Entering the 2023 football season, the Virginia Tech Hokies are facing more questions than answers. Last season, they went 3-8 and only had one non-conference win in September against Boston College.
Other than that, it was a miserable Atlantic Coast Conference season that saw the Hokies lose games in close fashion and by blowouts. Winning one or two of their close games was within reach, but they failed to make plays on offense and defense.
The outlook toward the 2023 season is not promising if you take a look at what the experts think. CBS Sports has Tech finishing near the bottom of the standings and ESPN is not that far off either. There are some reasons for some optimism as coach Brent Pry added three wide receivers from the transfer portal and you have to think that the defense will improve after last season’s performance. Creating just nine turnovers in 11 games has to improve. If not, Virginia Tech is looking at another long fall in Blacksburg.
The season kicks off on Sept. 2 at home against Old Dominion in what is a revenge game after the Monarchs beat the Hokies, 20-17, last season in the season opener. Just how are things going to go in 2023? Let’s break it down and try to predict the 2023 results for Pry’s team.
