Top 15 Team Loses Star Quarterback While On Verge Of Massive Upset Loss

Old Dominion football's Foreman Field.

Virginia Tech heading to nearby Group of Five squad Old Dominion is definitely a weird road game, but it shouldn't have been a major concern for the Hokies.

They're getting a real game though.

ODU, which is 0-3 and has looked like one of the worst FBS programs this season, has been tied or in the lead for much of the contest, and now one of Virginia Tech's most important players looks like he'll be out for the stretch.

Earlier this quarter, Virginia Tech starting quarterback Josh Jackson went down with an ankle injury.

Jackson was carted off the field. He was photographed wearing an air cast, which is not a great sign.

Jackson had an up-and-down performance while in, completing just 8-of-16 for 151 yards and two touchdowns, with a pick. Almost half of those yards came on a 72-yard toss to Damon Hazelton, before he was knocked out of the game. After losing Jackson, Virginia Tech back-up Ryan Willis managed to make some plays. He tied things up with a 13-yard pass to Chris Cunningham.

Old Dominion is still upset-minded though, and answered with a go-ahead score with just over five minutes left.

Tech was a 28-point favorite in this one. This would be a monumental, shocking upset.
