Halloween Hokies Take On Louisville
A tough road loss to Wake Forest last week left an unpleasant taste on every Hokie palate. That will be covered up this Saturday by candy and your beverage of choice. There's a full moon on Halloween as the Hokies head to Louisville for the first time since Antonio Freeman was a sophomore and the team finished 2-8-1.
Deshazo to Freeman!!!! Never thought I’d have a record breaking career. Thanks Coach Beamer for taking a chance on the kid from Baltimore 🙌🏽🙌🏽 https://t.co/8gIgYUMlBv— Antonio Freeman (@afreeman86) October 29, 2020
Clearly a lot has changed since then but Tech will wear a similar uniform combination to combat Louisville's creepy blackout efforts. Don't worry, the Hokies have plenty of spooky stuff to counter with.
Sleep with one eye open indeed.
Look for plenty of explosive plays on the ground in this outing. Louisville's Javian Hawkins is second among P5 running backs with 20 runs of 10 or more yards. Tech's Khalil Herbert is right on his heels with 19 of his own.
Time to rest up for the weekend as I give you my Halloween costume complete with mediocre acting. Apologies to the great Bob Uecker. We make picks for Virginia Tech-Louisville as well as the suddenly very interesting Clemson-Boston College game.
Be safe and as always enjoy the games!
