No one on September 29th would have told you that the Virginia Tech Hokies would be playing the Virginia Cavaliers for more than pride. The game tomorrow is for the Commonwealth Cup, the Coastal Championship, and a very probable Orange Bowl bid. Both teams won’t make more than the trip to Florida this New Year’s week, but a shot at a first tier bowl is an amazing feat given our supine position at the end of September.
Let’s take a look at the news for the week.
The BeamerBall Awards
Two players just stood out for their effort so much, they have each been awarded the 25.
For the first time, we've got two Beamer Ball recipients ‼️@DaltonKeene18 & ACC LB of the Week @__Lamont will both don the 2️⃣5️⃣ in Friday's contest at Virginia— Virginia Tech Football (@HokiesFB) November 27, 2019
Dalton “Rambo” Keene and Rayshard “Rook” Ashby will both be wearing the #25 for the UVA Game.
There was an ACC Team of the Week named... Guess who?
Rayshard Ashby is the ACC Linebacker of the Week, again.
Bryan is having Thanksgiving with his family, he’s going to check in later this evening.
Still waiting to see if Nathan checks in. Hoping the holiday didn’t blur the memory that he’s got a prediction to send up.
This is actually the most difficult prediction that I have made this season. The Wahoos are so close to beating us. TOO Close, but they have Bryce Perkins for this season, and they are going to be really hot to stop the winning streak, more hot to avenge last season’s comeback OT win by the Hokies, and spoiling to win their first divisional championship... in like forever. That means all the stops will be out. The Commonwealth Cup, the Coastal, and the Orange Bowl are at stake for both teams. If Tech keeps up the energy, pace, and quality of play, they’ll win this one by a bout a touchdown.
Hokes 32 - Wahoos - 28
Now it’s your turn to chime in.
Nothing Fancy. No scenarios. Just simple stuff.
