According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Virginia Tech has been given 150/1 odds to win the 2014 BCS National Championship. The Hokies have also been given odds of +800 to win the ACC Championship and odds of +265 to win the ACC Coastal Division.

Frank Beamer is in his 27th season as head coach of Virginia Tech, but the Hokies are coming off a 7-6 season, which was the lowest win total for Virginia Tech since 1997. This season, the ACC is expanding, but the Hokies have 17 starters back from 2012.

When it comes to the Virginia Tech offense, the team appears to be in good hands with senior quarterback Logan Thomas. Thomas threw for 2,976 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2012. His 16 interceptions were an issue, but Thomas shows some promise to be a future NFL quarterback. Virginia Tech will need more from its rushing attack this season. The Hokies had their lowest rushing average in five years in 2012, with not one rusher going over 525 yards.

Defensively, Virginia Tech was still strong, holding opponents to 22.8 points and 333 total yards per game. The defense brings back nine starters, including the full secondary. That unit will be led by cornerback Antone Exum, who had five interceptions a season ago. Virginia Tech was also solid at pressuring the quarterback in 2012, as the Hokies had 35 sacks. Defensive end James Gayle had just five sacks, but had 27 quarterback hurries in 2012. He is back to anchor the front seven for Virginia Tech in 2013.
