Two weeks ago, Virginia Tech fans were dreaming of a matchup with Florida State in the ACC title game, a potential BCS berth and another 10-win season.
What a difference nine days make.
Now, after back-to-back losses to ACC "heavyweights" Duke and Boston College, the Hokies are 6-3 on the season, 3-2 in the ACC, with a game at Miami next week.
So, instead of reserving those tickets for a January bowl game, the Hokies are more likely headed for another underwhelming bowl like last season's appearance in the Russell Athletic Bowl.
Will they make another appearance in the Russell Athletic Bowl, or will the Hokies head back to Chick-fil-A for the first time since 2009?
