MONDAY HUDDLE: Was Virginia Tech-UNC game best of season in college football?
Offensive lineman Silas Dzansi #60 of the Virginia Tech Hokies celebrates following the 6 overtime victory against the North Carolina Tar Heels. No game reached that point this season until North Carolina and Virginia Tech did so on Saturday. Virginia Tech ultimately prevailed in the sixth overtime, stopping North Carolina and then scoring on a 2-point conversion run by Quincy Patterson to win the thrilling contest. It was the longest game in ACC history and might have been the best game in college football so far this year, even if there weren't playoff implications or ranked teams participating. Virginia is a half-game ahead of Pittsburgh and a full game ahead of Duke, North Carolina and Virginia Tech, but the Cavaliers have already beaten Pittsburgh and Duke and have the tiebreaker over both those teams.
