BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -Freshman quarterback Tyrod Taylor will get his first start Saturday when No. 18 Virginia Tech plays host to Ohio.
Taylor replaced starter Sean Glennon late in the first half Saturday night in the Hokies' 48-7 loss to No. 2 LSU. Glennon, a junior who started the last 15 games, will be in a backup role.
``This is not a reflection on Sean,'' coach Frank Beamer said in a weekly teleconference with reporters. ``He's put so much into his preparation, and he's such a competitor. We just feel like with this football team and our offense, Tyrod fits our personnel better right now.''
Taylor, who did not play in the 17-7 season-opening victory over East Carolina, led Tech on its lone scoring drive in Baton Rouge. He had 44 rushing yards, including a 1-yard touchdown, and was 7-of-18 for 62 yards in the air.
