Hokies still looking for running game

By Heather Dinich

MIAMI -- Time is running out for Virginia Tech to find its running game, as the Hokies trail 26-12. Stanford's defense is making Virginia Tech one-dimensional.

The Hokies are averaging three yards per carry, compared with Stanford's eight. For all of the hype surrounding Virginia Tech's loaded backfield, the Hokies are going nowhere fast on the ground against the Cardinal, and it all starts up front.

Stanford is getting more out of its offensive line Monday night, as it has all season.
