This matchup will be for the Commonwealth Cup as the Virginia Cavaliers take on the Virginia Tech Hokies.
The Hokies have not lost to Virginia since the year 2003. They will be looking for their 15th straight victory over the Cavaliers, and will have home field advantage to continue their streak.
The Cavaliers have had an average year, sitting at 7-4 overall and 5-3 in the conference. They have been eliminated from the conference title game, but will have the chance to finally break their losing streak against the Hokies and improve which bowl they go to in December.
The Cavaliers are led by quarterback, Bryce Perkins. He has thrown for 2213 yards and 19 touchdowns. They have two running backs with over 700 yards and will need to establish the run against the Hokies defense who struggles to defend the ground game.
Overall the Cavaliers have a solid defensive group. They defend the pass very well and rank at 15th in the country. They also only allow 20.6 points per game, which sits at 24th. The Hokies prefer to throw the ball, so look for the Cavaliers to focus on defending the pass and force the Hokies to beat them on the ground.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies are in the midst of a four game losing streak. They have not won since October 13th, and have seen their season derail dramatically.
During their four game losing streak, the Hokies are only averaging 21.3 points per game. This is about 7 points lower than their overall average of 28.2. One stat the Hokies have had success in is their passing offense. While they only rank 40th in the country, quarterback, Ryan Willis has thrown for 1986 yards and 17 touchdowns. Look for Willis to lead his team offensively and try to make it 16 straight wins over their in-state rivals.
The defense has been a major problem for the Hokies this season, especially in the last month. They are allowing 42.5 points during their losing streak and cannot seem to make the crucial stops to allow their offense to take the field. The do not defend the run all that well, which is what Virginia likes to do. Based on their defensive stats, they will struggle to shut down the top two Virginia running backs.
