Virginia Tech Prediction
At first glance, everything seems to be going against BC in this one. The kicking situation is a nightmare. Virginia Tech is coming off a humiliating loss at home to Georgia Tech and will be out to redeem themselves. Tom O'Brien will probably shit himself upon seeing the "VT" on the side of the Hokies' helmets.
That said, I'm going with BC in this one. The defense will get a boost with the return of Ryan Glasper (who made his 2006 debut against Maine), Justin Bell (who will make his first appearance since the 2004 Continental Tire Bowl), Jamie Silva, and hopefully Brian Toal. Moreover, this year's Virginia Tech team has yet to prove that it is really all that good. It's best win to date is an unconvincing triumph at home over Cincinnatti; Sean Glennon is not exactly a Vick; and Georgia Tech's mastery of the Hokies in Blacksburg has shown that they are vulnerable. TOB will get his second ever win over the ACC's "Big Three" and will build up everyone's hopes for the inevitable let-down in Tallahassee.
Final score: BC 23, Virginia Tech 20
