Virginia Tech and Tennessee square off in a battle of two teams that need a statement win early in the season.
Virginia Tech had an easy victory against Liberty, while Tennessee needed luck to survive a meltdown against Appalachian St.
Virginia Tech Hokies
Jerod Evans played a good game against Liberty. He had 4 TD’s, threw for over 200 yards, and didn’t turn the ball over.
He faces a tougher test against a Tennessee defense that only gave up 108 yards passing in week 1.
The Hokies will have to do better running the ball this week as neither of their top 2 RB’s had over 35 yards on the ground, and no player had more than Evans’ 46.
Isaiah Ford had a big game (11 rec, 117 yards, 1TD) and should continue his strong play against the Vols.
The pass rush will need to be at its best after generating only 1 sack last week. Expect the Vols O-line to be a significant leap in competition for the Hokies front seven.
The Hokies defense were always the key to success under FrankBeamer.
The cupboard isn’t bare for new coach Justin Fuentes, and I believe they will make critical stops late in the game.
The Vols needed a fumbled recovery in the endzone to defeat Appalachian St, and did not look like the better throughout much of the game.
The offense will find moving the ball harder against a strong Hokies D.
In order for the Vols to be successful they must rely on Jalen Hurd. He should have a good game against the Hokies defense with over 100 yards and a score.
Josh Dobbs can’t play like we have seen him play over the last 3 seasons. Pedestrian at best. For the Vols to have any shot at the win he will need to make more plays down the field, and avoid the costly turnover.
The Vols passing D had a great game against App. St, but gave up huge yardage on the ground to Marcus Cox.
Stopping the passing game will be the key to victory but I think Evans will do just enough to keep Virginia Tech in a position to win it in the fourth quarter.

Jerod Evans and the Hokies offense will control the time of possession, making just enough plays to get a victory by a field goal. Look for 3 turnovers from Joshua Dobbs in critical moments.
