We have reached week three of the college football season and in this game it’s a non conference showdown. In this game the Furman Paladins make the trip to Blacksburg to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies.
These teams have faced off twice before with the Hokies winning both of the matchups.
The Furman Paladins have to be very encouraged coming into this game even though they are currently sitting with a 1-1 record.
After dominating Charleston Southern in their first game they took on a Georgia State team in their last game coming off a win against Tennessee.
They gave them all they could handle and some could even argue they should have won the game but in the end the defense couldn’t make enough stops and that led to a 48-42 defeat.
The defensive side is probably going to be an issue again in this game, and if they want a chance to win this game the defense needs to find some way to set up.
If they can find a way to get some defensive success in this game that would be the only chance they have to keep this one close.
Virginia Tech Hokies
On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Tech Hokies who have a lot of questions about this season, and they can’t feel great where they are right now.
After opening up the season with a loss against Boston College, they struggled in their second game against Old Dominion but this year they were able to come away with a victory.
At quarterback the Hokies are led by Ryan Willis who is okay, but isn’t a dynamic guy who is going to really pick apart a defense. Coming into this game he has thrown for 616 yards and six touchdowns in the two games, but he has also thrown three interceptions.
The Hokies for years have been known for defense but it seeems like that isn’t the case anymore, and it’s something they need to get back to.
In this game they are facing a good offensive team, and if they don’t play any defense, they could fall to 1-2 on the season.

Furman has a great offensive team and I think in this game that should be enough to at least keep them in it.

I think in the end the Hokies can do enough late to win, but back the Paladins to cover the spread. I am very confident in this pick.
