Happy Independence Day! Last year, the Confidential unveiled over-unders for each ACC school. For Virginia Tech, the over-under was set at 6.5 regular season wins. Ultimately, Frank Beamer’s last season resulted in 6 wins (under) and a bowl win, allowing him to go out on a great streak of 23 straight bowl appearances. But now it is on to 2016 and a new coach. The Confidential sets the over-under for Va Tech at 7.5 regular season wins.
Here is the schedule for 2016, courtesy of a great college football website:
Very likely wins: Liberty, Boston College, Syracuse, Virginia
Very likely losses: Notre Dame
Verdict: Like Miami, it is hard to know whether a new coach will take a step back or step forward. Or neither. Virginia Tech lost a legend, make no mistake. In the end, every game is winnable, while upsets of the Hokies are certainly possible as well. Tennessee will be a huge test, as the Volunteers should be a very good squad. At the same time, East Carolina always plays the Hokies tough. There are few guarantees. The Confidential sets the over-under at 7.5 wins.
What do you think? Will BC go over or under 7.5 regular season wins?
