Look ahead to Boston College. 

The Hokies come back to action on Saturday against the Boston College Eagles.  The Hokies are essentially out of the Coastal division race, but if the Hokies can win 2 out of the next four games, they will be eligible for a bowl game.  It would be nice for the Hokies to go 4-0 thRough these last four games to show the nation we are not just some push over team.

However, to do this, they need to start with the Eagles.  Boston College presents a problem for the Hokies in the fact they have a very potent rushing attack.  The attack come not only from the running back but from the quarterback, a position the Hokies have had trouble stopping in games as well as seasons past.

The Hokies also need to get the offense going in this game.  If that means benching Michael Brewer in favor of Mark Leal, then do it sooner than later.  Leal looked good in his time running the offense on Thursday.  The play calling will need to improve, if the Hokies do get down to the Eagles the offense will have a tall order coming back on Saturday.

The simple fact is the Hokies are going to need all hands on deck to help get them over the hump and into a bowl game, and I do mean everybody.
