vs. Virginia . Nov. 28, 2009
Charlottesville, Va.

. Tailback Ryan Williams finished with a career-high 183 yards rushing and four touchdowns on the day. He scored four touchdowns for the second-straight game, becoming the second player in school history on record to do so. Lee Suggs scored five touchdowns against Central Florida and then four against Virginia a week later in 2000. NOTE THIS IS A CHANGE FROM WHAT WAS ORIGINALLY ANNOUNCED!!!!!

. Williams has scored 20 touchdowns on the season (19 rushing) to set a new ACC freshman touchdown record. The previous record was set by NC State’s T.A. McLendon in 2002 (18 rushing TDs). Williams’ 20 total touchdowns and 17 rushing touchdowns are both the fourth-most in a single season at Tech.

. Williams ends the regular season with 1,538 yards rushing. He will need 110 yards in the bowl game to break the Tech single-season rushing record of 1,647 yards set by Kevin Jones in 2003.

. Williams recorded his ninth 100-yard rushing game of the season, tying the school record (Kevin Jones, 2003).

. Virginia governor Tim Kaine stopped in the locker room to congratulate the team. In his four years as governor, Kaine saw the Hokies win all four games.

. Special teams player Zach Luckett suffered a left knee injury in the first half and will be re-evaluated Sunday with an MRI.

. Danny Coale had a career-high 135 yards receiving on six catches. It’s his first career 100-yard game and marks the third-straight game a Tech receiver has had 100 or more yards.
