Yeah, yeah, I know. Virginia Tech lost to an FCS program. I didn't forget it, and neither will the Hokies or a lot of fans. But as teams drop out (Miami), it's an opportunity for other programs to jump in. And in searching for another team this week, I chose the Hokies at No. 25.
Since starting the season 0-2, Virginia Tech has reeled off four straight wins, including an impressive road victory against a ranked and then-undefeated NC State team. Virginia Tech is the only undefeated team in ACC play remaining in the Coastal Division, and it should win the next two games against Wake Forest and Duke before having a bye week to prepare for Georgia Tech.
To me, that amounts to more than an Air Force team that has defeated opponents with a combined 10-19 record.
