COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) David Gist ran for 94 yards and a touchdown and Tennessee Tech outlasted Division II-member Virginia-Wise 31-14 on Saturday night.
The Golden Eagles (2-1) were held out of the end zone except for a 16-minute stretch of the first half in which they scored four touchdowns.
Virginia-Wise's Darrien Newton scored on a 7-yard run for a 7-0 lead with 1:35 remaining in the first quarter, but TTU's Metriu Fleming returned the following kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown to tie the score. Gist punched it in from 1-yard in the middle of the second quarter and Tai Carter returned a fumble 12 yards for a touchdown on the Cavaliers' ensuing possession. A 1-yard run by Bailey Fisher with 35 seconds left in the half capped the outburst for TTU.
