On Saturday afternoon, Virginia Tech will sponsor No. 19 Wake Forest within Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Virginia on Saturday, November 9th. Both ACC teams haven’t confronted because the 6-3 double OT win for Wake Forest in Winston Salem, North Carolina. This time across both groups possess an offensive individuality and therefore are capable of scoring at the 30s. Virginia Tech is seeking to take the next step towards the ACC Coastal Title, while Wake Forest is trying to make matters interesting before a must-win match against Clemson at the subsequent week.

Prior to the competition, the team  VTSCOOP secured in their predictions for the competition.


Bud Foster. This weekend will be tough for him and thousands of Hokie fans that will miss watching him to the sidelines for a long time to come. The really game is all but a secondary idea that weekend to get a few, but perhaps not for VT and definitely not for Bud. Wake is a fantastic soccer team, and they’re well trained. Personally, I believe that they are somewhat over rated, but VT will have their hands full no matter. Hooker and King should settle back , and the LPD should show outside for Buds alongside the last home game in Lane Stadium. I believe that the D has Bud this triumph.

This really is a difficult matchup on a day by which Bud Foster’s greatness is going to be honored. It is sort of like how Tech needed to confront a 12th-ranked North Carolina group that could play to the ACC Championship on Frank Beamer’s afternoon at Lane Stadium. Wake Forest’s offense is scary good, resulting from a dangerous quarterback in Newman, three quite talented receivers, along with a good floor game. Couple the gifted receivers together with all the first-half suspension of Jermaine Waller, along with the Hokies have a issue there.

Tech will desire Hendon Hooker to return on top of his game and direct a systematic, clock-churning crime that remains inconsistent. They are not likely to have the ability to milk the clock each and every play. We don’t know a lot about Hooker and how he’d fare in a tight match – he has only played a match at Miami at which the Hokies were talented brief fields thanks to five turnovers and also a battle against Rhode Island.

I presume the way the initial 30 minutes move will determine everything in this match, as Wake will torch the Tech defense without Waller, or so the Hokies will have it figured out and just get to bring a vital bit back into the lineup into the next half. My disbelief about the Tech offense combined with that which I presume is going to be a tricky matchup at the secondary have me pointing into a Demon Deacon success on Saturday.

It finally comes down to whether you believe in the hype surrounding Wake Forest. I have observed every highlight and happen to be paying attention to each of their matches this year. They go the ball exceptionally well on crime, though battle to complete drives occasionally. Jamie Newman could be the very best ACC QB this season and finally everything falls upon his shoulders the way the crime will perform. Turnovers and situational football will be carefully tracked. I see the Wake crime how I anticipate Virginia Tech to grow into in a couple of decades. Newman reminds me of Hooker in his finest, although Scotty Washington and Sage Surratt remind me Damon Hazelton and Tre Turner, again in their very best. I think the two teams will set up impressive offensive performances.

Defensively, Virginia Tech was trending in the ideal direction. Jermaine Waller is a massive reduction that can’t be understated. Armani Chatman was strong this season, but that is an entire new test. The Wake Forest shield has some dudes, especially Boogie Basham, a former Tech goal on the defensive lineup. They’re an opportunistic bunch, therefore Hooker will need to perfect his time on the offense, not permit any fumbled trades or muffed snaps.

Finally, I believe Wake Forest has a definite advantage on the offensive end, although Virginia Tech’s crime too has a definite advantage. Justin Fuente is calculated on how he would like to strike the Wake Forest crime, who apparently push the rate whatever the circumstance. He will attempt to restrict the possessions through elongated drives and manipulation of this play-clock (rush up to the line, check, drain the clock). I select WF at the start of the year to win this match, and although I am pandering by saying I really like the paths for success for Virginia Tech, I am carrying Wake Forest’s legitimate crime in this game.

Virginia Tech will sponsor Wake Forest Saturday searching for a second ACC win and have a step closer to extending their bowl series. The Demon Deacons are a well-coached group beneath Dave Clawson plus they have just two of their convention’s best wide receivers in Sage Surratt and Scotty Washington. Quarterback Jamie Newman is among the finest in the league along with the Hokies will be without starting cornerback Jermaine Waller for the first half of this competition. For Virginia Tech, controlling the soccer and restricting Wake Forest’s offensive chances in the first half is overriding. On crime, Hendon Hooker ought to return to the Hokies, that will produce the crime considerably more lively. The past two matches I’ve called a close game entering the fourth and that I see a great deal of similarities with this competition. Unlike past week, I believe that the Hokies shut out Saturday’s competition powerful and pick up yet another ACC success and sending out Bud Foster the ideal way.

Prediction: Virginia Tech 35, Wake Forest 31
