Is this legal in Virginia?

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

I’m guessing this Carolina team won’t be the first since 1906 to win in Blacksburg. The Hokies may not be the dominant side they’ve been over the past for years, but there is still plenty of talent. Virginia Tech beat ECU at home by 10, and then was destroyed by LSU in Baton Rouge. Since then, they’ve taken out their frustrations on Ohio and both William & Mary. Tech is taking a lot of heat for their lack of a running game and they’ll surely look to get up early and then work on that. Our expectations have fallen dramatically after last week and I imagine that will help the Heels focus on their tough task. If we play well we could put a scare into the Hokie Pride World Wide.

Keys to the Game:

1. Score more points.

2. Protect the QB. T.J is going to be seeing quite a few blitzes on Saturday. Last season we threw 4 interceptions against the Hokies and turnovers would end this one pretty quickly. Still we’ll likely struggle running the ball and this team will win or lose games on the young arm of T.J. Yates. Our line has to give him some time or it will be a very long afternoon.

3. Hang in it early. We were down 14-0 before I could blink last weekend in Tampa. IF we fall behind by more than a TD against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg we’ll be coming home 1-4

Info: 12:00 WRAL, VT is favored by 18

Prediction: VT 21-10 UNC
