This is the very first matchup ever between your Monarchs and also the Hokies. This may be a trap game for Tech when the Hokies don’t give Old Dominion enough attention and when ODU features its own act together four days in to the season. The Monarchs finished 10-3 last season, winning their last six games, together with a bowl game against Eastern Michigan. But it’ll be coming off a house game against New York and is reeling a little.
Plenty of “ifs” include farmville. When the Hokies and Clemson both win their first four games, this’ll function as the game each week across the country, maybe an College Gameday destination. Clemson is fresh off a nationwide championship, but like Tech, it lost a lot of weapons on sides from the football.
Conjecture: 42-7, Virginia Tech
