Game Preview

The Hokies have been devastated by absences due to either injury or Covid, yet this is a team that still nearly completed a massive comeback against (now top 10 ranked) UNC. Virginia Tech hasn’t scored under 30 points in any game this season, meaning we are likely in for another shoot-out. Look for Phil Jurkovec to continue to put up big numbers while hoping the defense can get a turnover or two in key situations.
