Boise is the favorite in that matchup. They are ranked #3 currently the Hokies are looking for the upset. I think VT plays it close in the first half but tires in the 2nd. This could also be totally wrong but I m just happy there is actually good stuff to watch on TV!

PS How bout the weather at that Hawks game on Saturday Henry! Both the lady and I got sunburned faces!

Boise is looking really good for playing on the road (sans blue turf) at a really tough place to play.

i have ties to eugene, so it's not easy to be liking b.s. ducks got thumped, endeing in taunting and fists and a suspension.

b.s came out strong at the beginning of last year, but maybe it was due to blue on blue. we'll see how blue on green works.

Neutral field

Va tech is overrated again this year.

The two ugliest uniforms in college football.

Once again Boise won't play anyone.

You're right, thanks for the correction.

Kinnick was beautiful on Saturday. My favorite moment was the students chanting USA, USA when Stanzi came back after that pseudo injury.

No way this is a neutral field.
Perhaps.
Yep, they're really bad.
I think scheduling a team with the history/skill of VT is "someone".

It's not Blacksburgh, it's not home field for either team.

VT is 0-21 against top 5 teams outside of Blacksburgh. They never play good away from home against good teams. They are another team that feasts on weak teams.

Very safe scheduling by Boise St.

IMO

Technically you're right but from Fed Ex to:
Blacksburg: 280 miles
Boise: 2,380 mi

Doesn't matter if VT hasn't shown it can win outside of Blacksburgh

Another TD

Would love to see Boise win. I just hate to see major college teams refusing to play Boise, even on their home field. Boise will play anyone, anywhere! Major are just too fearful they will lose. Chicken shiats, I say. Go Boise!

VT's uniform is hideous. Boise isn't too much better. Their helmets save them somewhat

Well, I'm off to bed, got to help with some surgery early tomorrow. Hope the game stays competitive.

I know it looks good for the ACC if VT wins, but I like the way Boise plays. Kellen Moore is just nasty.

VT is 0-25 all time vs. teams ranked in the top 5.

Please educate yourself. Boise has offer to play anyone, anywhere. All the high profile colleges declined -- except VT. That is a FACT.
How does that make my statement incorrect.......once again this year they won't play anyone.........

As a former student of Northern Arizona University, who usually lost to Boise when they were in the big sky and a long time Virginia resident my loyalties are easy to spot. Looks like they are starting to wear down the Broncos.
