Virginia Tech vs East Carolina football: TV Schedule, Odds, Point Spread and Preview

After shocking the football nation by upsetting the Buckeyes, the Virginia Tech Hokies look to keep the momentum going as they face East Carolina State in Week 3 of the college football schedule at the Lane Stadium, Blacksburgh VA, on Saturday.

Quarterback Michael Brewer wants a continuity in what his team has started. Brewer threw for 199 yards in 23 of 36 passes and two touchdowns against two interceptions. He played with intensity and accuracy to lead the Hokies into having a 2-0 start of the season.

Ryan Malleck and Will Byrn would create mismatches down field against the slower defense of East Carolina. Last week, Mallec had 64 yards in six receptions, while Byrn added 51 yards in five catches. They would be significant in breaking the defense off the opponents.

Virginia Tech has the defense to neutralize the opponents’ explosive offense. As a matter of fact, the defense forced three interceptions on Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett. The Hokies can clamp down the air attacks of the Pirates.

The Pirates pose legitimate threat coming off a loss to South Carolina, 33-23. The explosiveness of the Pirates cannot be neglected at all as they average 517 yards per game, 25th in the nation.

Quarterback Shan Carden and wide receiver Justin Hardy would be the key to watch for in this game because they were components of getting big numbers. Hardy had 19 catches for 220 yards and two touchdowns in two games.
