Virginia Tech dominated Virginia in a highly anticipated rivalry game, finishing with a final score of 55-17. This win marked the 18th time in the last 19 meetings that Virginia Tech defeated their rival, and it solidified their position in the ACC conference.
The game featured an exceptional performance by Virginia Tech quarterback Kyron Drones, who threw three touchdown passes and led the team to a substantial lead at halftime. The Hokies also scored on two long runs, securing their commanding lead throughout the game.
In a bizarre twist, Virginia elected to activate the sprinklers during the post-game festivities, while the Virginia Tech squad snapped a collective snapshot at Scott Stadium. Although perceived as a vengeful and petty maneuver, it failed to extinguish the enthusiasm displayed by the players and fans of Virginia Tech.
The match concluded a triumphant sophomore year for head coach Brent Pry who, after the win, led his team onto the field for a celebratory photograph.

Virginia Tech football triumphed over the University of Virginia in the Commonwealth Cup on November 25th, clinching a 55-17 victory at Scott Stadium. The Hokies displayed superior performances on offense, defense, and special teams. Notably, the score marked the highest number of points Virginia allowed against Tech in the series that dates back to 1895. Virginia concluded their second season under head coach Tony Elliott with a 3-9 overall record, finishing 2-6 in ACC play.
Following the game, Virginia Tech fans rushed onto the field to celebrate the team's victory, which made them bowl-eligible at 6-6 for the first time under head coach Brent Pry's leadership. Pry led his team to midfield at Scott Stadium for a photo with the Commonwealth Cup, and both Virginia Tech fans and players enjoyed the spray of water from the sprinklers that suddenly turned on.
The University of Virginia's football team was displeased with the postgame festivities. Their annoyance was compounded when the sprinklers unexpectedly turned on during the team photo. Virginia Tech's triumph in the Commonwealth Cup was especially satisfying for the Hokies because it marked Pry's first victory over Virginia.
