This Virginia Tech offense has not been as explosive as Clemson's offense, ranking 52nd in passing yards, 80th in rushing yards and 55th in points per game. The Hokies have lost three of their last five games, with two of those losses coming against Big East opponents in Pittsburgh, a future member of the ACC, and Cincinnati.
Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas has been modest at quarterback, throwing for 1,708 yards and twelve touchdowns. He has also thrown eight interceptions and hasn't emerged as a big time threat at quarterback.
The running game has not been strong, with leading rusher J.C. Coleman having rushed for only 319 yards and two touchdowns, while second leading rusher Michael Holmes has 239 yards and four touchdowns.
The passing game features Marcus Davis, who leads the team with 585 receiving yards and four touchdowns, and Corey Fuller, who has 407 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
Overall, Clemson clearly has the advantage on offense.
