VA TECH / VIRGINIA +10.5 4.4% TEASER OF THE WEEK
VA TECH PK (PART 1 OF TEASER)
I love Virginia Tech as a teaser this week. There is no way BC vs. a quality defense scares me. This is a team that even with Patrick Towles is going to be able to score enough to stay with a talented Virginia Tech team that has not covered the spread in back to back weeks because of the bounce of the ball. Against Tennessee there were 7 total fumbles and they recovered 0 of them. Justin Fuente is a very good coach and he will be harping on that all week long. I expect this offense to click as they are better than last year with JUCO transfer QB Jerod Evans. A dual threat QB with an accurate arm. Thatâs enough to give BC some issues here. They had those issues in road games at Louisville and Clemson a year ago as they were -300 yards in both. Virginia Tech is absolutely of that caliber in my humble opinion and I think they want to prove something this week.
VIRGINIA +10.5 (PART 2 OF TEASER)
Virginia already showing improvement under Bronco Mendenhall, a coach I can really respect. Itâs worth noting that Mendenhall is very familiar with this Connecticut team having faced them the last two seasons. I think this is extreme value at +4.5, but Iâll jump on it with the teaser and be even more confident. BYU defeated Uconn the last two years 65-20 and outgained them by 500 yards. Virginia is a team that always has the recruits, but the coaching under Mike London has never lived up to the potential of the players. For instance they did not go to a bowl game last year but were +5.1 ypg in conference play in the ACC. Speaking of poor coaching as Uconn was down 21-0 against Navy, but made a comeback for the upset. Also note teams trying to battle back the following week after playing a service academy is never a very good proposition to be in making the fading of Uconn even more exciting this week.
