Trends: Ominous trend that doesn't bode well for the Eagles ALERT: the home team has won the last six meetings in this series. Since we last met, Virginia Tech has gone 4-1 while BC has gone just 2-3 (but hey, at least we beat UVa). Since losing to Virginia at home on December 5, the Hokies are 10-0 at home, including six wins in conference play. The opening point spread was Virginia Tech -9, though the Hokies have defeated the Eagles by double-digits just twice in the all-time series -- in 2007 and 2008, both games played at Cassell Coliseum.
