Virginia Tech senior wide receiver D.J. Coles will miss the rest of the 2012 season after suffering a knee injury in the Monday night victory over Georgia Tech.
Coles injured the right knee in the first quarter of the win over the Yellow Jackets. This past offseason, Coles underwent surgery to repair the PCL tendon in the same knee.
Coles will be eligible to apply for a medical hardship waiver from the NCAA due to playing in less than 30 percent of the 2012 season, according to a Virginia Tech news release. If the NCAA grants Coles the medical waiver, he would be eligible to return as a fifth-year senior.
ESPN's College Gameday was in Harrisonburg, Va. on Saturday morning to visit the reigning FCS National Champion and unbeaten James Madison Dukes (5-0) as they faced off against the Villanova Wildcats (4-2).
The special trip to JMU meant a special edition of the Gameday picks, featuring Lee Corso and his mascot headgear selection.
Not only did Corso have headgear to put on, but the set also had a special guest.
That poor bulldog was terrified of Corso and wanted to do anything but sit on that desk with him in that mascot head.
It was a very good dog and just got scared. Totally understandable. 12/10 would save from falling off the desk.
BOSTON -- Josh Jackson threw for 322 yards and a touchdown and No. 16 Virginia Tech bounced back from a loss to defending national champion Clemson to beat Boston College 23-10 on Saturday night.

Savoy went 53 yards on a slant pattern to open the scoring midway through the first quarter, and the Hokies (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) never trailed.
Travon McMillian ran 17 times for 88 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown that gave Virginia Tech a 17-3 lead midway through the second quarter. With 11 points -- three field goals and two extra points -- Joey Slye became the school's career scoring leader.
Anthony Brown completed 13 of 30 passes for 166 yards for BC (2-4, 0-2). He also caught a touchdown pass on a halfback option from former quarterback Jeff Smith to make it 23-10 with 5:38 left in the game.
