Marshall at Hokies

A season-opening loss may not have been what No. 14 Virginia Tech was looking for last weekend, but all is not lost for the Hokies.

Virginia Tech will attempt to win its 14-straight home opener on Saturday at 1:30PM ET when the Hokies host Marshall at Lane Stadium.

Bet Marshall at Virginia Tech

A 34-24 defeat at the hands of Alabama pushed the Hokies out of the top 10 rankings this week, but Virginia Tech showed signs of promise, leading 17-16 entering the final quarter of play. Tyrod Taylor had a game he would rather forget about, throwing for just 91 yards while getting sacked five times and finishing with -26 yards rushing. The Hokies had just 155 yards of total offense, but stayed competitive thanks to a pair of turnovers and special teams play. Dyrell Roberts returned a kickoff 98 yards for a score in the game and averaged 48 yards per-return on the night.

The Thundering Herd defeated Southern Illinois 31-28 last weekend as quarterback Brian Anderson threw for 316 yards and three scores. Chuck Walker was the top receiving target of Anderson, as he caught 10 passes for 119 yards while Cody Slate had nine receptions for 114 yards. Defensively, Marshall forced three turnovers and had two sacks against the Salukis.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made Virginia Tech 19.5-point home favorites over Marshall on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 42.5.
