ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A strange season filled with uplifting victories and mystifying defeats finally draws to a close for Virginia Tech in the Military Bowl.
After winning their first two games and climbing to No. 13 in the AP Top 25, the Hokies lost to Old Dominion and needed a late surge to earn a bowl bid for the 26th year in a row — the longest current streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
Boston College and Virginia Tech are looking to remain in the Atlantic Coast Conference divisional races when the teams meet on Saturday.
The No. 24 Eagles need a victory to set themselves up for a huge showdown with second-ranked Clemson for Atlantic Division supremacy. And the Hokies are trying to keep pace in the loss column with front-running Virginia for the top spot in the Coastal Division.
Virginia Tech is leading the ACC's Coastal Division and has posted all three of its victories on the road.
The Hokies hope to pad their lead when they host Georgia Tech on Thursday night.
The Yellow Jackets (3-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won their last two meetings against the Hokies (4-2, 3-0), as well as their last two meetings in Lane Stadium. This time, they will be facing a defense short on experience against the triple option.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Virginia Tech has had its top performances this season when playing on the road against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents. Throw in the fact the Hokies are coming off a loss, and Saturday's trip to North Carolina looks like the kind of game that often brings out their best.
One week after an inexplicable loss, No. 24 Virginia Tech is back in the AP Top 25, coming off a road win against a ranked opponent and looking ahead to its toughest test to date: a prime-time home game against No. 6 Notre Dame.
The Hokies (3-1) knocked then-No. 22 Duke out of the rankings with a 31-14 victory last weekend. The win came one week after a celebrated return to Virginia's talent-rich Tidewater region ended in a 49-35 loss to Old Dominion.
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Virginia Tech's offense hummed right along with backup quarterback Ryan Willis. The defense barely resembled the leaky group that took the blame for a humiliating loss.
There wasn't anything wrong with these Hokies that another trip to Duke couldn't fix.
Willis threw for 332 yards and a career-best three touchdowns in his first start for the Hokies, helping them upset No. 22 Duke 31-14 on Saturday night.
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — This will be a battle of the backups.
When No. 22 Duke plays host to Virginia Tech on Saturday night, neither team will have its regular starting quarterback. That means the game might come down to which backup — Quentin Harris of Duke or Ryan Willis of the Hokies — has a better night.
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Tech quarterback Josh Jackson has a broken left fibula and will have surgery.
Coach Justin Fuente made the announcement Monday. The coach said the surgery will take place Tuesday, but gave no timetable for how long Jackson will be sidelined.
Jackson, in his second season as the starter, was injured in the third quarter of the Hokies' 49-35 loss at Old Dominion on Saturday night.
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Tech has dismissed junior defensive end Trevon Hill from the football team.
Coach Justin Fuente made the announcement Sunday, saying Hill has failed to uphold "the high standards that we have for our student-athletes."
Hill had 11 tackles in three games for the Hokies (2-1), including six tackles and 1½ sacks on Saturday night in their 49-35 loss at Old Dominion.
A rare chance for Old Dominion to host a Top 25 team is also an opportunity that hasn't come along in while for No. 13 Virginia Tech: A chance for the Hokies to play in one of Virginia's most fertile recruiting areas.
The Hokies (2-0) haven't played in the Tidewater region since a 1986 matchup against Temple in Norfolk, but that will change on Saturday as they face the Monarchs at Foreman Field.
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Justin Fuente said he was worried how his team would handle a quick turnaround.
The No. 12 Hokies had an emotional 24-3 victory at Florida State on Monday night, then had to travel home, operate on insufficient sleep and prepare to play William & Mary on Saturday.
