This years’ Belk Bowl should be a good one with the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Kentucky Wildcats facing off at Bank of America Stadium.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 1987.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Virginia Tech Hokies have had a nice season so far this year, but they have to have a bad taste in your mouth after losing their last game against the Virginia Cavaliers.
On the season the Hokies have had a lot of success with the offense. The Hokies are averaging 30.9 points per game with 217.3 yards per game through the air.
At quarterback the Hokies are led by Hendon Hooker who has thrown for 1,445 yards, 11 touchdowns, and two interceptions.
On defense, the Hokies have been okay giving up 23.7 points per game which isn’t terrible, but they haven’t been as good as the Wildcats.
In this game it’s going to be Hooker and the rest of the offense having a lot of success. If the offense is good in this game, and Hooker isn’t turning the ball over, the Hokies should have a good chance to come away with a victory.
On the other side of this matchup is the Kentucky Wildcats who won their last three games and a win in this game would be the icing on the cake.
The offense had some major struggles earlier in the season, but they have really been clicking the last three games. In each of those games they have scored at least 38 points, and the offense has to have a lot of confidence in this game. It’s a good thing they have confidence because the offense is going to need to be good in this game.
This is a run first team that is averaging 274.8 yards per game on the ground. If the game comes down to quarterback Sawyer Smith the Wildcats could be in some trouble.
On the defensive side of the ball the Wildcats have been really good giving up only 18.4 points per game. Over the last three games that defense has been even better giving up only 11.3 points per game.

I think this game might come down to how well the Wildcats throw the ball and that is going to spell a lot of trouble for them.
