There is plenty left to play for with Frank Beamer’s team and you can bet that the Hokies will have some fight left in them. The ACC conference has not looked too good so far in 2010 and thus VT can still make a run at an ACC championship and an Orange Bowl.
Obviously the premier out-of-conference game for the Hokies in 2010 was the one they played versus Boise, but there are 2 left and both should still be good match-ups. Virginia Tech vs ECU tickets and in Lane stadium will still be completely sold out as the Pirates have an on-going rivalry with VT and will give them a good game. In fact, ECU beat VT in 2008 in their opener on a blocked punt.
Virginia Tech also plays Central Michigan later in October, and you can expect VT vs Central Michigan tickets to be equally sold out. Central Michigan is one of the so called ‘directional’ schools from the MAC, but usually has a talented first string and will not just fold over for the Hokies, especially given the offensive and defensive line problems Virginia Tech has right now.
However it’s the ACC portion of the schedule that has the real interesting games and some real battles as well. There’s plenty to choose from, but it won’t start easy as the Hokies have to travel to Boston College to take on the Eagles, a team the generally gives the Hokies fits. Va Tech will probably be favored, but it will be a game they’ll have to survive, not just win.
