It's never too early to start looking ahead to next season in college football. Spring practice is still several weeks away and many positions are up-for-grabs at schools across the nation.
The Virginia Tech Hokies are coming off their worst season in 20 years, but fortunately for the Hokies, the majority of last year's excellent defense returns in 2013. Senior quarterback Logan Thomas also returns and his play will be a big factor in how the Hokies fare next season.
The Hokies' overall schedule doesn't appear to difficult outside of the season opener against defending national champion Alabama. The Hokies avoid having to play Florida State and Clemson, generally the two best schools on an annual basis in the ACC along with the Hokies.
It may be way early, but here is a look at all 12 games for 2013.
