Despite what the final score of 35-10 might indicate, the Hokies played a decent game. They certainly have things to work on but I came away impressed with their defense.
Looking at the rest of their schedule, they could do quite well:
Sat., Aug 31, 2013 vs. Alabama - Loss
Sat., Sep 7, 2013 Western Carolina - Win
Sat., Sep 14, 2013 at East Carolina - on the road but should Win
Sat., Sep 21, 2013 Marshall - believe it or not the Thundering Herd has a pretty decent team this year but - Win
Thu., Sep 26, 2013 at Georgia Tech - Whose idea was it to play games 5 days apart? Toss Up
Sat., Oct 5, 2013 North Carolina - at least they get 9 days to prep for the Heels - Toss Up
Sat., Oct 12, 2013 Pittsburgh - Win
Sat., Oct 26, 2013 Duke - Win
Sat., Nov 2, 2013 at Boston College - Win
Sat., Nov 9, 2013 at Miami - not an easy one - Toss Up
Sat., Nov 16, 2013 Maryland - Win
Sat., Nov 30, 2013 at Virginia - Win
* No Clemson, Florida State, or NC State could mean a division title in 2013.
