Preview: Boise State vs. Virginia Tech

The biggest game of the holiday weekend comes Monday evening as #3 Boise State faces #10 Virginia Tech.

AP: There’s no need to convince Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer about Boise State’s credentials.

“I’m nervous about this game,” Beamer said, noting Boise State’s experience advantage.

Moore can make opponents uneasy. The junior threw 39 touchdown passes and only three interceptions last year.

“You’ve got a great quarterback,” Foster said. “Their running game is completely underrated. … And you’ve got two receivers that are as good as anybody in the country. And then a very, very good offensive line.”

With so much talk about what this game could mean to Boise State, it’s almost been lost that Virginia Tech could also vault into national title contention by beating the Broncos.

The past three seasons, Virginia Tech has been deflated by an early season loss.

“I think this team is different than the previous teams that lost those games,” Taylor said. “This team is more jelled and more together and I think we are at the ultimate goal of playing for the national championship. We all know it starts off with this first game.” (read the entire preview story below)
