Despite a record of 4 and 4 the Hokies still control their own destiny to reach Charlotte for the ACC Championship game in December. A win over Miami on Thursday night would be a huge step in the right direction.
"We've got everything within the ACC to play for but they do too," said Coach Frank Beamer. "They're in the same boat as we are so whoever wins this one will have a leg up on the Coastal Division Championship."
The Hokies have made some moves on the depth chart this week in an effort to kick start the offense. Marcus Davis and Dyrell Roberts have both made some plays at wide receiver but have also been wildly inconsistent. As a result, Dimitri Knowles and Corey Fuller have both gotten promotions to co #1's at their respective receiver slots.
