2009 Virginia Tech Football: Peach Bowl vs. Tennessee Game Thread

Virginia Tech Hokies (9-3, 6-2) vs. Tennessee Volunteers (7-5, 4-4)
2009 Peach Bowl

Time: 7:30 p.m. EST
Date: Thursday, Dec. 31, 2009
Place: Georgia Dome (71,996), Atlanta, Ga.
TV: ESPN (DirecTV 206)
Radio: XM 140, Sirius 120
Spread: Virginia Tech -6
Weather: Dome

What's at stake for the Hokies is their first back-to-back bowl wins and their first win over an SEC team since 2002. Both teams have strong defenses and great defensive coordinators. Conventional wisdom says this one will be a slobberknocker, which of course means it'll be a high-scoring trackmeet. The Hokies need Tyrod Taylor to be efficient through the air and clutch with his feet. They need the defense to shut down Montario Hardesty. And they need the special teams to come up with a big play. I think this will be one of the better bowl games of the season.

I'll be around to comment and answer questions. It's the last game thread of the season so let's make it a lively one.
