#25 Virginia Tech Reveals Their Uniforms For Virginia Game

OC Robert Anae must call plays that will make QB Kurt Benkert comfortable and allow him to get into a groove.

Virginia Tech tries for its 14th consecutive victory over Virginia when it visits the Cavaliers on Friday, but the No. 25 Hokies should find the going much tougher than they did in last season's 52-10 rout.

The award was started for the 1996 game between the two state foes, with the Hokies receiving the trophy for the first time with a 26-9 win.

This is a sharp look that should look quite good as the Hokies look to take down Virginia for the 14th-straight year. This is the second time that Virginia Tech will wear this uniform combination this season.

For comparison, during UVA's four-game winning streak that included the wins over Boise State and Duke, Benkert dropped back to pass on 49.2 percent of the offensive snaps and was sacked four times, and Virginia averaged 153 yards per game on the ground. Tech has given up 16 plays of at least 40 yards. "You can see that across the board in how they play, the belief in what they're doing". But their unit has been weakened by injuries, having lost safety Terrell Edmunds and defensive lineman Vinny Mihota for the year to injuries. He keys the Virginia offense because their running game has been weak.

TAKEAWAYS: In any game that figures to be closely contested, takeaways are often decisive.

The Hokies are favored by more than a touchdown against the 6-5 Cavaliers.

CROWD: With more than 21,000 tickets going unsold for each of Virginia's first six home games this season, and seats aplenty available for several years now, Virginia Tech fans have always managed to make their presence felt in a huge way at Scott Stadium.

KICKING GAMES: Virginia Tech's placekicker Joey Slye, if recovered from a hamstring injury, is the school's career-leader in field goals with 78 and has range to 50 yards and up. That, combined with a running game that can't churn out enough yards on early downs, means we may see more designed runs for the quarterbacks on Friday - both Jackson and AJ Bush, and even Deshawn McClease may get some more touches.
