There is no shading this game, the Virginia Tech Hokies needed a win in so many ways that it was nearly painful to observe the coin toss, let alone the opening kick-off. The game didn’t start out exactly as either side had wanted. BC Quarterback Thomas Castellanos is dangerous, and he’s capable of making a huge impact on any game.
It’s just that the Virginia Tech defense, blessed with Pop Watson running the scout squad, was prepared on the opening series. The Eagles lost the toss (shock of all shocks) and elected to try to run the ball back.
