Virginia Tech 21 @ West Virginia 27 | 09/18 | 4:00 PM UTC
West Virginia -130
ANALYSIS: Lot of people saying the wrong team is favored here. I don't think so. The Hokies are playing their first road game and it will be a zoo in sold-out Morgantown. Tech's defense is giving up a ton of yards but has gotten a bit fortunate when opposing teams reach the end zone. The Hokies took a hit last time out as captain and preseason All-ACC tight end James Mitchell was lost for the season. A couple of VT defenders are in question. I essentially consider this a toss-up so will back the home side. WVU apparently is healthy and 23-1 in its past 24 home non-conference games. We'll take the short moneyline in case it ends in a very close win for The Black Diamond Trophy.
