Virginia Tech returns to Lane Stadium on Saturday afternoon to host another ACC counterpart when Georgia Tech comes to town.
The Hokies (2-6) have lost the last five contests including ACC bouts against North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Miami, and NC State. Georgia Tech (3-5) enters the contest riding a two-game losing streak after falling to Virginia and Florida State.
Virginia Tech’s offense, which averages 318.7 yards per game, is led by Grant Wells. The former Marshall signal caller has thrown for 1,682-yards through eight games with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Virginia Tech’s offense averages just 19.6 yards per contest.
Georgia Tech is led by Jeff Sims, who has thrown for 1,115-yards and five touchdowns to three interceptions this fall.
A win for either program would keep bowl eligibility alive with Georgia Tech needing to win three of its final four games to reach a post-season bowl while the Hokies will need to win out to receive a bowl bid in Brent Pry’s first season.
The game is scheduled for a 12:30 kickoff and will be televised on RSN. At the time of publication, Virginia Tech is considered a 3.5-point favorite.
