Virginia Tech Prediction: What’s Going To Happen
The Hokies aren’t going to be as good as they were last season, but they’ll still be right there in the mix for the Coastal title in late November.
The Josh Jackson issue will sort itself out, and even if there’s a problem, the Hokies will get enough production out of either Ryan Willis or Hendon Hooker to be fine.
There might not be the explosion the offense might need to win the ACC Championship or be a threat to get into the College Football Playoff, but the attack will work.
As always, the defense will be good enough to win with. The talent might take a dip after all the losses to the NFL world, but the line will be fantastic and the secondary strong enough for another great year.
There are enough concerns to expect a clunker or two along the way, sort of like last season’s loss to Georgia Tech. Fortunately, there aren’t enough dangerous games to expect a whole slew of misfires.
Guessing The Preseason Regular Season Win Total Will Be Set At … 8.5
Realistically, the Hokies will drop the road opener against a charged up Florida State, and they’ll split the road games at North Carolina and Pitt.
They’ll be good enough to win two out of three in the big home dates against Notre Dame, Georgia Tech and Miami on the way to a nine-win season.
They’ll beat the Hurricanes, but that won’t be enough to get to the ACC Championship. However, they’ll get to yet another good bowl game with a shot at a ten-win season.
