College Football: Week 12

Hokies pick up a huge win over nationally ranked Miami, and the Hoos limp into a bye week.

Highlights & Recaps

  • Virginia Tech over #11 Miami, 34-27. I…don’t even know. Sure Hokies. You do you, I guess.
  • UNC over Virginia, 45-14. That’s officially the longest losing streak for the Wahoos in over a decade; the Mike London Job Watch continues! As of today, Coaches Hot Seat puts London on Hot Seat #6.
  • #5 Stanford over #3 Oregon, 26-20. Oregon! Y U ALWAYS DROP A GAME TO STANFORD??
  • Pittsburgh over #23 Notre Dame, 28-21. Man, nothing makes me happier than to see Notre Dame play their first semi-official ACC game and then promptly lose it.
  • #6 Baylor over #10 Oklahoma, 41-12. This week has the Baylor Bears ranked #5 in the all-powerful BCS Standings. Who’s not on the Baylor bandwagon at this point? If not, GET THEE ON IT! Plus, the Baylor offense in .gif form:

Virginia Tech vs. Maryland

ESPN3 • 12:30 PM • VT -15.0

A one sentence game preview: if Logan Thomas turns the ball over three times the Hokies will lose this game.

Virginia Tech should win this game handily–but they should have beat Boston College handily too. All of Hokienation desperately wants to believe that the Miami game signaled a turning of the corner, and that we should finally expect a competent offense. But the reality is that this is still a rebuilding year.

I’m not sure you can expect anything from this team—good or bad.

Virginia vs. Bye week


Richmond vs. #21 Delaware

12:00 PM

OK Spiders, you’re riding a two-game winning streak, and a win over a ranked Delaware team in Newark would be a big deal. It’d certainly help assuage some of the sting from those early and mid season losses.
