Virginia Tech suffered a loss to Old Dominion in the season opener, but it responded in a big way. The Hokies have won two straight games and they have been getting it done in a dominant fashion.

The college football odds for this game have the West Virginia Mountaineers as three-point betting favorites over the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Let’s check the latest, stats, injury reports, and college football lines for West Virginia vs Virginia Tech.

West Virginia Putting Up Points

The first two weeks of the season did not go well for West Virginia, but this team was able to take out some frustration on Towson 65-7 a week ago. Head coach Neal Brown spoke about that win, saying, “These types of games are important. For the morale of your football team, they’re really important.”

The Mountaineers are scoring 46 points per game and they have even been impressive on offense in the losses. West Virginia has been averaging 513 yards on offense, and they get it done with a balanced attack.

The defense for the Mountaineers has been the biggest issue as this team is allowing 33 points per game. West Virginia must find a way to turn things around on that end of the field.

Hokies Have to Get Stops

The Virginia Tech Hokies don’t have an offense that is capable of doing a ton of damage, but they can get stops on defense. Virginia Tech is holding opponents to just 12 points per game and that unit has to take over this game.

The run defense for Virginia Tech has been especially dominant, holding opponents to just 42 yards per game. West Virginia has a ton of talent in the backfield, but Virginia Tech has the defensive line to shut them down.

Quarterback Grant Wells has thrown for 651 yards and four touchdowns, but he also has four interceptions. Virginia Tech can’t afford turnovers if they are going to win this one.
