The Virginia Tech Hokies are coming off their most impressive victory of the season with last week's 42-14 win at No. 14 Miami. Too bad it took until Week 11 to have a breakout offensive performance.
All isn't lost for the Hokies, though, as they are still sitting atop the ACC's Coastal Division with Georgia Tech, Duke and Miami. All four schools have two conference losses apiece. If the Hokies win out and get a little bit of help, they will be back in the ACC title game.
Next up for Tech are the Maryland Terrapins. Before Hokie fans get too excited, remember Duke?
Yes, Maryland is struggling, having lost three games in a row, but the Terps did win four in a row to start the season. The turning point in Maryland's season came during the Wake Forest game when the Terps' top-two receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, were both lost for the season with leg injuries.
The Hokies and Terps have met a total of 30 times, with each school winning 15 games. The two teams last met in 2009 when the Hokies won 36-9 in College Park. Virginia Tech has won the last five meetings, including all four ACC meetings by a combined score of 142-37.
