

"It was kind of our night," said Hokies head coach Frank Beamer. "Nothing was going to stop us." Georgia Tech's defense certainly didn't do much stopping, allowing two long touchdown passes and an on-side kick recovery in the loss that ended their chances of repeating as division champs.
