The Virginia Tech Hokies couldn’t be any happier now that the calendar has flipped to October. September was not too kind to the Hokies as they finished the month with a 3-2 record that included losses to two Big East teams.
The Hokies will face Coastal Division-rival North Carolina this Saturday in Chapel Hill.
The Hokies, fresh off a disappointing, last-second loss to Cincinnati, face a North Carolina team with a lot of offensive talent. First-year head coach Larry Fedora employs a prolific spread offense led by talented junior quarterback Bryn Renner.
Virginia Tech’s defense is coming off a disappointing performance to Cincinnati where Bearcats quarterback Munchie Legaux threw for 376 yards and three touchdowns. Legaux’s previous high was 217 yards.
Can the Hokies bounce back from last week’s disappointment on the road at North Carolina?
Here is a preview of this week's game.
