Virginia Tech vs. Virginia: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

Ben GibsonSenior Analyst INovember 24, 2011

Virginia Tech 38 Virginia 0 Final

The Commonwealth Cup, the ACC Coastal Division and ultimate bragging rights are on the line as the Virginia Tech Hokies travel to Charlottesville to take on the Virginia Cavaliers.

These are the two hottest teams in the conference right now. The Hokies have turned their season around after a disappointing performance against the Clemson Tigers. Now, ranked No. 5 in the BCS, the Hokies are eyeing another conference title to add to their already impressive collection since joining the ACC in 2004.

Virginia stands in their way—a team that won only one ACC game in 2010. The Cavaliers have found success under coach Mike London by running the football. With the third best running game in the ACC, Clifton Richardson, Kevin Parks and the versatile Perry Jones have made the Cavalier offense potent once more.

Now they are ranked and going to their first bowl since 2007.

However, where they play will depend on what happens in this contest.

Will the Hokies be able to stop the Virginia offense?

Can Virginia contain explosive running back David Wilson?

Can wide receiver Danny Coale exploit the Virginia secondary as he did before?

Will the Cavaliers use their newfound momentum to match the Hokie's physicality and control possession?

So many questions and they will all be answered on Saturday at 3:30 EST.
