Old Dominion beat Virginia Tech on the gridiron last year. that is not supposed to happen but it was part of the house of horrors their defense was a year ago.
Things did not look much better for Virgnia Tech in their opener and this time it cost them a conference game. They need a rebound.
Old Dominion Monarchs
Barely beating Norfolk State is hardly an indicator of a strong season for ODU. Throw in some revenge and being on the road and things could get ugly.
Last year they rolled up more than 600 yards of offense on VT. This season they are going to have to get at least half of that to be in this game. They did not even net 300 in their debut so I do not like their chances.
The defense was solid but remember the competition. They are going to be undermanned in the trenches and Virginia Tech might be playing downhill all game.
Old Dominion takes on both Virginia state “big boys” back to back with a trip to Virginia next. They are not going to be looking ahead though.
They can’t afford to.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies lost their opener and it was bad in many ways. First off it was a conference game but worst of all it showed the defense is far from fixed.
The offense scored 28 points but was not balanced. Ryan Willis threw for over 300 yards but the Hokies had less than 100 on the ground and averaged less than 205 yards per carry.
Things should get a lot easier in this as compared to Boston College but there is pressure on this group. They need to start looking like the Hokies are supposed to.
Lucky for Virginia Tech the next 6 games are very easy…or at least should be if this team is better than they were in the opener. Look to back them in this spot.

That is a really big number to cover for a team that is struggling on defense. Still their offense is not going to see much opposition.

The hook could be the killer in this one which is why they put it there. They might have to hold the Monarchs to 10 or less.
That is something they should do as I am showing some more confidence in Bud Foster for this one. I am not sure how long that feeling will last though.
