Virginia Tech Hokies

The Hokies turned in a 6-7 record last season that also included a 4-4 run in ACC play. This was a bit of a letdown for Virginia Tech considering they had finished with a 9-4 record the previous season. Despite not having that great of a season, the Hokies were still invited to the Military Bowl. There they faced off against Cincinnati in a close 31-35 losing effort. Moving forward, Justin Fuente will return once again to lead this program as head coach. This will mark the 4th season Fuente has been leading the Hokies out onto the field.

Players to Watch: Ryan Willis (2,716 passing yards, 24 TD, 9 INT), Steven Peoples (786 rushing yards, 6 TD, 5.0 AVG), and Damon Hazelton (802 receiving yards, 8 TD, 51 REC).

Boston College Eagles

The Eagles tried to fly high last season but only made it to a 7-5 record and a 4-4 run in ACC Play. However, considering just how tough the ACC is, going 4-4 isn’t all that bad. The previous season Boston College finished with a 7-6 record so it’s looking like they’ve hit their plateau. Heading into 2019, Steve Addazio will return as Boston’s head coach, marking his 7th season at the helm. With plenty of returning starters on both sides of the ball, the Eagles are excited about the upcoming action.

Players to Watch: Anthony Brown (2,121 passing yards, 20 TD, 9 INT), AJ Dillon (1,108 rushing yards, 10 TD, 4.9 AVG), and Kobay White (526 receiving yards, 3 TD, 33 REC).
