According to the latest oddsmakers, Virginia Tech has been given 100/1 odds to win the national title this upcoming season. The Hokies are also getting odds of +800 to win the ACC Championship and their over/under total for wins has been set at 8 games.

Beamer has been the face of Virginia Tech football for quite some time, but the Hokies have hit a bit of a rough patch over the last three years, going 7-6, 8-5 and 7-6. The Hokies are just 12-12 in ACC play in that span. Prior to this run, Virginia Tech had won at least 10 games in eight straight seasons.

The Hokies had another strong defense in the 2014 season, allowing just 20.2 points per game, which ranked 14th in the nation. The issue for Virginia Tech was its offense, which was spotty. Tech averaged just 24.1 points and 365.3 yards per game, both of which ranked in the bottom half of the nation. The good news for Virginia Tech is that it gets quarterback Michael Brewer back this season, so the offense should be stronger. In his first year as a starter, he threw for 2,692 yards with 18 touchdowns, but he also had 15 interceptions. The Hokies also return their top two rushers and leading three receivers from the 2014 season.

The Hokies were the lone team to beat Ohio State last season, which could make things interesting when they host the Buckeyes to start the year. From there, Tech hosts Furman and hits the road to face Purdue and ECU. In ACC play, Virginia Tech hosts Pittsburgh, N.C. State, Duke and North Carolina. Road trips will be made to Miami, Boston College, Georgia Tech and Virginia. If the Hokies’ offense can take a step forward, the Coastal Division is certainly within reach and an 8-win season should be obtainable or Beamer may need to think about stepping away.
