Russell Athletic Bowl 2012: 4 Hokies Starters Better Than Rutgers Counterparts
Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

While the Rutgers Scarlet Knights enter the Russell Athletic Bowl with a better overall record than the Virginia Tech Hokies, there is reason to believe these two teams are as evenly matched as any two in the upcoming bowl season.

Therefore, there aren't many positions where one team is considerably better than the other.

Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas entered the season with much acclaim, but his struggles and inconsistencies have been well documented. Thomas completed just under 53 percent of his passes to go with 14 interceptions this season. Meanwhile, his counterpart, Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova, completed under 59 percent of his passes while throwing 15 interceptions.

One could argue Thomas' ability as a runner gives him an advantage, however, this position seems fairly even as we stand just under three weeks before the game.

Here is a look at four positions where the Hokies do have the advantage over the Scarlet Knights.
