We have reached week five of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s an ACC showdown on Saturday night at Wallace Wade Stadium when the Virginia Tech Hokies make the trip to Durham to take on the Duke Blue Devils.
The Hokies have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Virginia Tech Hokies
If this game would have been played last weekend the Virginia Tech Hokies would be the favorites but it’s one week too late for that.
After having impressive wins in the first two games, they went to Old Dominion as 27.5 point favorites and they came out with a loss.
The Hokies are known for having a good defense, but against the Monarchs, they gave up 49 points and that led to a shocking defeat.
In this game a few things need to happen to come out with a victory. To start the defense is going to need to play a lot better than they did against the Monarchs.
On the offensive side of the ball they need to get good play from quarterback Josh Jackson. He has had an up and down season and needs to be good in this one.
Duke Blue Devils
On the other side of this matchup is the Duke Blue Devils who are known as a basketball school, but maybe they are also a football school.
They come into this game with a 4-0 record including winning two games where they were big underdogs in. For the Blue Devils they are a good offensive team but their strength is on the defensive side of the ball.
They are giving up only 15.2 points per game and they are going to need to flex their muscles again in this game.
To win this game the Blue Devils need to get out to a fast start. If they get out to a fast start they have a really good chance to come away with a win.
