10* Bowl Burial Friday
Rutgers vs. Virginia Tech,
12/28/2012 17:30 EDT,
Score: 10 - 13
Point Spread: -2/-110 Virginia Tech
Typically the Virginia Tech Hokies' goal each season is to play in South Florida at the Orange Bowl. Afterall Coach Frank Beamer has consistently kept Virginia Tech at the top tier of the ACC and the Hokies are usually in the midst of the ACC Championship hunt where the winner plays in the prestigious Orange Bowl. The Hokies had to rally this season to win their final two games to finish at 6-6 at earn a postseason bowl bid.
Virginia Tech definitely wants to avoid ending the year with a losing record when they meet the Scarlet Knights this Friday night. Luckily the Hokies have a little history on their side considering ACC teams have won the last 8 of 9 pairings in the Russell Athletic Bowl. VTech has the edge of the offensive line, defensive line, and coaching. VT has a big dual threat QB with Logan Thomas which Rutgers hasn't faced all season. In sunny Orlando Florida on Friday I like the athletes on VTECH to get the win and cover for us.
