Final: Virginia Tech 30, Boston College 12

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

TAMPA, Fla. -- Virginia Tech is going to the Orange Bowl, and they left no doubt about which team was better today. Boston College is likely headed to Nashville, for the Music City Bowl.

The difference today was in the quarterbacks and turnovers, and the Eagles struggled with both. BC's defense was exposed, and the offense couldn't convert its third downs. Virginia Tech, on the other hand, had one of its best days converting third downs.

Consider this season another heck of a coaching job by Frank Beamer and his staff.

I'm heading down to the interviews now, check back later.
