The 2014 season is finally here for the Virginia Tech Hokies. No more talk about who will play quarterback this fall—that's settled for now with head coach Frank Beamer naming Texas Tech transfer Michael Brewer the starter over the weekend—or how the Hokies will replace several defensive stalwarts.
This Saturday in Lane Stadium, the Hokies play host to the William & Mary Tribe.
Surprisingly, these schools have somewhat of a rich history. The Hokies lead the all-time series, 40-18-4, but Beamer has only presided over one contest between the two teams—a 44-3 Hokies win in 2007.
Both teams are coming off similar 2013 campaigns. The Tribe finished 7-5 last season but had some big wins over the likes of conference foes Delaware and New Hampshire.
The Hokies finished 8-5 and had some disappointing losses to teams they'd previously dominated.
Will Brewer prove the right selection for Beamer? Saturday is a bit of a warm-up for Tech as it heads to Ohio State in Week 2. But the Hokies better not overlook the Tribe.
