Virginia Tech Football: 5 Keys to the Game vs. Clemson
Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

This Saturday doesn’t get much bigger for the Virginia Tech Hokies as they will travel to Clemson to play the 19th-ranked Tigers.

The Hokies, coming off their best performance of the season in a 41-20 route of Duke, will face a Clemson team that dominated them twice in 2011. Two of the Hokies’ three losses were against Clemson by a combined score of 61-13.

The way the Hokies have looked thus far in 2012 doesn’t inspire much belief that the Hokies can upset the Tigers in Death Valley.

Clemson enters the game at 5-1, 2-1 in ACC play. The Hokies are 4-3 overall and 2-1 in conference play.

The Hokies’ struggles on defense doesn’t bode well against a Clemson team that is ranked 13th in the NCAA in total offense.

Here are five keys to this weekend’s game for the Hokies.
