#17 ranked Hokies headed to the Dome


BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10 SPORTS) – Virginia Tech is coming off a big win over a ranked UNC team and now turns their attention to Syracuse who has one of the top receivers in the ACC.

“He’s dynamic, he’s fast, he has great hands, haven’t really watched too much on them this year and we’re going to start that today so that’s what I have to say about them right now. I know he came from Maryland so I do remember him so looking forward to the matchup,” said Hokies cornerback Brandon Facyson.

“You have to be conscientious about the other weapons out there if you are dialed in on one guy you can leave yourself open to be exploited in some other places. We know they’re going to put the ball in the air and we know they can operate in an incredibly fast pace,” said Hokies head coach Justin Fuente.

With a record of 4-1 and climbing up in the AP top 25 poll, Fuente reminds his team to stay humble and keep working hard.

“What rings the truth for me is an understanding of why we’re in this situation is because of things that we’ve done and if we stop doing those things then will no longer find ourselves in these situations.”

The Hokies and the Orange last met in 2003, Virginia Tech won 51-7. Kickoff is 3:45 pm Saturday.
