Virginia Tech will meet the Penn State Nittany Lions (7-1) at 7:15 on ESPNU in the ACC-Big10 challenge. The Hokies will try to slow down a very talented PSU team thats only lose came in overtime to Charlotte. The Nittany Lions are paced by senior guard D.J. Newbill who is averaging 25 points/game. If the Hokies want to keep pace with Newbill they will need to protect the ball and limit second chance opportunities something they have not been doing very well as of late.

This should be a good test for this young VT squad, but I expect it to be sloppy at times as PSU has not faced an ACC quality opponent this season.
