    vt -5 at the moment, moved from -3 if i recall correctly

    how improved is bo pelini's defense and will tyrod continue to prove an impotent passer against good defenses, that's my consequential question and angle.

    and honestly i don't know from either end.

    I think VT is a great play against Nebraska. My biggest plays the last two year were against Nebraska's big time opponents (USC 07, and Mizzo 08). I could see Nebraska getting blown off the field. They play three freshmen at Linebacker and have a junior college transfer at QB making his first start against a non-Sun Belt team.

    Since 2002 Nebraska has not beat a team ranked higher than #20... If they knock off Va Tech in Lane Stadium then I'll give them their credit, but until then I will play Va Tech all day in this situation.

    From Phil Steele's website: LY VT led 28-10 late 3Q before NU’s late comeback fell. That was a rare trip to the Midwest for VT and now the Huskers are on a rare trip to the East Coast and their Big Red faithful might have a tough time gobbling up tickets in Blacksburg. The Hokies have beaten the last 10 current non-conference BCS teams to visit by an average of 20 points per game. VT was outgained 498-155 in their first BCS game this year vs Bama. Nebraska QB Lee has passed for 553 total yards (74%) with a 6-1 ratio but is inexperienced, making his first road start in a very hostile environment while facing a solid defense. His stats were against a couple of Sun Belt defenses at home. Last year the situation greatly favored NU as VT had a young team making a rare trip to the Midwest and was off a couple of life and death 3 point conference wins. They dominated that game on the road and this year they are the more experienced team and at home and should get the win.
