ECU Falls To Virginia Tech 49-27

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- David Wilson ran for two touchdowns and Darren Evans added a rushing score to lead Virginia Tech to a 49-27 win over East Carolina on Saturday.

Virginia Tech (1-2) rallied from a 10-0 deficit, scoring 28 unanswered points in the second half.

The Hokies won their first game of the season despite losing standout tailback Ryan Williams, a redshirt sophomore who broke Tech's single-season rushing record last season (1,655 yards). Williams injured his right hamstring with 7:24 left in the first half and did not return.

Virginia Tech trailed 27-21 in the third quarter, but they took the lead when Wilson scored on a 3-yard run with 4:34 left in the quarter. The Hokies' defense then held the Pirates (2-1) on the ensuing possession.

Wilson, a sophomore, scored on an 8-yard run with 29 seconds remaining in the quarter to give Tech a 35-27 lead.
