The Virginia Tech Hokies hold a slim lead in the ACC's Coastal division and look to extend it when they take on the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday (12:30 pm ET, ESPN GamePlan; zip here for Virginia Tech-Duke score updates and here for game updates from around the country).
Running back David Wilson and quarterback Logan Thomas continue to prove adept at running over opposing defenses. Gobbler Country is feeling good about that dynamic duo, but does express concern over the Duke defense's ability to stop the run.
The Blue Devils enter this game at 3-4 and have the No. 21 passing offense in the NCAA. Sean Renfree has 1,800 passing yards but just five touchdowns, preventing Duke from averaging more than 24.7 points this season. Duke hasn't beaten the Hokies since 1981 and this won't be the week the now 10-game win streak of Virginia Tech ends.
Game date, time: 12:30 p.m. ET, Saturday, Oct. 29
Location: Wallace Wade Stadium, Durham, NC
TV channel: ESPN GamePlan/ESPN3
Spread: Virginia Tech favored by 15-1/2 points
