What will be a factor is Virginia Tech's defense, which gave up only 22 points and 340 yards per game last season and returns nearly everyone. West Virginia's offensive line faces what will arguably be their toughest defensive front of the season. "I grew up in Bramwell, West Virginia, a die-hard Mountaineer fan and attended WVU".

He didn't see defensive end Trevon Hill, however, who dropped back into coverage at the last second and notched his first career interception to end the drive.
The first quarter was a battle of defenses, with the Hokies taking a 3-0 lead into the second quarter.
That last game, played in Morgantown in 2005, resulted in a 34-17 Virginia Tech victory - West Virginia's lone blemish on the way to an 11-1 season and a Sugar Bowl victory over SEC champion Georgia. They appear to be much more sound on that side of the ball. "Tech wins it 27-24".
