Play Now at Rushmore Casino!

This past weekend, Alabama and Ohio State opened their seasons against over matched opponents on way to routes. Whether those games will help or hurt the top two teams in the country will not be known until the season plays out. The number three team, however, is taking no chances.

While the Crimson Tide and the Buckeyes were busy rolling up points on their weaker opponents, Boise State has scheduled a powerhouse program for their first game. Boise will be facing off against a top ten team, Virginia Tech, tonight. A win could keep Boise in the national title picture all season long.

There are coaches that believe that there is no benefit to scheduling tough non-conference games. Others, such as Frank Beamer at Virginia Tech, and Randy Shannon at Miami, feel that the a challenge early will prepare their teams for the upcoming conference schedule.

The Hokies have been hurt before by playing these games early, but in other seasons it has been a benefit. Of course, whether the team wins or loses the game is a big determining factor as to whether or not the game was beneficial. Tonight, a national title shot could be on the line for both Virginia Tech and Boise State.

The Hokies are the betting favorites, with odds makers giving Virginia Tech odds of -1.5. A point spread that low indicates that the game could go either way. It is likely that one or two plays could determine the winner. Boise State is driven by their offense, while Virginia Tech has traditionally been a strong defensive team.

The total for the game is 53.5, indicating that a high scoring affair could be on the horizon in the season opener for both teams. The Hokies also have one of the top special teams units in college football, and sometimes that can be the difference between a win and a loss. Game time is 8PM and the game will air live on ESPN.
