No big changes.

How do things line up for Saturday's matchup against the Hokies.

Offense

QB
1. Tyler Murphy (6-2, 213, Gr.)
2. Darius Wade (6-0, 201, Fr.)

Virginia Tech's passing defense is 19th in the country, allowing an average of 188 yards a game.

TB

1. Myles Willis (5-9, 203, So.)
2. Tyler Rouse (5-8, 194, So.) OR Marcus Outlow (5-10, 207, Fr.) OR Jon Hilliman (6-0, 215, Fr.) OR Richard Wilson (5-10, 212, Fr.)

Tech's defense is pretty solid on the rush, but has had moments of weakness, like last weekend when they allowed 364 yards on the ground to Miami, or when they allowed 250 yards on the ground to Georgia Tech.

FB
1. Bobby Wolford (6-2, 248, So.)
2. Sean Burke (5-11, 234, Jr.)

Same as every other game this season.

WR
1. Charlie Callinan (6-4, 220, So.)
2. Jeffrey Jay (6-2, 197, Sr.)
Nat Dixon (6-3, 172, Fr.)

WR
1. Josh Bordner (6-4, 230, Gr.)
2. Thadd Smith (5-9, 168, Fr.) OR Gabe McClary (6-3, 185, Fr.)

WR
1 Dan Crimmins (6-5, 237, Jr.) 
Shakim Phillips (6-3, 206, Gr.) OR Sherman Alston (5-6, 163, Fr.)

The big boys are staying out there, and why not? They had a solid game on Saturday (minus Crimmins bad read on the first yard line)

Y
1. Michael Giacone (6-5, 262, Jr.)
2. Louie Addazio (6-3, 253, So.) OR Joel Rich (6-3, 255, R-Fr)

No changes.

LT
1. Seth Betancourt (6-6, 300, Sr.)
2. Dave Bowen (6-7, 291, Jr.)

LG
1. Bobby Vardaro (6-5, 299, Sr.)
2. Jon Baker (6-3, 281, Fr.)

C
1. Andy Gallik (6-3, 304, Sr.)
2. Frank Taylor (6-6, 304, So.)

RG
1. Aaron Kramer (6-7, 293, Gr.)
2. Jim Cashman (6-7, 301, Jr.)

RT
1. Ian Silberman (6-5, 294, Gr.)
2. Dave Bowen (6-7, 291, Sr.)

This group is going to need to step up. Virginia Tech has a stout defense that is fifth in the country in sacks with 30.

Defense

DE
1. Brian Mihalik (6-9, 295, Sr.)
2. Malachi Moore (6-7, 274, Sr.)

DT
1. Truman Gutapfel (6-3, 289 So.)
2. Nick Lifka (6-2, 284 Sr.)

DT
1. Connor Wujciak (6-3, 300, So.)
2. Noa Merritt (6-0, 268, Fr.)

DE
1. Kevin Kavalec (6-3, 242, So.)
2. Harold Landry (6-3, 257, Fr.) OR Seyi Adebayo (6-3, 245, Gr.)

Ooh baby did Kevin Kavalec have a monster first half against Wake Forest, registering 2 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss. That is the type of production BC is going to need against an offense that is pretty middle of the road averaging 377 yards per game 88th in the country.

SLB
1. Josh Keyes (6-2, 223, Sr.)
2. Matt Milano (6-1, 220, So.) OR Christian Lezzer (6-0, 210, Fr.)

MLB
1. Steven Daniels (6-0, 249, Jr.) OR Sean Duggan (6-4, 250, Sr.)
2. Connor Strachan (6-2 231 Fr.)

WLB
1. Mike Strizak (6-2, 229, So.)
2. Ty Schwab (6-1 212 Fr.)

No changes.

LC
1. Manny Asprilla (5-11, 177, Sr.)
2. Isaac Yiadom (6-1 170 Fr.)

SS
1. Dominique Williams (6-0, 212, Sr.)
2. Sean Sylvia (6-0, 208, Sr.)

FS
1. Justin Simmons (6-3, 188, Jr.)
2. Ty-Meer Brown (6-0, 201, Gr.) OR Kevin Bletzer (6-2 198 Fr.)

RC
1. John Johnson (6-0, 194, So.)
2. Kamrin Moore (5-11 186 Fr.)

John Johnson's arm injury remains something to watch. Not sure what his status will be going into Saturday's game after he missed last week. Virginia Tech has the 68th ranked passing attack, averaging 228 yards per game.

Specialists

K
1. Alex Howell (6-5, 206, Jr.)
2. Joey Launceford (5-10, 190, Sr.)
P

1. Alex Howell (6-5, 206, Jr.)
2. Mike Knoll (6-0, 214, Fr.)

S
1. Leonard Skubal (5-10, 201, Jr.)
2. Mike Fischer (6-0, 217, Jr.)
3. Austin Stevens (6-3, 256, Fr.)

PR
1. Sherm Allston (5-6, 163, Fr.)
2. Thaddius Smith (5-9 167, Fr.) OR Marcus Outlow (5-10, 207, Fr.)

KR
1. Myles Willis (5-9, 203, So.) OR Sherm Allston (5-6, 163, Fr.)

I hope I don't jinx them again, I seem to have a habit of doing that. Mike Knoll is out with a groin injury.
