A lopsided loss to second-ranked LSU on Saturday night has prompted Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer to change quarterbacks.
Freshman Tyrod Taylor will get his first start this weekend when the 18th-ranked Hokies play host to Ohio.
Taylor replaced junior starter Sean Glennon late in the first half of the 48-7 road loss to the Tigers. Glennon will be the backup this week after making 15 straight starts.
Taylor, who didn't play in a 17-7 season-opening victory over East Carolina, led Tech on its lone scoring drive in Baton Rouge. He finished with 44 rushing yards, including a one-yard touchdown, and was 7-of-18 for 62 yards in the air.
