ACC Power Rankings: Head-scratching results muddle the league's middle tier

With only season-finale games against rivals -- both in-conference and out-of-conference -- looming, the ACC has to bounce back from what was a pretty tough weekend, all things considered. A ranked team dropped out in No. 25 Duke as they were shellacked by a .500 North Carolina squad at home, and a Miami team that has looked good most of the year got blown out by a 4-6 Virginia team...

Hokies visit Wake with eye on bowl eligibility

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) The only thing standing between Virginia Tech and a 22nd straight bowl berth is the worst team in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

WATCH: Virginia Tech Head Coach Frank Beamer Tries to Do the Nae Nae (I think)

When you can't win a championship of any kind there is one thing that college football coaches are able to use to motivate their kids--a bowl game. Virginia Tech is not quite bowl eligible, but to have a chance at getting there they needed to beat a ranked Duke team and they did in a close 17-16 battle. So--to say the team was happy when they got back to the locker room would be...

With a one-point lead late in the 4th quarter, I could understand going for it on 4th down or running a fake, but it would depend on the field position and the down and distance obviously. On 4th and 16, from their own side of the 50, Frank Beamer decided that it was the proper […] The post Virginia Tech Runs Awful Fake Punt With Lead Late In The 4th Quarter appeared first on Diehardsport.

BC puts unbeaten road record on line vs. Hokies

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has said all along that the Hokies are young and a work in progress. He hopes to see lots of that progress Saturday when they host surprising Boston College.

Time to kick the Hokies while they are down

Despite his legendary status in Blacksburg there is a sense of unease among Hokie fans about Frank Beamer. The similarities between Beamer and other coaches who outstayed their welcome (Bowden and Paterno) are obvious: declining wins, putting his son in an important position, a more hands-off approach to recruiting. Now there is fear about even getting bowl eligible. BC cannot keep...
