Wake Forest Demon Deacons (4-2) vs. Virginia Tech Hokies (4-2)

Saturday, October 16th, 2010 3:30PM ET

Line: Virginia Tech -23

Wake Forest has been having a rough set of weeks lately, losing their last four games. On the other side of the field, Virginia Tech has been hot, winning their last four games. The Hokies have found their offense as of late, dominating Boston College, and doing a great job against NC State and Central Michigan. They also possess a deep running game that can be a headache to slow down for coordinators. Wake Forest has also flashed a decent ground game, averaging 198.7 rushing yards this season.

Keys to the Game:

–          Tyrod Taylor has been one of the main reasons for the Hokies recent success. The senior quarterback has thrown for 1,030 yards, 9 touchdowns and three picks this season. Last weekend he took his game to the ground, running for 127 yards and two touchdowns.

–          Wake Forest’s freshman quarterback, Tanner Price has done what he could this season to try and bring some wins to this squad. So far he passed for 631 yards and five touchdowns this season. The team should’ve been able to close their close games against Georgia Tech and Navy, for a record of 4-2, but are now in a big hole. Their game at Virginia Tech is crucial to their season.

–          Darren Evans has burst to become a crucial part of the team’s attack. The junior has scored all five of his touchdowns in the last four games, and has rushed for 359 yards all season. Last week he had a tough time moving the ball, running for only 35, but he should be able to have a better game this weekend.

Wake Forest sees the importance in this game, expect Price to try and generate some offense for the Decons. Virginia Tech has been sizzling lately; they should be able to continue this groove when playing at home. Their running game should close out any chances for a win by Wake Forest.

Free Pick: Wake Forest +23
