Virginia Tech Athletics will be honoring the VT Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2021 at this Saturday’s game. One of this year’s inductees, Macho Harris, had a 23-yard interception return TD to seal Tech’s 2008 win over Duke in Lane Stadium. The pick was Harris’ second of the game as he and Stephan Virgil combined for four picks on a day that the Hokies’ defense prevented the Blue Devils from reaching the end zone. QB Sean Glennon connected with WR Jarrett Boykin on a 19-yard pass for Tech’s first TD of the game to take a 7-3 lead at halftime.
