BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Kenny Pickett threw two touchdown passes and rushed for a score to lead Pittsburgh to a 28-7 victory over Virginia Tech.

Pittsburgh moved into sole possession of first place in the ACC’s Coastal Division. Virginia Tech finished with a season-low 225 yards.

The Hokies’ lone score came on a 2-yard pass from Braxton Burmeister to Tayvion Robinson in the third quarter.
