Virginia Tech is Demolishing The AAC

Virginia Tech NCAA Football

If history serves, Virginia Tech was more than happy to see they are facing Tulsa in the Independence Bowl this year. The Hokies are 25-5 SU in their last 30 games against AAC opponents.

Shark Bites
  • Tulsa is 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in each of Virginia Tech’s past four games.
  • Zack Langer has punched in 17 touchdowns for Tulsa this season.

This will be Frank Beamer’s last game on the sidelines for Virginia Tech after more than two decades coaching the Hokies. So it is needless to say Virginia Tech will be plenty motivated. Isaiah Ford has been the one bright spot offensively for the Hokies as he could become the first receiver in school history with 1,000 yards in a season in this game.

The other sideline is a different story, as first year head coach Philip Montgomery made Tulsa one of the top offenses in the nation. The Golden Hurricanes stood toe-to-toe with some of the best teams in the nation this season and despite not having a landmark win, they are a real threat to score every time the offense takes the field.
