Bud Foster does it again! Another shutout, this time in his last home game. What a performance by the defense, holding Pat Narduzzi's undisciplined squad to less than 200 yards and an embarrassing zero on the scoreboard. Pete and Robbie recap every detail before shifting their focus to Hate Week. The battle for the Coastal division once again comes down to the Commonwealth Cup and the guys are psyched. An opportunity to face Clemson in the ACC Championship Game, as well as an Orange Bowl birth, is on the line. Not to mention #TheStreak. Here's hoping the Hokies make it 16 straight over UVA!
Before the Hokies took GT to the woodshed, Pete got to spend some time talking to former VT football players Eric Gallo and Joshua Oglesby. From the recruiting process, to some of their favorite moments on the field, Eric and Josh spoke openly and honestly about their time at Virginia Tech. It was really cool to get their perspective on the program. Huge thank you to two of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Enjoy!
Bud Foster was the story this past weekend in Blacksburg, and the lunch pail defense certainly did right by him in a 36-17 win over Wake Forest. Pete and Robbie recap how the Hokies stifled Wake's fast-paced attack, and finally praise Coach Corn for his effective play-calling. Up next is a trip to Atlanta with bowl eligibility on the line for VT. Can Fuente's young team handle their new found success and take care of business in the Techmo Bowl? We'll find out on Saturday.
That was a punch in the gut. The VT upset was a long shot when the game started, but it seemed like the Hokies were going to pull it off until the final 30 seconds. Despite the painful ending, it was an extremely valiant effort by Fuente's undermanned squad. Let's hope some of that fight spills over into the Wake Forest matchup. The Demon Deacons are 7-1 and they currently have hopes for a New Year's 6 birth. Tech can play spoiler, move one step closer to bowl eligibility, and get its first win over a top 25 opponent in Lane since 2009. Plenty to play for. With four conference games left in the 2019 season, let's get this final stretch started off right. Go Hokies!
