Calvin Johnson caught six passes for a career-high 165 yards. His previous high game was 131 yards vs. Connecticut in 2004.

Johnson caught touchdown passes of 58 yards and 66 yards. The 66-yard touchdown catch is the longest reception of his career and Tech’s longest play from scrimmage this year.

With 165 yards tonight, Johnson became the fifth receiver in school history to top the 2,000-yard mark. He now has 2,036 yards.

With his first completion (16-yard pass to James Johnson), Reggie Ball topped the 8,000-yard mark for career total offense. He is just the 14th player in ACC history to accumulate at least 8,000 yards of total offense (rushing and passing).

Reggie Ball’s 17-yard reception from Mike Cox in the first quarter was the second of his career. He caught a 33-yard pass from Damarius Bilbo last year vs. North Carolina.

Tashard Choice’s third-quarter fumble was the first lost fumble of the season for Tech.

The Tech defense held Virginia to 166 yards of total offense, the fourth lowest figure for a Tech opponent under defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta. Fewest Yards of Total Offense Allowed by Jon Tenuta defense: 82, Maryland, 2004 144, Tulsa, 2003 163, Samford, 2006 166, Virginia, 2006

Tech held Virginia to 51 yards rushing, the 27h time in 54 games that the Jackets, under defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta, allowed fewer than 100 yards rushing. Tech is 20-7 in those games.

Virginia’s 115 yards passing is the fifth lowest figure by a Tech opponent against a Jon Tenuta defense.
