Six Reasons Why Virginia Tech Can Defeat Tennessee


Good morning, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Fans.

So happy college football is back!!!  The ACC had a really good weekend with Clemson’s win over Auburn – and Florida State’s win over Mississippi.

And that brings us to ACC week two – the game of the week – the Battle at Bristol – college football’s most highly attended game ever in history of the sport will be on September 10, 2016 at 8 PM EST on ABC, when Virginia Tech Hokies take on the Tennessee Volunteers. Before the season started, I was skeptical that the Hokies could compete with the Volunteers, but I have a much different viewpoint on that now.

Why can Virginia Tech defeat Tennessee?

1.) Virginia Tech has the advantage on the sideline.  Bud Foster’s defense is going to wreak some havoc.  I agree with Kyle Tucker who tweeted this out during Tennessee’s game with App State:

2.) Virginia Tech has the advantage on the sideline.  Justin Fuente hasn’t shown the entire offense yet – and why would he.

3.) Virginia Tech has the advantage on the sideline. Virginia Tech can key on stopping the run because Tennessee does not have a legitimate downfield threat (h/t @KyleTucker_AJC).

4.) Virginia Tech has the advantage on the sideline.  Recently, we had Matt Zemek (@MattZemek) of @TodaysUSports on the @AllSportsDACC podcast who mentioned that he wasn’t all that impressed with Vols offensive coordinator, who has been out of the college game for a while.

5.) The Volunteers really aren’t as good as people think they are. (h/t @CFBZ)  Site friend, Terry Johnson (@SectionTPJ), of @TheComeback, thinks that Bud Foster’s defense will prevent the Volunteers from moving forward on offense.

6.) No one is giving Virginia Tech a chance.  The Hokies love the underdog role.

Can’t wait until Saturday 😉
