Gobbler Country Official Gamethread: Hokies vs Hurricanes

New, 134 comments

Thursday night. Lane Stadium. A pivotal ACC Coastal clash.

Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

The Hokies take on the Hurricanes tonight at Lane Stadium. Both teams are coming off of dissappointing losses - Virginia Tech suffered another defeat at the Carrier Dome last Saturday, while Miami fell 20-13 at North Carolina. This is a huge opportunity for both teams to take advantage, as the winner will likely gain an upper hand in the competition for the Coastal division crown. The Hokies haven't lost at home this season, and look to move to 4-0 in Blacksburg.

The last time the Hurricanes were in Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech was simply outmatched. Miami rushed for 364 yards on just 39 carries in their 30-6 dismantling of the gobblers. The Hokies's possess a much improved defense however, and Miami's offense is not nearly as talented as it was two years ago.
