Our Preview

Game Notes

  • West Virginia leads the all-time series with a 28-22-1 record. The Mountaineers last played the Hokies in 2005, and suffered their only loss of the season on the way to beating Georgia in the Nokia Sugar Bowl.
  • Sunday will mark the West Virginia debut of former Florida Gators quarterback Will Grier. Grier completed 105-of-160 passes (65.6%) for 1202 yards and 10 touchdowns in six games as a Gator. He’ll look to pick up where he left off, under new West Virginia offensive coordinator/quarterback coach Jake Spavital.
  • Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, a 6-foot-5, 250-pound senior had 18.5 tackles for loss, including 4.5 sacks, last season. Edmunds will be the heart of Bud Foster’s vaunted defense.
  • VegasInsider.com has Virginia Tech as the favorite at -5 with the over set at 52 total points.
