It has been 11 years since the Virginia Cavaliers defeated the Virginia Tech Hokies. That long losing streak continues on Friday night in Blacksburg, Virginia, as the Cavaliers lost 24-20 to the Hokies at Lane Stadium.

The win makes the Hokies bowl eligible, as the Cavaliers season is finished. The Hokies (6-6) will be making their 22nd straight bowl appearance in a few weeks.
