Virginia Tech hosts #4 Clemson in prime time on Saturday
Imagine Lane rockin’ with 60,000+, Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit up in the press box.
Fowler and Herbie will be there; the 60,000+, not so much.
The Hokies (4-5, 4-4 ACC) are coming in on a three-game losing streak, and the last one – a 47-14 loss at Pitt on Nov. 20 – was not pretty, in any way, shape or form.
Clemson (8-1, 7-1 ACC) took out its frustrations from its fruitless trip to Tallahassee on Pitt, racing out to a 31-0 first quarter lead on its way to a 52-17 win in which quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for 403 yards.
The Tigers are 22-point favorites with a 66.5-point over/under, suggesting a final score in the range of 45-23.
A loss for the Hokies could portend what would be a second losing season in the past three years at Tech, which hadn’t had a losing record for 26 years before finishing 6-7 in 2018.
