As a storied college football team, Virginia Tech will have another chance to recreate their football dynasty with big opportunities in the 2018-2019 season. With Justin Fuente in town, the talent level of recruits has increased dramatically, and replacing the critical elements of the dominant defensive group from just a year ago should not be a problem. Tremaine and Terrell Edmunds were not only stars but also pioneers for the next generation of Hokies players to be drafted in the first round.
Justin Fuente’s phenomenal turn around at Virginia Tech will continue in the 2018-2019 season. Sophomore quarterback Josh Jackson will look to build off of the incredible freshman season that saw him throw for almost 3,000 yards with 20 touchdowns to just nine interceptions. Losing six starters on defense will hurt, but for a group that only gave up 14.8 points per game, this dominant defensive group will look to only get better and fill the holes with the new opportunity. The opener against Florida State will be a tester, but the Hokies defense should be too much for the Seminoles allowing them to prevail. The only out of conference game to look at is the matchup with Notre Dame. If the Hokies prevail in that one, 10 wins should be a breeze.
