Tale of the tape
Tale Of The Tape: #16 Virginia Tech Vs. Georgia Tech
|Death, taxes, and 10 wins for Frank Beamer and the Hokies. Since 2004 Virginia Tech has posted double-digit victories and as long as Beamer is in Blacksburg, there’s no reason to think that won’t continue.||Coaching||Paul Johnson is one of the more innovative offensive minds in the country, bringing his triple option from Navy to Georgia Tech and turning the Yellow Jackets into an elite rushing offense.|
|Virginia Tech’s quarterback is even bigger than Washington: Logan Thomas is 6’6” and 262 pounds. He’ll be relied on more this season with ACC Player of the Year David Wilson gone to the NFL.||Offense||Senior quarterback Tevin Washington is a big, strong runner at 205 pounds. He leads a rushing attack that has ranked in the top two in yards the last three seasons. He will miss his favorite passing target, however, second-round NFL draft pick Stephen Hill.|
|The Hokies return nine starters—and those starters are very talented, anchoring a unit that ranked in the top 10 in both scoring and yardage defense.||Defense||This unit must improve if Georgia Tech expects to compete for an ACC title or stay with the Hokies on Monday night.|
|Beamer Ball hasn’t been on full display the last few seasons, but special teams are still a staple of the Virginia Tech program.||Special Teams||Placekicker Justine Moore is a reliable junior. He made 11 of 17 kicks last season and shouldn’t be a major factor considering Georgia Tech’s explosive offense.|
We'll just call it a tie
