Commonwealth Cup: knocked down streak - Cavs cut Hokies, claim coastal title | GRAPE

The wait is over for the Coastal Division's challenger in the ACC Championship Game on December 7 in Charlotte.

The Cavaliers finished a streak of 15 straight losses in the Commonwealth Cup with more than 475 total yards and three touchdowns from quarterback Bryce Perkins. While Perkins is more unsafe when he tucks the ball to run, Hooker has also had success running and similar success would free things up for their other offensive weapons.

With Perkins at the controls, Virginia moved the ball just far enough to get into range for kicker Brian Delaney. Later in the first, Perkins added another rushing touchdown, this time from 67 yards, and the Hokies looked like they were in big trouble.

Tech opened the second half with a quick score of 5 plays and 75 yards.

Regardless of what happens in this game, this year marks another improvement in Virginia's goal of winning the Coastal division.

Johnson made two field goals.

The 2019 staff is this system's first to win 9 video games within the common season since 2007 and simply the third to take action since 1990.

After Delaney's kick, Virginia Tech got the ball back with 1:23 to go down by three.

UVA went 75 yards and Perkins had 70 of them, all on the ground.

The teams exchanged field goals to reach 30-30. Perkins "touchdown also ended the Hokies" nine-quarter bleached streak.

"How fitting after a missed extra point early that I thought was going to haunt us", Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall said. Perkins accomplished the feat at the end of the first quarter with five carries for 137 yards (27.4 yards per carry). Whip linebacker Chamarri Conner easily got under the ball for interception without a Virginia catcher nearby. He also made a 26-yard field goal.

Tech had to settle for a 21-yard field goal by Brian Johnson to put the 6-3 with 3:26 remaining in the first quarter. The situation that Tech was placed in at the end, we knew they were going to throw and that allowed us to actually make the right calls versus what they were going to do. The Hokies had a new series of takedowns from the Virginia 7-yard line, but were unsuccessful in three consecutive attempts. Robinson's 28 and 35-yard returns were the longest winnings of half of the Hokies.
