Duke started strong but they have lost their last four games and truthfully they might not have another win on their schedule. It doesn’t look good.
The only blemish for Virginia Tech is a loss to Clemson. The key for them is not getting caught looking ahead because they are at Miami next week.
Duke Blue Devils
If you look closely at Duke it appears the competition stiffened more than they fell off in terms of their play and talent. Their early schedule was pretty light.
The offense has really slowed over the season. During their four game losing streak they have not scored more than 21 points in any of those games.
That has been problematic because this is not a defensive juggernaut. The numbers are alright but this program has never counted on shutting people down.
Virginia Tech Hokies
Even with the loss to Clemson the Hokies are in good position to win the division and make it to the title game, potentially another date with the Tigers.
This team has a vintage VT feel. They are great on defense giving up just 12ppg but their offense has been just OK. They are going to struggle against teams that can score.
Josh Jackson is proving to be more than capable as a freshman QB. I thought they would be better at running the ball though.

When the Hokies are going to be this chalky I think you has to start with the defense and whether this is a matchup they can exploit…it is.

Still this might be one I look to tease and bring it down to the 10 point range which would make it as easy cover.
As it is I think Duke is really going to struggle on offense. That is when things can snowball with the Hokies scoring easily on short fields.
