After struggling most of the season, Virginia Tech earned a Bowl bid with their convincing win over Marshall.

Rest, no relaxation. The Hokies were off this past weekend, but Bud Foster and the young defense were hard at work preparing for Georgia Tech's triple option offense. The CPJ/Foster chess-match is always fascinating, but how Fuente plans to exploit a GT defense with a lot of its own holes is just important. With a perfect record in the ACC on the l…
