Last week's game: 26-10 win at Boston College
The battle of Virginia Tech's offense against Boston College's stingy defense was won by the Hokies as they jumped out to a 20-0 halftime lead and never looked back.
Boston College came into the game with he second-best defense in the nation, but Virginia Tech was able to do just about everything they wanted to in the first half. Travon McMillian rushed for more yards than the Eagles had allowed to a single player this season by halftime.
The Hokies took their foot off the gas in the second half, but considering how weak Boston College's offense is, there seemed little hope that the Eagles would be able to mount much of a comeback. That was exactly what happened.
The biggest takeaway was what this offense could have been this season. Boston College is fantastic defensively. Only one team has managed more than 26 points against the Eagles this season, Clemson, and that team was declared No. 1 in the nation on Tuesday by the College Football Playoff selection committee.
Where would the Hokies be this season if Michael Brewer was not injured and if the defense was not having such a down year?
Next week: Bye week
