Last week, we asked you who you thought was the toughest ACC opponent on the schedule since Ohio State seemed like the obvious choice to be the Hokies’ toughest opponent. Despite the loss of Braxton Miller, the Buckeyes still seem like the toughest opponent but an ACC team could also end up being the Hokies’ toughest and best opponent.
The results in our poll were interesting as North Carolina received the most votes with 27 of the 45 total votes. Miami ended up coming in second with 14 votes which isn’t too big of a surprise but I’m not convinced by due to the lack of experience of true freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya. Duke came tied for third with the “someone else” spot as the Blue Devils probably won’t be as good, especially after losing LB Kelby Brown and TE Braxton Deaver to injuries.
This week, we take a look at how many games the Hokies will win this season.
The Hokies have the talent and schedule to make a push at double-digit victories and restart a streak that many will be hoping can continue for a while. 9 wins seems like possibility while 10 wins also is definitely realistic with the way the roster is for the Hokies. Virginia Tech will be hoping to avoid having 8 or less wins while having a season with at least 11 victories would be big for the program.
The Hokies have a lot of talent but how many games do you think they will win? Will they win 8 or less, 9, 10, or 11+ games this fall? Vote in our poll and tell us what you think.
