To say the Virginia Tech Hokies’ 2012 season was disappointing would be a massive understatement.
The Hokies finished the regular season with a 6-6 record, 4-4 in the ACC. If this was the SEC one could understand such a mediocre record, but the ACC isn’t to be confused with the SEC.
Since the Hokies entered the ACC in 2004, they have won five conference championships and participated in the championship game on two other occasions. Needless to say, they’ve dominated the conference for some time.
The Hokies’ overall record was their worst since 1992 when the Hokies finished 2-8-1. That was the last time the Hokies missed a bowl game.
With two straight victories to end the season, the Hokies are bowl-eligible for the 20th consecutive season. But how excited could the Virginia Tech fan base be about a trip to the Russell Athletic Bowl?
