October 09, 2005|From Associated Press

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Branden Ore rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown and No. 3 Virginia Tech overcame a flat first half to beat Marshall, 41-14, Saturday.

The Hokies (6-0) led, 14-7, at the break but got a 19-yard field goal from Brandon Pace, a 15-yard fumble return by Vince Hall and a 48-yard scoring pass from Marcus Vick to David Clowney in a span of 3:29 of the third quarter to lead, 31-7.

Marshall (2-3), which came in averaging 59 pass attempts in its last two games, surprised the Hokies by running the ball with some success early, but the Virginia Tech defense adjusted in the second half and the game turned into a homecoming rout.

The Thundering Herd had 150 yards of offense in the first three quarters before the Hokies emptied their bench.
