LOSS

Virginia Tech struggled to find continuity on offense this season, but where they seemed to thrive was in their biggest games against the top defenses. They scored 30 points against Boston College's sixth-ranked defense in the ACC Championship and they put up 23 against BC in their regular season matchup. They were able to score 20 against a Georgia Tech stop unit that ranks #23. They reached 20 points against the #13 ranked Seminoles as well. It was a difficult schedule that saw the Hokies play week-in and week-out against Bowl teams as nine on their schedule have advanced to Bowl games. That schedule has prepared them well for this big game. Cincinnati's defense gets good marks for the season, but in their six games against Bowl teams they allowed 25.7 ppg. In what is expected to be a close game, the Frank Beamer "special teams advantage" may very well come into play. I like the tested Hokies here vs. a team that has had too many offensive question marks all season. In addition, this total has been set much lower than my expectation. Take Virginia Tech and the OVER.
