It will be an ACC conference matchup right away for both teams. They go head to head for the first time since the 2012 season. Justin Fuente is now in his third season with Virginia Tech. In his first two seasons it was an appearance in the Belk and Camping World Bowl. It was a 9-4 year for the Hokies in 2017. The year saw a drop in offensive production with the team averaging 28.2 points per game which was seven points fewer than in 2016. On offense for the Hokies will be seven starters returning. Included is starting quarterback Joshua Jackson for his sophomore season. Quarterback accuracy was at issue for Jackson completing only 59.5% of his throws. In today’s college football quarterbacks for major programs should complete at least 65%. Hokies have experience in their offense line which returns four starters. On defense the Hokies played at an elite status giving up 14.9 points and 319 yards per game. Those numbers will be hard to match with Virginia Tech returning only five starters.

Florida St looks to rebound from a 7-6 year. Willie Taggart will enter his first year as the head coach. Returning is quarterback Deondre Francois that had his sophomore season end in week one last year after a season ending injury. With Francois out the Seminoles offense produced 27.8 points with 352 yards which was a huge dip from the 2016 campaign. Running back Cam Akers in his freshman year ran for 1024 yards and a very good 5.3 yards per rush average. Florida St did improve their defensive numbers in 2017 holding teams to 21.2 points per game. Issue is only four starters return this season.
