Boston College at Virginia Tech: 5 Big Questions — #1

Boston College snapped a losing streak against Virginia Tech last season. Do the Hokies get back on track against the Eagles, or does Boston College get their first Lane Stadium win since 2007?

TT: This is going to be a close game on what will be a cold, wet day in Lane Stadium, with fans desperate for a victory after last week’s humiliating loss. It was in front of a raucous crowd at the beginning of the game that mostly left — deservedly so — due to how the Hokies just didn’t seem to show up on national television.

Virginia Tech’s offense has struggled, but they will need to run the football. They made progress in the second half against Miami with the running game and I think Marshawn Williams will play well. Michael Brewer has had a couple big games when you least expect it and I think he will do his fair share of damage against Boston College.

However, Tyler Murphy and Boston College will make this game very interesting and push the Hokies a lot in this game. Boston College will be excited for this game looking to come into Lane Stadium and get a big win. However, the Hokies will force a couple turnovers and get the job done in the red zone to win a close game 20-16.
