2016 Virginia Tech Season Preview
Virginia Tech lost 5 games last season by a combined 20 points, leaving Hokies fans believing that the team is only a few plays away from being contenders in the ACC. Quarterback Michael Brewer returns for his junior season and looks to be much improved in 2015. Also returning to the Hokies this season is running back J.C. Coleman who will likely receive increased carries in 2015. As has been the case for many of Frank Beamer’s teams, the defense will be key to Virginia Tech’s chances. A defensive line that boasts 3 senior starters, including Corey Marshall, might be the best unit in the ACC Coastal division, and will be a focal point for the team. Virginia Tech welcomes defending the National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes to Blacksburg in the first week of the season. Other top games on the 2015 Virginia Tech Hokies schedule includes At Georgia Tech, and at home against Duke and North Carolina.
