Hokies deserve credit

Yes, I'm at the ACC championship, but I couldn't help but realize today that Virginia Tech went 2-1 against nonconference teams that played/are playing for for their conference title games. The Hokies beat Nebraska and ECU, and lost to SEC champ Alabama. And, might I add, Virginia Tech put up a heck of a better fight against the Crimson Tide than Florida did today.

The Hokies deserve credit for this, as Nebraska is trailing Texas 7-6 at the half, and ECU beat No. 21 Houston, 38-32. Not only did Virginia Tech have the guts to schedule those teams, but the Hokies came out on top against everyone but Bama. Good luck finding another team in the country that can lay claim to that today.
