The team with the most on the line in Blacksburg, Virginia this weekend will be the Hokies. That's not all that unusual for a home team, but this weekend, perhaps an ACC title is on the line for the Hokies.
A win ties them with Virginia for the ACC-Coastal lead, and with an interstate showdown scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend, a win over the Seminoles keeps their title hopes alive.
For the Noles, it all revolves around pride. A Conference title is out of the realm, now it's just about stepping up for a second straight week, for the good of the program.
"That's big for any team that goes and beats a top ranked team, the next game is always going to be the biggest one, to show that the last game wasn't a fluke. So you have to go into the next game with the same mind-set," says former Madison High Cowboy and Seminole linebacker Geno Hayes.
