VA Tech Season Odds

Fresh off yet another ACC championship, the Virginia Tech Hokies not only want to win their conference in 2009, but also compete for a national championship.

Bet 2010 BCS National Championship Odds

Frank Beamer led the Hokies to a 10-4 overall record last year and although they didn’t dominant the competition, VA Tech won when it mattered most, beating Boston College in the ACC championship and Cincinnati in the Orange Bowl.

Back for another season is leading rusher Darren Evans, who compiled 1,265 yards on the ground last season. Raw but talented quarterback Tyrod Taylor also returns to the Hokies backfield after throwing for 1,036 yards, as does receiver Jarrett Boykin, who amassed 441 receiving yards.

Defensively, VA Tech will welcome back defensive end Jason Worilds, who totaled eight sacks last season. Also returning are linebacker Cody Grimm (71 tackles) and cornerback Stephan Virgil (six interceptions).

According to oddsmakers from online sports book from SBGGLOBAL, the Hokies have opened at 17/1 to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. At those odds, the Hokies are somewhat of a risk because they lost defensive pieces Victor Harris, Orion Martin, Purnell Sturdivant and Brett Warren.

That said, the Hokies don’t play in a dominant conference and if they can go through the season unscathed, they’re going to have a shot to compete for title. But Taylor might be the key. If he can continue to develop, VA Tech is going to be tough to beat in the ACC and then who knows how far they can go.
