It wouldn't be a fall Saturday without an unexpected plot twist in the ACC.
The Hokies have yet to reach the end zone against BC's defense, and trail at home to a 1-5 Boston College team.
That this is a defensive struggle early shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as both teams are known for their defense. That BC is winning that battle is shocking. Neither team has turned it over, both have 142 passing yards, and Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas is the game's leading rusher so far with 38 yards. The Eagles clearly made use of their bye week and haven't given up on this season, despite a dreadful start.
On a day in which Clemson's offense exploded for 59 points, the Coastal Division favorites have yet to score a touchdown.
