We're Back In It!

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets blew Miami out last night, meaning the Virginia Tech Hokies are back in it — to win it! All the Hokies have to do is beat the Duke Blue Devils tomorrow and the Virginia Cavalierwahoos next Saturday. Both of these games are at home in Lane Stadium for the Hokies, so they should be very winnable games, especially if the Hokies that played Maryland or the Hokies that held both UNC and GT to 17 points show up. Personally, I'd like to see the Hokies from last year finish the season out, but that's not realistic, I know.

VT wins any possible tie breakers now as long as it wins out. But, can the Hokies win the ACC title game to make it to the Orange Bowl? The top of Atlantic division is Maryland right now, a team the Hokies already beat, but VT lost to both Florida State and Boston College — the Seminoles, and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, are on the Terps' heels. Predictions, anyone? I feel a Virginia Tech vs. Florida State rematch in Tampa. The last time those two teams played, Florida State barely won against a VT team that had an injury list longer than Darren Evans ran against Maryland. Next time around, if that's the scenario, will the Hokies be healthy and come out ahead?
