Statistical Score Estimate vs. Wake Forest


Well, the mighty Excel didn't get the Ohio State pick right, but they did in fact score more than 23 points and it outpicked some "eyeballs".  Starting to get a larger population of data, so let's see if we can't go undefeated.

 

Details about the Hokie team, their score, and other important games of the week after the jump.

Hokie Offense

Our running game has stayed pretty middle of the pack all year long and the Miami game did not effect it too much.  The Hokie passing game gained 16 spots against an average FBS defense and 21 YPG.

Team Adj Rushing Yards Rank Adj Passing Yards Rank
Virginia Tech 160.9 43 198.2 78

 

Hokie Defense

The Hokie run and pass defense went from 2nd and 7th last week, respectively, to 17th and 22nd as Miami gashed our injury laden line that created zero pass rush and tons of running holes in the second half.  We know this defense can shut most offenses down (minus that one big touchdown scoring play ever week), so lets hope we can get those bodies back on the field.

 

  Defense
Team Adj Rushing Yards Rank Adj Passing Yards Rank
Virginia Tech 105.5 17 201.9 22

 

Wake Forest Game

As F4H pointed out earlier, Wake's run game has been pretty worthless while Tanner Price has been pretty impressive so far this year.  They're pretty average defensively and we're pretty average offensively so , statistically, this game shakes out pretty even.  And with us playing on the road, it should be interesting.
