The Tennessee Volunteers may have a bright future ahead of them with Lane Kiffin at the helm but it was a rough start. The Volunteers have talked the talk but have yet to really walk the walk as the season has been full of stories off the field that has hurt the team. 

For Virginia Tech it is business as usual as Frank Beamer has the Hokies on to another decent bowl game after winning nine games in the regular season. The special teams played “Beamer Ball” all year and they are ready for this game. 

The stat that sticks out right away is the play on the road. The Hokies are 4-1 on the road while the Volunteers are just 1-3 on the opposing field. This means the Vols don’t travel and focus well on the road. It will be an even bigger feat to take down the Hokies since they have every edge over this Volunteer team.  

The Volunteers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games and 4-16-2 ATS in their last 22 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0. The Hokies are 8-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 16-7 ATS in their last 23 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points. This Hokie team still has a lot to play for and the defense will overpower the Volunteers and win and cover the number in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.  

Chick Fil A Bowl Pick: VT Hokies -4.5
