Bud Foster has earned good feedback for a number of years as the Virginia Tech defensive coordinator, though this whole Hokies team is not what it used to be. Once contending for conference titles annually, Virginia Tech has taken a step backwards, perhaps signalling a changing of eras in Blacksburg.

Foster’s defense is statistically fine, but they are coming off of a rough game. It just so happens that if repeated, their loss could be Boston College’s gain.
