The Hokies are coming off a 9-4 season that saw the program posted a 5-3 record in ACC. That conference record led to a 2nd place ranking in the Coastal Division of the ACC. Subsequently, the Hokies managed to miss out on the conference championship. Nevertheless, Virginia Tech still received an invitation to the Camping World Bowl where they would face No. 19 Oklahoma State. Although they put up a tough fight, V-Tech came up short in the end 21-30. However, the end of the season wasn’t all frowns as they did upset Virginia in the Commonwealth Cup beforehand. Moving forward, Justin Fuente will be vying to get this program into the postseason in his 3rd season at the helm.
Players to Watch: Josh Jackson (2,991 passing yards, 20 TD, 9 INT), Deshawn McClease (530 rushing yards, 3 TD, 4.9 AVG), and Sean Savoy (454 receiving yards, 4 TD, 39 REC).
Florida State Seminoles
The Florida State Seminoles had high hopes for the 2017 season, seeing as they were one of the highest nationally ranked teams leading up to the year. Unfortunately, FSU’s season was derailed by some hurricane weather. This forced some several of their early season matchups to be postponed. And seeing as the team finished 7-6, it’s clear they never recovered. They also posted a 3-5 record in conference play, which led to a 6th place ranking in the Atlantic Division. As for this year, the Seminoles still have most of their pieces in place. This should lead to a breakout season for the program.
Players to Watch: James Blackman (2,230 passing yards, 19 TD, 11 INT), Cam Akers (1,024 rushing yards, 7 TD, 5.3 AVG), and Nyqwan Murray (604 receiving yards, 4 TD, 40 REC).
