Huskers & Hokies

No. 13 Virginia Tech can avenge a season-opening loss to a ranked team on Saturday when the Hokies host No. 19 Nebraska at 3:30PM ET from Lane Stadium.

Bet Nebraska at Virginia Tech

A 34-24 loss to Alabama in the season opener made way for a 52-10 win over Marshall last week for the Hokies. Virginia Tech racked up 605 yards of offense in the win, with Tyrod Taylor throwing for 161 yards and rushing for 58 as part of the Hokies’ rushing attack that totaled 444 yards on the ground. Ryan Williams and David Wilson each rushed for over 160 yards in the game while Williams scored three touchdowns. Defensively, the Hokies held the Thunder Herd to 252 yards of offense and 10 first downs.

The Hokies defeated the Cornhuskers last season 35-30 on the road, but Nebraska looks to be a tougher team this season after dominant wins over Florida Atlantic and Arkansas State. Last week, the Cornhuskers defeated the Red Wolves 38-9 behind 340 yards passing and four touchdowns from quarterback Zac Lee. Lee connected with Mike McNeill for two scores and also found Tyler Legate and Niles Paul for touchdowns. The Nebraska defense had four sacks and one turnover while holding Arkansas State to 274 yards of offense.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Virginia Tech 4.5-point home favorites over Nebraska on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 51.5.
