Virginia Tech is coming off of a 23-21 victory over Georgia Tech on the road getting their record back to .500 at 5-5. Virginia Tech only needs to win 1 out of their last 2 to become bowl eligible. Last game quarterback Michael Brewer completed 15 out of his 29 passes for 178 yards and 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Running back Travon McMillian carried the ball 24 times for 135 yards and 2 touchdowns. Wide Receiver Cam Phillips led the Hokies with 6 catches for 95 yards and no touchdowns.

Virginia Tech will try to stop North Carolina of their tenth win in a row. North Carolina has been clicking on offense and defense and look to be a team to take seriously. I dont think Virginia Tech stands much of a chance even at home. Tech wont be able to slow down this high powered offense. Take the Tar Heels to cover on the road.
