ATLANTA (AP) -- Virginia Tech bounced back just fine from its shocking collapse against Boston College.

One week after the Number 11 Hokies squandered a 10-point lead to B-C in the final minutes, Sean Glennon threw two long touchdown passes and ran for another score to lead Virginia Tech to a 27-3 win over Georgia Tech tonight.

The Hokies (7-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) moved into a first-place tie with rival Virginia in the Coastal Division. The teams meet in the final game of the regular season.

Georgia Tech (5-4, 2-4) saw its slim hopes of making a second straight trip to the ACC championship game go down the drain.

The Yellow Jackets were simply horrible after jumping ahead 3-0 on their second possession.

Rubbing more salt in Georgia Tech's wounds -- Glennon wore a replacement jersey provided by the Yellow Jackets when his own jersey couldn't be found.

Maybe Taylor Bennett should have worn a Virginia Tech jersey.

The Georgia Tech quarterback threw four interceptions, and even a 35-yard completion to James Johnson went awry when the Georgia Tech receiver was stripped of the ball and the Hokies recovered.

Freshman Josh Nesbitt also got a shot at quarterback, but he overthrew a wide-open Johnson on what would have been a certain
touchdown. For good measure, Nesbitt threw the Yellow Jackets' fifth interception late in the game.
