Three weeks into the 2023 season, the Virginia Tech football team is 1-2. They won their opener, 36-17, over Old Dominion, then dropped two straight against Big Ten opponents, Purdue, 24-17, and Rutgers, 35-16.
It’s only Week 4 this week and when they travel to Marshall for their final non-conference game before ACC play starts, it feels like this a must-win game in terms of hoping to reach bowl-eligibility at the end of the season. The Hokies enter the game as underdogs and will be up against it with a roster that is banged up.
There are some questions surrounding Virginia Tech like who is going to start at quarterback this week against Marshall? It should be Baylor transfer Kyron Drones instead of an injured Grant Wells, but that decision will most likely be a game-time decision. Can the Hokies stop the run defensively and can they run it offensively? Both have been a thorn in their sides through the first three weeks.
At the beginning of the season, I wrote a piece predicting the Hokies’ won-loss record for this season and since then, a lot has changed. With all the changes, let’s update that by predicting their record over the final nine games.
