Why will Virginia Tech cover the spread?

  • Boston College has managed a 1-2 record on the road this season, with its lone win coming by just seven points against a weak Wake Forest team.
  • Virginia Tech has dominated BC under Justin Fuente. The Hokies are 2-0 with a combined score of 72-10 against the Eagles.
  • QB Ryan Willis has done an impressive job filling in for original Hokies starter Josh Jackson. Willis has thrown at least two touchdowns in each of his four starts this season and has averaged 265.8 yards passing in those contests.
  • VT’s red-zone offense ranks sixth-best in the nation in trips converted. Twenty-two of 23 red-zone trips have turned into points, with 17 of those 22 cases ending in touchdowns.
  • In a road game where field position is crucial, the Eagles will trot out one of the worst punting units in the country. Boston College ranks 127th out of 129 teams in net yards per punt this season. Look for the Hokies to have some short fields on Saturday.
