College Football Rankings: Do We Know Anything About Virginia Tech?
Heading into the fifth week of the college football season almost every team currently ranked in the AP Top 25 has passed some type of major test.
That's every team except Virginia Tech. They haven't even taken one.
No. 11 Virginia Tech prepares to enter today's much hyped showdown against ACC rival Clemson as the least impressive 4-0 team in the country.
Through four weeks of the season, the Hokies have defeated two teams from Conference USA, one from the Sun Belt Conference, and an FBS team.
That's it for their non-conference schedule on the season. Not one test against another BCS Conference opponent. A strong case can be made against a Virginia Tech team not playing for the national championship.
The Hokies can change that perception on Saturday when they host No. 13 Clemson. The Tigers have gained a lot of followers on their bandwagon the past two weeks after victories over both Auburn and Florida State, but beating Virginia Tech on the road is a whole different story.
Virginia Tech is gaining over 200 yards per game on the ground and scoring nearly 35 points per game. Even more impressive is that they've allowed only a mere ten points per game so far.
The numbers look impressive, but do they really tell anything about this team?
We can assume that Frank Beamer's squad will turn out like any other Beamer led team, but until the competition level rises today, we really don't know anything about how good this team will be.
Answers about Virginia Tech will come in a few short hours.
