The Boston College Eagles roll into Blacksburg with a 1-1 record. The Eagles defeated UMass last week, 26-7. The Hokies enter the contest with a record of 1-1. The Hokies fell to the Vols last week, 45-24. This game is the first conference tilt for Virginia Tech, and the second for Boston College. B.C. fell to Georgia Tech in week one in a game played across the pond in Ireland. The game is a "White Effect" game, meaning fans are asked to wear white to Lane Stadium. The Hokies will be dressed in predominantly white unis, with the popular white helmets, with orange and maroon accents.
The game marks the return of Scott Loeffler, former offensive coordinator at Virginia Tech. Loeffler was not retained during the Beamer/Fuente transition. The Hokies averaged 31 points per game season under Loeffler's direction. The Hokies' Tim Settle will be wearing 25 this week. The number is a nod to Beamer, and his special teams contributions.
