We have reached week six of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game that isn’t the case though as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will make the trip to Lane Stadium to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies.
The Hokies won their only previous matchup in 2016 with a final score of 34-31.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have had quite the start to the season and they look like a team that will compete for a playoff spot.
They won their first three games but weren’t super impressive. In the last two games against Wake Forest and Stanford they really opened up some eyes with just how dominant they were in the games.
Against Stanford they played a complete game running up the score but also playing really well on the defensive side giving up only 17 points.
Ian Book took over the starting job from Brandon Wimbish and that seemed to be when their season completly turned around.
He has thrown for 616 yards and seven touchdowns. The most important part was not throwing any interceptions, something that Wimbish had a real issue with.
In this game it’s going to be about not turning the ball over. If the Fighting Irish start to turn the ball over again, they could be upset in this game.
Virginia Tech Hokies
On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Tech Hokies who really probably should have a perfect record if it wasn’t for the big slip up against an Old Dominion team that hadn’t won a game yet.
They come into this game with a 3-1 record and in the three wins they have been very impressive, but it was just the one loss that really hurt them.
One big issue the Hokies have continuing this season is the injury to quarterback Josh Jackson who is out for an extended period of time because of a broken leg.
That means the Hokies are using former Kansas Jayhawk Ryan Willis at quarterback who has been good this year throwing for 527 yards and four touchdowns.
In this game they need another big game from Willis. If he can play a erfect game like he did in the last one they will have a chance.
