The Hokies of Virginia Tech University have been a solid, rugged and tough team for the past several years. They play in the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). The division and the conference are packed with schools that feature winning football programs.
Fortunately, Virginia Tech has one of those winning college football programs. That may be why it seems to face a “full crop” of top level competition each new football season. The Hokies are a self-confident bunch that is always willing to step on the field to battle an opponent, regardless of its strength and national ranking.
Not surprisingly, Virginia Tech, or “Va Tech” as the squad is known, will have to square off against two top football teams in the upcoming season. They’ll host the country’s Number One ranked squad, Ohio State, in the season opener for both teams on September 7th and they’ll travel south to compete against 16th ranked Georgia Tech on November 12th.
The Hokies will face several other upper level foes at home, including North Carolina State on October 9th, the Duke Blue Devils on October 24th and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels on November 21st.
Furman University, a non-conference foe, will help flesh out the home schedule with a trip to Virginia Tech on September 12th.
Virginia Tech’s Hokies will travel to six different cities to fulfill their road game obligations in 2015. As noted earlier, one of this team’s destinations is Georgia Tech where they’ll compete against one of the top teams in the country. But, there are other road contests that will test the competitiveness of Virginia Tech. These one day stopovers include Purdue and its Boilermakers on September 19th, Miami’s Hurricanes on October 17th and the University of Virginia on November 28th.
Games against East Carolina University (ECU) and Boston College help to fill out a very competitive and difficult home-and-away schedule. Of course, Virginia Tech fields a squad that is talented, resilient and motivated. This school’s players expect to receive invitations to prominent and important bowl games.
It is something they’ve grown accustomed to in most years and it is certainly something they hope will happen when the 2015 regular season draws to a close.
This squad will have to bring its best effort to every game if it wants to win most of them. The ability is there … the desire and the motivation exist, as well. But the slate of games facing this team is filled with tough challenges.
It seems abundantly clear that the football players of the Virginia Tech Hokies will have to bring their “A game” to every contest if they want to earn a major bowl game invitation. The belief is that they can do it.
