Virginia Tech is set to take in Boise State at FedEx Field in just over a week. Saturday, the coaching staff held their final open scrimmage and the first team unit looked impressive.
QB Tyrod Taylor completed 16-of-17 passes for 319 yards and three scores, and his performance had head coach Frank Beamer gushing about his senior quarterback. “I’ve said it all along. I feel the same way with him out there as I did with Michael Vick," said Beamer. "The next play could be a big play. Any play has a chance of going a long way, and Tyrod gives you that same element.”
High praise from Beamer, and it's definitely good for Hokie fans to hear that heading into the season. However, the same success from Saturday's scrimmage has led to a few concerns. Add injuries to the mix, and it's evident the Hokies have a few questions they need answered in the next eight days.
Here are the top five concerns for Virginia Tech heading into their season opener with Boise State.
