Everybody understands that Virginia Tech gets the option hires in Virginia. And Virginia Tech should have been able to win that game.

I can not for the life of me see Virginia Tech winning this video game but you know what they say “Thats why they play the game” and “complete stranger things have actually happened”.
The line for this game appears like it originates from an alternate universe. Somehow, the # 9 ranked (6-1) Miami Hurricanes are underdogs versus the unranked 4-3 Virginia Tech Hokies. A Virginia Tech group mind you that just lost at home to the Liberty Flames.
A popular online sports select keeping track of website presently has 71% of their pickers backing Virginia Tech. That implies 29% must live in Blacksburg or be smoking fracture (or both).

We are constantly on the keep an eye out for so-called “trap video games” and although this completely has the feel of one, I simply can not see that trap door closing. There are no covert angles. I am taking Miami, BIG
Yes, VT beat a number of decent groups, Boston College, NC State, Wake Forest and Louisville, but they lost their only matchup versus a “good” group (UNC 45-41). They have a high octane offense which averages 37 PPG. They likewise have a dreadful defense which offers up 31 PPG, 256 backyards passing per game and 202 backyards hurrying per video game. Miami QB DEriq King should really have a field day versus this defense. Miami, on the other hand, permits 24 PPG, 245 passing YPG and 148 rushing YPG.
I am not knocking Liberty U. They have actually developed a solid program with great transfers, recruiting, and bringing gamers up through their very own high school feeder program (Liberty Christian Academy/10 gamers on roster). However everybody understands that Virginia Tech gets the option recruits in Virginia. And Virginia Tech should have had the ability to win that video game. They were preferred by 17 points! The truth is that they are simply truly not that great.
Miami did simply barely squeak out a win against NC State last week. NC State is 4-3 with wins over Pitt, Virginia and Wake. Virginia Tech lost to Liberty.
