Virginia Tech Hokies College Football Betting

The Virginia Tech Hokies visit the North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday in a game that can be seen on the ACC Network.  The Hokies are coming off a very disappointing home loss to West Virginia that dropped them to 2-2 on the season. The Tar Heels are also coming off a disappointing loss, as they were beaten by Notre Dame, and that loss dropped the Tar Heels to 3-1 on the season. The Hokies have done well in this series of late, winning 7 of the last 10 meetings, and they won 17-10 at home against the Tar Heels last season. The Hokies have won 7 of the last 10 at North Carolina, but the Tar Heels pulled out a wild 56-45 home win two years ago.  The Hokies are listed as a solid road underdog in Week 5 college football odds.
