Photo: A Virginia Newspaper Accidentally Says Ohio State Beat Virginia Tech On Saturday Night

Every once in a while, a newspaper will make a pretty serious error that'll make you laugh. This is one of those times. The Roanoke Times in Roanoke, Virginia -- which is only about 45 minutes away from the campus of Virginia Tech -- wrote about the Hokies' 35-21 upset of Ohio State in Columbus on Saturday night. There's just one problem: according to the paper, the Buckeyes were the winning team.

It's a simple error, but it's a pretty big one, especially considering that the newspaper is printed so close to Virginia Tech. Still, we'd bet that the Roanoke Times will be more careful the next time the Hokies pull off a big upset.
