Virginia Tech is not having the kind of season they were hoping for but they can turn it around with a win this week, which would make them the front runners for the division from here on out.
Pitt has been surprising in this ACC campaign, currently leading with a 4-1 record. If they knock off the Hokies it looks like a fairly clear path.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies are having an interesting season. They are only 1-3 at home and 3-1 on the road to get to their 4-4 record. They generally play good defense and that always plays well on the road but even that has not been a given this season.
Junior QB Ryan Willis was previoulsy at Kansas but has played well since taking over the position due to an injury. He is definitely not perfect but he can given them enough of a passing threat to provide the balance they want. He gives them a chance to win – they are averaging 30ppg.
Bud Foster has been a mainstay with Virginia Tech for so long but you have to wonder if maybe they might move on. This has not been a good season for the defense and it was bound to happen once Frank Beamer left the program. Injuries have not helped this unit either.
Pitt really shouldn’t be in the running for the division the way they have played this season. They got smoked by the good teams on their schedule and even lost at North Carolina. They close with tough game so if they make it to the title game it is because they have held teams off.
The strength of this Panthers team is a running game that averages 230ypg. Senior Qadree Ollison has had some big games and fellow senior Darrin Hall just exploded for 229 yards against Virginia. They are going to try and run it right at the Hokies and is just might work.
Sophomore Kenny Pickett might still be the future for the Panthers at the position this season but he has not been very good. He has failed to reach even 200 yards passing in a game this season. Against Virginia Tech they don’t need him to win the game, just not lose it.

Virginia Tech as a road underdog is always a compelling situation but you have to make sure your are not getting caught up in old logic if you are making those kinds of plays.

This one is going to come down to how much the Panthers are able to run the ball. If they can be effective they could win at home.
By fading them in this spot I am banking on the Hokies defense being closer to what I imagine on the field than what we have seen for much of the season.
