ACC football brings us a showdown as the Virginia Tech Hokies travel to Chapel Hill to face the Tar Heels of North Carolina. Both teams are coming off losses to Top 25 opponents and will look to get their respective seasons back on track Saturday night.
The Hokies took a 22 point beat down at home against 5th ranked Notre Dame last weekend and the Tar Heels lost an embarrassing road game to #16 Miami by a score of 47-10.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies have had a strange year so far this season, not one game they have played has been decided by less than 14 points, in a win or a loss. They either decide to show up and play dominantly, or they just show up because that’s what the schedule tells them to do.
Not that the ACC is stacked with College Football Playoff contenders, but the Hokies will need to start showing up defensively more if they want to strive for a winning record and a bowl appearance at the end of the campaign.
The Hokies either look great, or horrible to put it nicely. On the year they are averaging 35 points per game and are giving up 25.6. But let’s take a deeper look at that. In wins they average 42.5 per game while giving up only 11.3. Sounds good right? But in losses it’s a different story. Only 29 points for, while giving up 47 points against.
North Carolina Tar Heels
While both of these teams had games cancelled due to weather, North Carolina is the one that actually benefited from it. The team was set to play #10 UCF, in what most likely would’ve been a lopsided defeat for the Tar Heels.
For a few years the Tar Heels seemed to be making a name for themselves on the football field for a change, but this season has the look of Tar Heels football seasons past, as they look pretty bad out there once again.
The lone win on the year was a three point victory against Pitt at home. But it really hasn’t mattered where this team is playing, they’ve been bad both home and on the road. Offensively this team has struggled, averaging 21 points per game (though they’ve only scored more than 20 in a game once).
Defensively they’re even worse, giving up an average of 49 points per contest.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Pick
The Hokies offense should be too much for the Tar Heels defense to handle on Saturday night. Tech is coming in scoring more than 30 a game, while the Heels are giving up damn near 50. This should be a no brainer.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Virginia Tech -6. Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
Virginia Tech will cover the spread in this one. Six point favorites on the road is an easy one for the Hokies to walk away with.
Not saying this will happen, but if North Carolina’s defense doesn’t show up in this one, the Hokies may run away with the game, scoring the over all by themselves.
