Trap games are typically defined as a formidable team stumbling to a surprise loss against a lesser-known foe.
Unfortunately for Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech doesn't have the comfort of discretion that shields smaller programs, making them ineligible for trap-game status despite their 4-5 record.
"We've got a heck of a challenge coming up," said Jimbo Fisher. "Frank Beamer always has a team that plays well, they've got a great team, very athletic, and we're gonna have to be on our A-game."
He's right, of course: Florida State's lone loss came the only other time the 'Noles have crossed state lines, losing to N.C. State, and playing in Blacksburg on a Thursday night is the Hokies' bread-and-butter. Fisher also spoke about Tech's explosive offense, saying, "They play hard, they're well-coached, they'll punch you in the mouth, and they've done a nice job."
But that is where the light dims on Virginia Tech...
