In this edition of Virginia Tech News, the football team is in another Bowl projection, the men’s soccer team get ready to return to the pitch, and more.
Virginia Tech football projected to play in the Military Bowl
Last weekend, ESPN projections for the upcoming Bowl season had the Hokies playing in the Wasabi Fenway Bowl against Memphis. In another projection, two different outlets have Virginia Tech playing in the Military Bowl.
USA Today Sports and the Action Network both have the Hokies slated to play Navy. Talk about what a fun game that would be. Now, again, there is a long way to go for Virginia Tech to become Bow-eligible. Sitting at 3-4 in their bye week, they need to go at least 3-2 over the final five games to reach six wins. It’s not going to be easy, but it is doable for Brent Pry’s team.
Grant Wells working his way back from injury
Starting quarterback Grant Wells has been out since Week 2 against Purdue when he suffered an ankle injury. At practice Wednesday night, Pry said that senior was at 75% and was getting more work in with the offense than he had been in previous weeks. Sooner or later he’s going to be cleared to return to action, but when he does, unless there’s an injury, he needs to be the backup QB. Ride Drones the rest of the season and even beyond.
Men’s soccer team returns to the pitch tonight and volleyball to the court
The men’s soccer team returns to the pitch tonight (Oct. 20) when they host eighth-ranked Virginia in a Commonwealth battle. The volleyball team, which is struggling big-time, returns home this weekend for a pair of games. First up is Notre Dame tonight (Oct. 20) and Louisville on Sunday. Getting back in the win column is a must for Virginia Tech.
