Look Ahead to Georgia Tech
Hopefully, this letdown game was only a one week thing as the Hokies open conference play this weekend. The Hokies welcome Georgia Tech to Lane Stadium and they welcome an entirely different offense.
The Yellow Jackets will try to win the war in the trenches and run the ball to control the clock. The Hokies defense always play the Yellow Jackets tough, and Bud Foster has a game plan to stop a big rushing attack. The Hokies’ defense will need to be better against the Yellow Jackets then they were against the Pirates.
The offense will need to be sharper as well. The offense Georgia Tech runs will prevent too many opportunities for Michael Brewer and company. Brewer will need to be sharp and come away with points on most or all of the Hokies drives in order to get the conference schedule off to a good start.
The Hokies need to get the running game on track as well to give Brewer a chance to get into a rhythm in the passing game. One thing is for sure, Brewer does not need another weekend like the one he had against East Carolina.
