JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Virginia Tech 's two-quarterback system worked to perfection on one drive, just enough to get the Hokies to the Orange Bowl.
Sean Glennon threw three touchdown passes, Tech's defense finally stopped Matt Ryan and the sixth-ranked Hokies beat No. 12 Boston College 30-16 in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game Saturday.
Ryan overshadowed Glennon and Tyrod Taylor most of the game, but the Tech duo put together a game-winning drive that showed exactly why the coaching staff decided to play both of them.
Taylor gained 31 yards on a quarterback draw, then Glennon capped an 84-yard drive with a 24-yard strike to Eddie Royal with 7:12 remaining.
The Hokies' defense did the rest.
Vince Hall intercepted Ryan's fourth-down, desperation pass near the goal line with 2:16 to play. The Eagles (10-3) forced a punt, but Ryan threw another pick. Xavier Adibi returned it 40 yards for a score with 11 seconds to play.
Oranges flew on the field as the Hokies (11-2) celebrated their fifth consecutive victory and their first win in two trips to the ACC championship game.
Glennon was named the game's Most Valuable Player after finishing 18-of-27 for 174 yards with the three touchdowns and an interception.
Ryan was 33-of-52 for 305 yards.
The Eagles, who used Ryan's two late TD drives to beat Tech 14-10 earlier this season, will probably play in the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando.
